Since opening its doors in 2008, Germano Studios in New York City—founded by Troy Germano, former CEO/Owner of the famed Hit Factory—has hosted sessions for the who's who of recording artists. In the studio's short history, top artists such as Lady Gaga, The Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, John Mayer, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, Britney Spears, Rihanna, and T-Pain have all called Germano home.
"Germano Studios is the next step in a logical progression of what a major recording studio should be," Porter says. "From writing and production to recording and mixing, we can easily accommodate any and every phase of the record making process. We're constantly updating and upgrading our facility with new gear and software, to not only reflect industry trends, but also stay one step ahead of them. We aim to marry the very best in analog and digital technology, and Focusrite strikes a balance between warmth and clarity, character and transparency. Focusrite products, above all else, sound great. This is our Number One requirement when we research and spec out new purchases. The ISA One, for example, is a well-built and versatile channel strip that offers a mic pre true to the classic ISA sound.”
Phil Wagner, Focusrite Novation Inc. president, adds, “Germano Studios is one of the latest and greatest studios in New York City. We’re pleased to see that the studio, now in it’s fourth year, is using Focusrite mic preamps for their prestigious clients.”
