Studio Closed
Al Fierstein is closing Sorcerer Sound Recording Studios after 29 successful years. It is a pleasure to depart on a high note after recording the Norah Jones Grammy-winning album. The reason? Al is too busy to devote himself to the studio. Al will shift to full time operation of Acoustilog Incorporated, the acoustics consulting, studio design and custom electronics company.

Welcome to the Sorcerer Sound Home Page!

News: Norah Jones wins 8 Grammys for her album "Come Away With Me", recorded at Sorcerer Sound. Read more about it here.
We are a two room 24 and 48 track recording facility located in the historic Soho section of New York City

Our focus is on live recording.

We feature big rooms with high ceilings and professionally designed acoustics. We have over 100 microphones in our collection, including many vintage tube mics. Each of our Control Rooms features Neve and Studer equipment along with a generous assortment of outboard gear. We're especially proud of our large collection of vintage and tube equipment. We have some great instruments and amps, including a Steinway B Grand Piano in each of our studios. Perhaps most importantly, we have expert on-site maintenance to make sure that all of our gear stays in top condition. What's more, we encourage you to experiment by including practically all of our equipment in the basic studio rate.

In the other pages in our site you'll find detailed descriptions of Studio A (our smaller room) and Studio B (our larger room), equipment lists and even some articles we've written to help musicians learn more about studio equipment and the recording process. Or you can skip right to our Photo Tours of Studio B and Studio A . If you're thinking of printing up some of our information, please visit our Literature Download page. There you can download concise, easy-to-print versions of our equipment and client lists in Adobe Acrobat and MS Word formats. Have fun browsing and visit us again. We'll be adding more to this site in the near future.
