Engineer Mike Pilkin has opened Redemption Studios (Clifton, N.J.), which features a live room and two control rooms. Control room A offers a vintage Neve VR60 48-track desk, while B offers Pro Tools|HD3. Also onboard is engineer/primary mixer Tommy Hayes, who has a slew of technology at hand: Quested and Yamaha monitors, Studer A827 and a wide range of outboard gear, mics and instruments.

Studio design was handled by Walters-Storyk Design Group's John Storyk, who brought in a top-notch team of professionals to work on the design and construction. Gregory Davis of Audio Engineering Services is on-call to maintain the Neve board.
“We expect word of mouth on Redemption to be a major component in driving artists here and we knew that quality makes the vibe,” said Pilkin. Storyk added, “It's interesting to see young engineers and studio owners who are committed to doing things the right way. We're proud to have had the opportunity to help bring this studio together.”
