Any studios in the DC area??
Ok moderators move this one wherever you would like if you feel this is inappropriate.

I am moving to the DC metro area (either Gaithersburg, Germantown, or Frederick) and want to get "in" at a studio in the area.

What can I offer?

Well about 5 years of recording experience ranging from Marching Bands to Rock bands. I have a Music Composition Degree and can read drum charts, and all versions of traditional music. (movable clefs, treble, bass, etc.) I don't do guitar tab, however. I have written for string ensembles, brass groups, woodwinds, and melodic percussion instruments. (Vibes, Marimba, Glock, etc.) I have also played drums in a band for around 4 years now and we are currently working on our second album.

I have worked with a variety of Daws and mixing boards. (DP, Adobe Audition, Sonar, Samplitude, and a little in Pro Toolz) I haven't spent any time in large format consoles but am a very versed in signal flow so it wouldn't be hard to adjust.

I currently do contract work running sound here and there and for a sound company that is close by where I play stage monkey and generally feel like I am wasting my time mostly.

So if you need a paid intern, someone to sit and track, a drummer to come in and help you get the kit sounding good, or a good cup of coffee at your expense, PM me. yingyang

I've met Don Zientera at TapeOpCon. He's very cool and quite approachable. He's the owner of Inner Ear where all the cool DC bands seem to go. If I were moving there I'd call him first.

Good luck with the move!

Yes, definately check out inner ear + silver sonya for mastering.

Thanks for the kind suggestions,

Anyone know of other places maybe in Baltimore, Annapolis, or somewhere else within say an hours drive?

I had my own rooms when I lived in Annapolis and in Arlington but did many projects at Cue in Falls Church in their SSL room. Oasis and Bias are also well-respected facilities in the DC area.

It's probably a little far, but I make it from Charlottesville Va. area to D.C. in about 1 1/2 hrs. And this studio is
