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. We have a large room, very open with natural reverb, that is great for drums. And also a treated room that is good if you'd like to control the space. 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 quite "dead" and 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 tube pre (x2), BBE 882i Sonic Maximizer (x2), Warm Audio WA-76 (1176 clone), Rascal Audio 3630 mod (x2), and a pair of 1970's API 312's. Sitting above all of those on our rack, we have so many guitar and bass pedals to cove out your ideal tone. Drives, compressors, fuzz 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.

Great and creative atmosphere. Bryan knows what he’s doing when it comes to producing. Can’t beat the price, and the outcome is worth every penny.

Bryan David / Anthem is always my #1 choice of studio for world class broadcast quality recordings. The sound quality is incredible and Bryan as a Producer is an outstanding talent and collaborator, always with a highly-tasteful and team-player approach. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.
