The Main Room
With its spacious, high-ceilinged main tracking room, a large control room, and three good sized isolation booths, the Library has hosted sessions with up to 13 musicians recording at one time.
The Library's control room was designed to function as a classic analog recording environment, irrespective of the storage format used. It is built around a large format analog console (a 48 input D&R Cinemix with moving fader automation) and lots of outboard processing equipment. The control room is 18 feet wide, 22 feet deep ,and 11 feet high; it can accommodate up to a dozen people comfortably.
The Tracking room at The Library measures 18x28 feet, with the ceiling varying from 12 to 17 high. The two small iso booths are 7 x 9 feet and 8 x 9 feet, while the third iso (which holds the studio’s Yamaha C7) measures 9x14 feet. The break room/lounge is also wired for use as a recording space, if needed.
The Library also offers some instruments for use, free of charge. There is a Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer Electric Piano, 5 Piece Gretsch drum kit with cymbals, and various acoustic and electric guitars and amps.
