Studio A was the first room to be built here, opening in 1975. It features the same Studer Tape Machines, Outboard Gear, Microphones, and Monitors as Studio B. The main differences are the console and the size of the room. While smaller than Studio B, Studio A has four isolated spaces which makes it perfect for basic tracks with four to six players. The combination of first rate equipment, reasonable rates and one of the best studio pianos in New York has made it particularly popular for Jazz recordings.
Those with access to Microsoft Word 6.0 or higher can download a preformatted, easy to print equipment list for Studio A.

Although the recording area is smaller than in Studio B, Studio A has four isolated spaces and is excellent for tracking groups of up to seven players. The Drum Room is live and bright for a "big" drum sound, but can easily be made deader with some of our absorptive goboes. All four recording spaces and the control room are connected by tie lines and wire pass-throughs for added flexibility with amplified instruments.

Even if you do most of your work on near-field (small) speakers, you need big speakers you can trust to check the low bass. Our large monitors in both rooms are custom built cabinets with Gauss Coaxial Speakers and Subwoofers. They are loud and accurate and are tuned frequently to keep them that way. We also give you a choice of seven sets of nearfields:
We have several methods for setting up headphone mixes in each room to accommodate different types of sessions and engineers' preferences:
- Stereo Mix to Cue
- Stereo Mix + Aux Sends
- Four Independent Mono or Two Independent Stereo Mixes
- Personal 8 Channel Cue Mixers for each Musician, one station with dedicated reverb unit.
