A mobile studio to empower artists to create music in, and outside a traditional recording studio.
Thanks for checking out our project!
Here's our story:
Three years ago, we began to dream of a new and cost-efficient way to record. In this day and age where recording costs can reach into the thousands of dollars, we saw the gap between the costs of recording studios and the budgets of independent artists. With this in mind, we started to form an idea that would bridge these costs. The solution came in the form of a mobile recording studio...in a school bus. By constructing the studio within a school bus, we could create an opportunity for artists to cut costs dramatically and to record in almost any environment. Our project would eventually come to be known as “Transit Audio”.
The dream of Transit Audio is simple: a mobile recording studio that comes to you. It’s fully equipped to handle studio and live recordings, post-production mixes, audio repairs, and even audio for video. It features an ISO Booth and a 24 -channel snake that allows artists to record in an environment of their choice. And after a year of planning and two years working in multiple studios throughout Nashville, we have finally established the blueprint that will make Transit Audio a reality.
Our name is Transit Audio. Our mission is to capture the music of independent artists without altering its pure qualities. Transit Audio's studio will provide quality record production to the less-than-rich musician class. We'll even schedule weekends where we set up camp in a city to record high-quality demos so that local artists can take their next professional step. Furthermore, we seek to create a community of session musicians that doesn’t just encompass a city but encompasses the nation. This way we can call on a network of session players wherever the client may be located.
It can all be summed up in our video; "By supporting me, you're really supporting the artists everywhere who strive to create true music. And that's something I really believe we need more of in this industry."
Thanks again so very much for looking at our project and for your support!!
