"SF's best kept secret. A great sounding room, totally pro staff
and my favorite API console."
— Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, Jason Mraz, Frank Zappa)
Our Recording Spaces
25th Street offers 3 primary recording spaces, acoustically isolated, and designed with great sight lines for easy visual communication. Our large, wood live room gives ambient life into recordings and creates a sense of warmth and presence. This 1400 square foot room can be set up in a variety of ways to accommodate large setups including chamber orchestras for film scoring. Skylights in the ceiling flood the room with natural daylight for a comfortable atmosphere.
Iso 1 is our tightest ambient space. It's extremely versatile, often used for vocals, instrument amplifiers, and acoustic instruments. Producers and engineers enjoy excellent visual communication provided by the floor to ceiling windows during critical vocal recordings, voice-overs and ADR work.
Iso 2 is a medium-sized recording space capable of holding a full drum kit, or our Steinway grand piano. The walls are covered with reflective wooden diffusion panels, which provides a natural and controlled ambience. Iso 2 is an amazing sounding room that works extremely well for any instrument.
In addition to Iso 1 and 2, there are up to 6 additional spaces which are accessible via tie lines throughout the facility. Amplifiers, Leslie speakers, or other instruments that need to be acoustically isolated can be located in the Hallway, Vestibule, Musician's Lounge, Lobby, Edit Suite, and Mezzanine.
