The Control Room features a fully floating hardwood floor. This room has been analyzed and is designed for an accurate response at 85 decibels so you can trust your mixes in the real world. The main room is approx. 18 x 12 in a non-symmetrical design to minimize unwanted reflections.
High frequency diffusers and broad band bass traps along the side walls help control the sound as well.The floating hardwood floor is constructed of cherry, walnut and teak, utilizing the sonic properties of wood studio to enhance the audio properties of the room design.
Large 12 x 10 Vocal booth with "live" and "dead" sides, great for vocals, vocal groups, acoustic instruments or voice over.

Tracking and Recording - Created for bands and musicians, Alchemy studio features 4 rooms and an outstanding selection of gear and instruments.
We can record up to 32 tracks of 24 bit audio at once. I usually use 12 - 14 tracks for drums and 8- 10 tracks for the rest of the band. You can record live off the floor and use these tracks, fix these tracks, double or triple the bed tracks, or replace them completely with a new track.
