Thanks for visiting! We are currently in the process of adding a bunch of songs that you will be able to listen to.
The room is very balanced and articulate. We’ll be getting some examples of raw recordings so you can hear the detail.
In the mean time, enjoy this mix below that was heavily pushed though vintage preamps for some color.
Check back in the next couple of days, or call and we’ll be delighted to give you “the grand tour” so you can hear the room in person.
We were glad to have Shelter from the Storm stop by and do a live session.
They are an awesome 3 piece from San Jose.
We just did a quick recording, everyone playing live together.
Here is a pic of a typical drum setup when bringing in your own kit. We’ll move our house kit out of the way, you get it your way
NSOT has been working on songs at The Engine Room in San Jose. Its been great having these guys come in and multitrack out their ideas. For the first song they layered each instrument one at a time; Guitar then Vocals, then Bass, then Drums! Afterward they showed us a new song they recorded live playing guitar and drums together, and wow these guys are great! Roaring yet poppy neo-punk and thick meaty songs! If you get the chance, don’t miss their show!!!
Indie Folk Punk trio Sara and the Jaybirds came in and rocked the place!
They spent only 4 hours, recorded multiple takes of 6 different songs, and walked away with a CD of their songs at the end of the night. Beautiful vocals and incredible lyrics, while bass and drums are oozing with a melodic vintage goodness.
Here’s one of the songs from the session after some mixing
They were great, look for them to turn some heads this Summer!
