About Studio Two.

Simply put, Studio 2 is one of the best rock recording rooms in the world. Its high ceilings and mid-ambience provide a tight punchy sound constantly sought after by top producers like Rick Rubin. The studio has an additional drum isolation booth, a vocal isolation booth, and a Yamaha C7 grand piano that has been used on many rock albums, and private artist lounge.

Originally the site where the themes from many classic television shows were recorded (The Monkees, The Partridge Family, The Beverly Hillbillies, Hawaii Five-0), the studio later evolved to serve the needs of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Weezer, Metallica and countless other rock acts.

Studio 2 offers a Neve RCA Custom 8028 Console (40 channel), one of only 2 built with Class A discrete electronics. The control room is equipped with Meitners (available upon request) and ATC300A house monitors with NS10/ProAc speakers and are set up with Pro tools HD. Studer 827 & Ampex ATR102 (1/4 inch & 1/2 inch) Analog recorders are available on request.
