about

Strat n wires.jpg

Two time Grammy Nominated chief producer, mixing engineer and Anthem's studio owner, Bryan David takes your music to an in-your-face warm place. With 18 years of professional experience working with bands, solo musicians, television and film, he still prides his work with very affordable prices.

"I am a musician myself." Bryan says, "I have been to many studios with hidden fees, long turn-around times, unpleasant staff, and just poor quality for the money. I have settled in to change that."

The rooms

Three rooms, specifically designed differently. The sound you get is not only the sound you hear. You also hear the sound of the space around the instrument or vocal. Our Live Room is different from most studios, we refer to it as a “Convertible Live Room.” One side is fully treated, and the other side is open and full of natural reverb. The fully treated side is our main tracking area, but has doors that open up to the other, larger sounding room. Both have 16 foot high ceilings, so playing with the space is totally up to you. The third room is the control room, boasting many analog and digital components. This room is really quite "dead.” This is ideal for fine tuning your sound.

the Mixer

At the heart of Anthem's studio is a vintage 32 channel Ghost analog mixing console. This console has the Neve/SSL mods performed to make some really great classic audio. We also have a 1976 TEAC 388 reel-to-reel tape machine for stem mixdown if you want that great tape saturation.


the outboard analog

Outboard mixing is crucial in this day and age to warm up those digital environments. We have rack gear from: Universal Audio LA610, Great River ME-1NV (neve 1073), DBX 386 with NOS 60’s Mullard tubes, Warm WA-76 (1176 clone), a pair of 1970's API 312's, Valley People Dyna-mite stereo, BSS dpr-402, DBX 160A pair, and many more emulations available via Universal Audio Apollo. We also have so many guitar and bass pedals to cove out your ideal tone. Drives, distortions, compressors, fuzz, delay, reverb pedals, etc.. the list goes on and on and on..


the monitors

Monitors, or speakers, we conduct our everyday listening pleasure on are the classic 1970's Yamaha NS-10m's. Yeah, those speakers you see in all of your favorite studio pics, we got 'em. Also we have a pair of professional Adam A7's and a sub, great for all day listening and tracking.
