ABOUT THE SPACE
Welcome to our state-of-the-art podcast studio, designed to elevate your content creation experience. With two distinct recording locations, we provide the perfect setting for your podcast, instructional video, or online course. The Podcast Table : Immerse yourself in the heart of podcasting excellence at our half-circle table equipped with cutting-edge technology. We offer four premium Shure SM7B microphones, each with its own low-profile boom arm for ultimate convenience. To ensure a seamless recording experience, we provide headphones for each microphone, ensuring crystal-clear audio quality for every participant. Our versatile space accommodates both in-person and virtual conversations, offering the flexibility you need to connect with your audience. We've gone the extra mile to enhance your recording environment by installing acoustic acrylic glass windows, which effectively reduce street noise, allowing you to focus on your content. Plus, take your visuals to the next level with our four studio cameras that capture every moment with precision. The Cozy Couch Setup : For a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere, our cozy couch setup is the perfect choice. Here, you can comfortably host 2-3 participants with Shure SM7B microphones on floor stands. Whether you're looking to engage in an intimate conversation or create a virtual connection with your audience, this space offers both options, ensuring your content is both personal and professional. Your Ideal Recording Space : Whether you're planning a lively roundtable discussion with up to four participants or a cozy fireside chat, our studio provides the ideal setting. We are committed to delivering a premium recording experience that meets your unique needs and captivates your audience. And the best part? Our studio comes with the expertise of a dedicated engineer who will ensure your recording sessions run smoothly from start to finish.

Our studio offers the best of both worlds when it comes to lighting. You'll appreciate the inspiring natural light that floods the space through large circular windows facing south. These windows ensure that direct sunlight never interferes with your recordings. While we celebrate the beauty of the exposed brick and windows, we also understand that sometimes you may need complete control over your lighting environment.
For those moments when you require precise lighting control, each space in our studio is equipped with a professional lighting grid. These grids are ready to accommodate the lighting setup you need for your recording, ensuring that your content looks its best every time. Whether you're at the podcast table or on the cozy couch, our flexible lighting solutions empower you to create the perfect atmosphere for your content.
Soundproofed Space for Uninterrupted Recordings :
Step into a world of audio excellence within our meticulously soundproofed studio. We understand that capturing pristine audio is paramount to your content, which is why we've taken every measure to ensure your recordings remain undisturbed.
Ambient Noise Considerations :
While we've created a soundproof oasis, we're transparent about the ambient noise environment. Located on the vibrant Melrose Avenue, there may be occasional sirens and the rumble of loud motorcycles in the vicinity. However, your peace of mind is our priority. To mitigate these disturbances, we've installed Acoustic Acrylic Window Inserts on the windows facing Melrose. These inserts have proven highly effective in reducing almost all traffic noise, ensuring minimal interruptions during your recording sessions.
Rest assured that our carefully selected Shure SM7B microphones have been chosen for their exceptional noise-rejection capabilities. We've tested and fine-tuned our setup to ensure that even in the presence of occasional external noise, your recordings maintain the highest quality.
Studio Access and Accessibility :
Please note that our studio is located on the second floor of our building and is not wheelchair accessible. Access to the studio is via stairs, as there is no elevator available.

Our studio is fully equipped with everything you need for your sessions, eliminating the need for you to bring additional equipment.
