Is the idea of setting up a home studio a little bit daunting? Or maybe you’re just really busy and don’t have the time to acoustically treat a room. Or maybe you want to do something nice for someone special in your life, but don’t know the first thing about recording. Well, that’s where we come in. Describe to us what it is you imagine yourself doing with a home studio, and before you know it we’ll bring your vision to life. Not only will your new studio be totally functional, but we’ll make sure that you know all of the ins and outs, as well as how to operate your new recording device(s) regardless of what you choose to go with. We’ve built both PC and Mac based systems for hobbyists and professionals, and even designed the live guitar rig for the Scissor Sisters! (No joke, just look for Mike’s name in the thank you’s of “Tah-Da!”)
Meet the Team
Mike began developing this specialty back in 2001 when his band, Little T and One Track Mike (That’s right, he’s a one hit wonder!) got a record deal with LAVA/Atlantic Records. After convincing Jason Flom to let him record the entire album himself, at the age of 22 he constructed his first high end studio in a summer home on LBI down on the Jersey Shore. The end result worked out pretty well and he’s still extremely proud of how that record sounds. Currently, he operates a small recording studio in Chelsea, Manhattan. You can find out more about that here. He also is one half of the children’s music group, The Flannery Brothers
