Designed by the Walters-Storyk Design Group, lead engineer Randy Taub's new 4,500-square-foot Brooklyn Recording Studio complex in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill area is open. The complex takes up the full second floor of a pre-existing office building.
The 2,500-square-foot main studio is 5.1-capable and features two iso booths, a vintage 60-channel custom Neve 8088 console, Pro Tools|HD 192 system and Genelec 1039A speakers. A second room for mastering/overdubs is in the planning stages.
Taub has worked with such artists as Huey Lewis, the Neville Brothers, The Breeders, Squirrel Nut Zippers and Los Lobos, and has already booked sessions for producers Joe Chicarelli, J.D. Foster and Joe Henry.
