Services

What We Do...

We are known as one of the premier recording studios in New York City. Our well furnished and great sounding live room has a full pearl drum kit with custom setups available, a Yamaha U1 upright piano, a wide range of guitar and bass amplifiers, and a full PA system. In addition to our live room, we also have a sound-proofed vocal booth. The vocal booth has a clear sight-line into the live room to allow for musicians to play live but in isolation. Our two control rooms also have windows into the live room, giving the whole recording studio a view into the action. All of our rooms are wired together to accommodate larger ensembles who may wish to record throughout the studio. We record in Pro Tools HD with a variety of digital gear and classic analog outboard gear. Please visit our Equipment List to learn more about what gear we use to record.

Recording

Our producer engineers have over 20 years of combined recording experience and have the highest level of proficiency in Pro Tools. In fact, some of our producers have worked directly for Avid as third-party software developers, helping make the plugins that all music engineers and producers rely on.

Mixing

Perhaps one of the most sought out services from Mirrortone Studios is audio mixing. Using top-notch gear, years of know-how, and an intimate understanding of Pro Tools, we offer time-tested and industry approved broadcast quality mixes. If it wasn't enough to view our client list, our music has been used on Television, Radio, and Film, including MTV.

Mastering

One of the most important, yet least understood, steps in the music production process is mastering. This involves assembling final mixes into the proper order, adjusting volume levels of each segment and using a variety of technical processes (EQ, compression, limiting, etc.) to polish the final mixes. When done professionally, mastering optimizes the sonic quality of the final track or album. Mirrortone has a track record or excellence in the subtle art of mastering. Whether it be piecing together that magnum opus of a record or putting the glitter on that hit-single, Mirrortone's music mastering is sure to take your final mix to that professional level you just can't seem to get.

Producing

You've written your masterpiece, now you need to make that composition come to life in a recording. Mirrortone can take your piece from sheet music or a lick on your guitar to the final mastered recording. Using the most qualified performers, studios, and engineers that fit your budget, you are sure to walk away with an industry standard, artistic recording. Regardless of whether you are an amateur or professional songwriter, composer, or full band, your recordings must speak for themselves. Don't settle for home recordings, or poorly mixed demos. Entrust your music to one of New York City's and the music industry's best kept secrets, and walk away with a professionally produced and mixed product.

The Recording Studio

The recording studio has a sweet-sounding live room, stocked with a complete Pearl and DW drum kit, Yamaha U1 Piano, Marshall Amps, Fender Amps, Peavey Amps, and a full PA system. Mirrortone's main control room is designed around a Protools 12 system, Trident Console, with an Apollo 16 interface to utilize the digital emulations of classic analog gear for realtime recording processing. In addition to the main system, Mirrortone Recording Studio houses select outboard gear for advanced mixing and recording applications. The right music producers plus the right recording equipment equals the best possible tracks.

A completely soundproof vocal booth ensures that every subtlety of the singer is captured and can be mixed appropriately. There are sightlines between the live room, control room, composition studio, and vocal booth so that full bands can perform and record live, yet in isolation. A fourth room houses a composition suite that doubles as a nap room for those long recording sessions. In larger band situations the additional composition suite can be dialed into the recording for another isolation room.

Mirrortone Studios Control Room

Rocking a vintage Trident 65 Recording Console, one of the best vintage boards you will find in a Manhattan recording studio, our control room is setup for comfortable mixing, recording, and producing.

Mirrortone Studios Live Room

Stocked with a Yamaha U1 piano, Pearl Studio Drum Kit, a top-notch mic locker, collection of premium amplifiers, our live room is large enough to record a 6 piece ensemble and intimate enough to cut vocals. Details

Architecture

We are not just engineers and producers, we are also musicians. When we are not recording other musicians we are playing and recording our own music. With a great collection of instruments we produce tracks for our artists as well as television, film, and commercials. Details

Minimalismo

Our studio is built around having the best of both worlds, analog and digital. If there is a plugin for that, we have it. But sometimes we like to get on the floor and turn some dials on our rack gear. Details

Trident 65 Recording Console

Perhaps one of the main reasons people love our recordings is because we use some of the best preamps ever created, the Trident 65 rocks 32 of these vintage warm preamps. Details

Vocal Booth

Our isolated vocal booth is custom finished with repurposed wood to get the warmest vocals we can. Unlike most studios, our iso booth is large enough for more than just one person, and their are site lines into all other rooms of the studio.

Piano and Drums

Two of our favorite instruments to record in one picture. Come record on our Yamaha U1 piano, heralded as one of the best pop and jazz pianos ever created, and found on records by Cold Play, Alicia Keys, and Chick Corea. Our drum kit is a Pearl Studio edition with fresh heads, a DW snare, and an array of cymbal options. Details
