The design is a collaboration between owner Justin Miller and designer Carl Tatz based on vintage tones and cigar-parlor vibes. Don't let the coziness fool you though, this space has nearly 100 dB in sound reduction between the tracking room and mixing room. And yes, We've tracked TONS of live bands with our setup, finding that the isolation from our three rooms is more than enough.
