Tube mics

All set up for a two day vocal session with our Manley and Vintage U-47 Tube microphones. Two Neve 1073 mic pre’s and a CL2B are also in the chain.

Some updates on Area 51 Studios

The summer has been hot, our AC has been cold, and we have been chock full of some great sessions. George Benson, Ryan Leslie, Talib Kweli, LL Cool J, Cassie, Hot Rod, Conor, Rodney Jerkins, One Love, and MORE! Our close friends and family The Closers (CJ, Joe Boom, and Infinity) have had some great placements these last few months and we congratulate them and wish them continued success. Area 51 has added a JZ V47 mic to our collection and we have had nothing but positive feedback with it. Fantastic sounding vocal mic! Roey was kind enough to bring his JZ BH-1 mic in and it is sounding great with acoustic guitar tracking. John Legend put our Vintage U-47 microphone to use and raved about the sound. We have some other exciting things in the works (new upgrades and new room!) and will post them as they become concrete. We thank everyone who has supported us and look forward to making new friends and hopefully long lasting relationships with you all! Come and see why so many now call us home!

Chugging along…

Hi everyone! Things are chugging along at Area 51. We are close to completing the renovations on our second studio. The room will be a comfortable tracking and mixing space with control room, ISO booth, and lounge. We should be ready to rock in this room by the end of week. That will give us two comfortable studios for you too schedule your projects in! We are conveniently located on West 51st Street near all the labels, public transportation and great restaurants. Our protools rigs were recently upgraded to Protools 8, are chock full of plugins, and we have a great microphone and outboard collection, pyramix, and sonic solutions (with NOnoise).Call for an appointment to see the space if you haven’t already.
