We're in an old police station with 3 jail cells out the back which we use for gear storage.

Even has authentic prison graffiti!

I have a lot of somewhat unusual instruments like toy piano, upright bass, glockenspiel, melodica, chord organ, bass harmonica, and I also have an 88 key Rhodes. It's not a lot, but I think I'm safe in assuming there's plenty of studios that don't have those instruments on hand!

We have a Giant Drum/Live room. 65'X42' with 15' ceilings. It looks like a warehouse but sounds pretty damn good.

We have a freight elevator that you could pull your van into and bring it up with you if you like.

A creepy, life size statue of Elvis playing an acoustic guitar. The gtr is real even. When Elvis first showed up, it scared the **** out of me in the wee hours looking out through the control room window and seeing his silhouette. Creepy.

We are in what appears to be an abandoned building but my clients know better.

Excellent Greek restaurant and bar right next door. They show movies on our outside back wall for free.

Me, because I have several clones that function as assistants.

I have 8 different rotating speaker devices. I had to get rid of 2 or 3 just to make some space around here. Nuts!

Two fireplaces. Totally inconsequential to the recording process, but unique.

The design i guess, and the fact that there's no hardware compressor or eq. Also no patchbay and no boxes. Cables go through the wall and straight into the mic pres. Makes me work harder i guess.

What a wonderfully open-ended question! Yes, I do have 24' ceilings, but what makes them unique is the cloud:



You can read my explanation as to why this cloud is so remarkable.

The floor in the Music Room is unique:



The glass diffusors in the Control Room are unique:



The fully diffused reflection zone of the Annex control room is almost unique:



I say "almost" because the same principle is employed at Blackbird's Studio C. But I would argue that our implementation is more refined (and, at present, completely unique).

The chrome plated pneumatic bar stool/old tractor seat style seat with foot rest that is absolute perfection for sitting on and playing any sort of guitar in comfort.

I'd say it's a toss-up between:
my narrow-minded focus on specific recording methods and tools that work for me,
my general unwillingness to record other people's music and
my stubborn insistence on using obsolete, outdated gear.

Cheers,

Otto

Me!

And my market niche, which is to sell good recordings for cheap to people who might do some parts at home but for the price end up prefering to do the crucial recordings in acoustic isolated and professionally operated rooms. I built this studio very good yet small, it was expensive for me but I guess not a good deal for the contractor who had designed/built some 30 bigger studios at the time. It´s an about 3,5m x 3m x 3m box in a box with a control room about the same size and sounds surprisingly good for most musicians that came in and played, while it looks small it doesn´t sound like it, even for drums. Also it was a great investment real estate wise, it´s worth 3x what I paid for it 4 years ago.

I work fast and play, and as I´m a musician it´s easy to comunicate and collaborate on the musical side of things, also people tend to like to have someone like me to say if stuff is really in tune and working out musically. I always give honest advice for people to go away and rehearse before they spend more money going for something that they aren´t ready to.

Sometimes I´m not in the mood, that´s something I gotta work out.

sorry for the bad english

Clueless, I think I wet myself.

And here I am, with nothing but a nice pool and waterfall where you can listen to the mix. Meh.

.

At this point, I would say my monitoring is the most unique aspect of my studio.

For production/tracking/mixing, I'm using [closed box] Tyler Acoustics Linbrooks.

For mixing/mastering/QC, I'm using [open dipole] Linkwitz Orions+ with custom closed box subs.

The common denominator is the SEAS drivers.

I've never heard better detail in a driver.

Stunning speakers.
