Why record at Area 51 Studios??

Area 51 Studios has a long list of famous performers, artists, and entertainers coming through it’s doors. We have the pleasure of working with all genres of music. We provide recording, mixing in stereo and surround, and mastering services. Our studios are the perfect location for voice over work for film, TV, and spoken word. Though we don’t have cavernous live rooms to track live bands we do more than our fair share of it. We pack a huge punch in a comfortable environment, Our staff are knowledgeable, helpful and their musical exposure diverse. We have a large assortment of microphones, protools 10HD, a sizable collection of outboard gear, and a good amount of USB and weighted keyboards. Most importantly our rooms sound great…what you hear is what you get. From our large Augspurger monitor system, Genelec 1031’s or 8050’s, Yamaha NS-10, B&W’s, and Auratone speakers you have quite a choice of Club too critical listening options. And lastly our location in midtown on the fringe of Hells Kitchen is easy to get too, surrounded by hotels, attractions, bars, clubs and fantastic dining options. We offer very competitive hourly, block, and long term rates. We hope you’ll consider Area 51 NYC for your next project.

New Monitors

Speakers are in our north room and sound great. We installed two double 15″ Augspurger cabinets with two 18″ cabinets to boost the bottom. We are powering them with Crown Reference and Bryston amps. These are the speakers from Sony Music Studios D room for those of you who had the pleasure of working on them before. In addition the room comes equipped with Yamaha, Genelic, and for the real audiophiles a set of B&W 802’s. We have had the pleasure of having sessions with T.I., Gucci, R Kelly, and Gail Scott to name a few. Please email us or call if you would like a tour of the facility.

We finally have our elevator back….hooray. We had a water main break that took the elevator out quite some time ago, but we are finally back online! With that said we appreciate all of you who have dealt with the walk up the flight of stairs. Now with that hurdle out of the way….we have made a few changes to the facility. After months of deep contemplation we have decided to part with our Euphonix console. It will certainly be missed, but we just did not find ourselves utilizing it as much as needed to justify it. Sooooo we put our funds into a set of dual 15″ Augpurger speakers and are almost done installing them in the North Room. We also added two 18″ subs to both our North and South rooms. We have added a few jars pieces of outboard as well. After our trip to AES in San Fran we are working on adding a few more choice pieces we encountered on our adventures through the convention aisles….and bars:)


For those of you who are already frequent flyers at Area 51 we thank you. For those of you who have not had the pleasure…or have not been there in a while, we hope you will come by and see as well as listen to the rooms. Both control rooms are comfortable, have lounges, and spacious vocal booths. Best of all it it extremely private and very reasonably priced. We look forward to showing you ourselves. Hope to see you ALL soon. Happy Turkey Day till then!!!

November and beyond

Hi everyone. Been a while since we posted any news so figured it was about time we did. We have been extremely busy at Area 51 with some great projects in both our studios. We really appreciate everyone who has made us their home. We have been making improvements to the facility by upgrading the monitors in our south room to Tannoy 15’s. In the North room we just purchased a set of Augspurger designed dual 15″ monitors and will be installing those within the week. More upgrades and additions are in the works. As always we hope you will come by and see what the buzz is about!
