Studio

The private recording facility at Ironbird Studios is a custom built, 650 sq. ft. workspace – which features 3 isolated production rooms.  The acoustically treated rooms were purpose-built for audio recording and production, and the double layers of laminated glass allow multiple angles of visual communication during performance while still maintaining considerable acoustic separation.
