About

$5,006

35

We (Andrew Marr and Justin Gerrish)  started this studio partnership back in November 2017.

We took an empty factory loft...

...and turned it into a 2 control room studio with a live room and 2 iso booths. 

The idea was to create a space for musicians, producers and engineers where they could work out of and maintain high quality sound without a high price tag. There was a lot that we had to accomplish and we've been able to do most of it. Here's some of what went into building the space...

We had to float a floor

 Frame and sheetrock an 18 foot wall 

build a hallway/sound lock area

build double paned, insulated windows

insulate, decouple, and sheetrock the live room

unpack

and lots of other precarious and time-consuming things not depicted in these photos.

We've done ALL of this on our own, with the help of a couple friends and family members, and we've reached a point where we need to hire professionals to finish off the last few important things, such as our HVAC system, door isolation and electrical work/wiring. 

We need YOUR help to make this happen. 

In preparation for the final completion of the studio we are using this kickstarter to pre book sessions and offer services and rewards at discounted rates (available for 30 days only). Not only will your pledge go towards your session and finishing the space, but any excess funds we raise will go towards buying more AMAZING gear, and general maintenance of the vintage gear already in the studio.

P.S. If you have no interest in any of our services, you can still donate any amount of your hard earned money in the "$1 or more pledge section" and we will share photos of the finished space to show how your donation helped us achieve our goal.

We really thank you for taking the time to read our story!

Risks and challenges

The risks have already been taken, and we have overcome many of the challenges with building a recording studio. Float floors (check), isolate windows (check) run cables (check) isolate doors...erhm we're working on it, but we'll get them there.
