Equipment and capacity

The Maud Moon Weyerhaeuser Recording Studio

Our primary recording space, The Maud Moon Weyerhaeuser Recording Studio, is spacious enough to accommodate a 60-piece chamber orchestra. It features the latest in recording technology with a 36-channel Neve 88 RS console and ProTools HD recording system. The space offers a warm and clear sound recognizable to fans of public radio's Saint Paul Sunday®, Performance Today® and studio sessions on The Current®. The studio also has an isolation booth (a favorite with drummers) and a beautifully maintained Steinway D concert grand piano.

Studio P

Studio P offers a more intimate recording environment, equipped with a 32-input API Legacy console. This comfortable space is an ideal tracking and mix room for a folk or rock band, particularly those on smaller budgets. Studio P is also in constant demand as a voice-over studio for our most exacting commercial clients. It features a nice microphone selection and full ISDN connectivity.

We're excited to announce that we've just finished outfitting the studio with a Dynaudio Surround monitoring system and Euphonix surround mix controllers.
