Studio Recording

Music production has changed a lot since the days of tape, but what hasn't changed is getting a good performance with the right microphone. Zoo Station Studios, Hooz Audio's current home, has spaces for vocals, drums, guitars, vintage keys, and acoustic instruments, and allows Tom to offer all aspects of studio music recording. Armed with Apogee A/D conversion, Line Audio Design and Sound Devices Mic preamps, Neumann, Cascade, and Sennheiser microphones, Tom can record soloists, small ensembles, or full bands.
