FACILITIES
Bird Dog Record's Studio is a treasure chest of some of the finest equipment available within todays recording technology. The studio was literally built from the ground up, having the floors, walls and ceiling lined and filled with 16" of sound batt material. Designed with engineers Frank Filipetti and Dr. Toby Mountain in mind, with an open concept to the room.  Inside the studio, the walls are lined with sound deflectors and absorbers, placed by using a Spectrometer - measuring wavelengths from sound and correcting for hysteresis (ambient distortion) within the studio. The layout of the room gives the feel of the engineer and recording artist being within the same space, not isolating one from the other. Yet allows for the artist to feel comfortable and not crowded with their own space. The studio is alarmed and monitored 24 hours a day.


The studio blends digital and analog quite nicely using the following equipment:
