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. Please see our equipment list below.
