Sound Garrison Recording Studio

While I originally intended to major in music and sound recording, I never completed that degree, choosing instead to pursue social science. In 2009 I was approached by a friend wishing to record some of his own music; we put some money together and purchased some modest equipment. I began studying the physics of sound and decided to build a studio with the singer/songwriter and small ensemble in mind. It is intimate and comfortable, complete with well-treated and equipped mixing and tracking rooms.

Services

Tracking

Sound Garrison is a comfortable and intimate tracking facility, ideal for the singer/songwriter or small ensemble (instrumental, vocal or experimental). I emphasize taking the time to get the right sound for each project, and encourage artists to experiment each session.

Mixing

Sound Garrison is a dual DAW facility (Logic and Mixbus). Professional and inspiring results are now achievable without an analogue mixing console or tape. It is the human factor — the drive to understand the song and bring out its essence through the mix — that is decisive.

Mastering

Sound Garrison is equipped with mastering-grade monitors, a well-treated mix room, along with an array of mastering-grade software compressors and limiters, liner phase software equalizers, as well as hardware equalizers for added character.
