Studio B is a modern, stylish studio that is the perfect combination of a compact recording space with four isolated rooms, an acoustically sound and versatile control room, and powerful automated mixing capabilities.  Our students learn the functions and workflow of an industry standard control surface for tracking and mixing, as well as how to integrate outboard processing with “in-the-box” style mixing.

Studio B is perfect for smaller music recording sessions, radio & T.V. commercial voice-overs, audio for film/video, and foley.  Studio B features 5.1 surround sound capabilities, thereby enabling our students to learn and practice their surround-sound skills through various music and video mixing projects.
