Although it's new, I'd put Manifold up there.

Oceanway, Manifold, Blackbird, Abbey Road, Conway, Air, etc...

I personally like the smaller cozy ones that cater to up and comers and focus on finding talent that many would consider a diamond in the rough. With all that said, I would imagine the above would be considered 'the best'.

If that's the case, then you probably can't go passed the Galaxy studios.

Definitely one of the best here in NC.

However, Echo Mountain and Mitch Easter's studio (Fidelitorium) here in NC are great as well.

I have personally worked both at The Hit Factory Miami and Capitol Studios, IMHO I believe they deserve a shot to make the list.

Motor Museum. Don't even care about the gear list, put a firepod in there for all I care. Beautiful place, is it still open? Doesn't get talked about much around here.

I was going to mention the Fidelitorium. I need to get back there and do more than listen to records...
