Arista recording artist/songwriter and producer Butch Walkerrecently opened up his Russ Berger-designed Ruby Red Productions inAtlanta. The retro/modern-inspired studio features two control rooms:“A Control” offers an SSL 4048 E/G with Ultimation, StuderMK III A800 24-track recorder and a Pro Tools rig; B features anexpanded Pro Tools MIXPlus system with Pro Control. An A/V SAN FibreDrive Network connects the two rooms.

“I just wanted a place that would be my musicalclubhouse,” Walker said. “That's why when you walk in here,it feels like a hangout rather than a sterile recording studio. Plus,it gives me a private place to produce my projects [including hisrecently released Left of Self-Centered], with no worries aboutwhom I'm gonna write the check to for studio time. Beats the hell outof investing in the stock market!”

Recently in to record, with Walker handling production chores, wereSevendust working on their as-yet-untitled fourth studio album.
