Catching up

It’s been a while since our last update and we hope everyone is spectacular! Area 51 has been quite busy as of late. We have had some fantastic projects in the studio with various writing sessions, vocal od’s, tracking guitars, strings and a choir, voice overs, mixing and more! A good selection of our microphone collection that we purchased from the Sony Classical remote kit was recently used on a large ensemble recording session. Area 51 is the perfect studio for all your recording and production needs. The studio has a very robust selection of plugins, outboard gear, and microphones. As always are very grateful for all our loyal clients and family, and we hope you will become one as well!

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.

November update

North control room

North control room

Hello everyone! First we hope everyone affected by Tropical Storm Sandy are well on there way to getting back to normal. Our thoughts are with those who are still suffering. We were lucky enough too not have any significant damage though we, like many other businesses in the area, were effected by it.

With that said….we have had some great projects at the studio. This past month we have had some long and short term Jazz, R&B, Hip Hop, and Pop bookings doing everything from basic tracking, vocals and a variety of instrument overdubs, mixing and editing, mastering and voice over work. We also made it out to the San Fran AES show to look at some of the old, new, and upcoming technology that we feel would enhance the work environment for our clientele.

As the year is slowly winding down we are hoping you will consider us when booking time in NYC. We know there are many studios to choose from, but we strive to be your #1 choice. Our staff is friendly and knowledgeable, we are conveniently located on 51st Street in the Hells Kitchen area where the list of food and accommodation choices are endless, and we have a great and growing collection of equipment. We are always willing to tailor a package that works for all budgets. Most important of all we treat our clients like our family. We want your time with us to be productive and enjoyable.

Update time

There is much going on at Area 51 NYC and we are very excited as we gear up for the fall. Recently we have had a vast variety of sessions ranging from writing sessions, vocal overdubs, upright bass, guitar, voice overs for film, audio locked to pic, mixing, and to top it off now……Mastering. Some other points you may not have known about A51: Both our studios are completely private with their own control rooms, vocal booths and lounges in addition to our own private entrance. We are conveniently located on 51st Street near Hells Kitchen and have a huge amount of excellent food options within walking distance. We are very easy to get too, being near all major public transportation. We are very reasonably priced and cater not only to major label artists, but indie projects as well. We have years of experience and love helping each and every client with any of their needs. Everyday we are working on improving and making your session a productive and affordable one…which is why the list of artists, producers and engineers that work with us is growing.


We hope you will come by and give us a try. As always we appreciate those who already call us home!
