Grey Noise Studios Honors Hip Hop’s Past, But Eyes Its Future

Operating in a space laden with recording history, the fledgling facility has aspirational aims.

New York, NY (October 25, 2018)—Christina Chirumbolo and Stephanie Conte set up Grey Noise Studios in 2017. With the facility located in part of the Quad Studios facility in Times Square, they’re aiming for the site to emerge once again as a crucial part of New York’s Hip Hop recording community.

“723 Seventh Avenue is one of the most iconic music buildings left in New York—Tupac, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston have all recorded in this building,” said Conte. “Making it a studio once again felt like preserving a bit of history, while also providing a younger, cleaner vibe to fill that space in the market.”

Conte says that the facility’s heritage was a key factor in their choice of location, but a studio can’t survive on history alone. With an eye to the future, the studio has installed a Neve Genesys Black G32 as the centerpiece of its control room.

Chirumbolo, whose background is in young artist development, noted, “After installing the console, the first comments from our clients were that they felt bass was fatter and tighter on their mixes,” said Chirumbolo, whose clients include Goldlink, Smokepurpp and Lil Pump, among others. “They love the desk.”

Conte chimed in, adding, “Clients using the studio recently have commented that the mic buss gives deep bass with clarity and smooth top end. The workflow of template-driven control and instant reset allow our clients to set up sessions quickly and jump between songs and projects seamlessly.”
