Walls

Every wall in the studio is constructed of two interior walls with 4 inch airspace inbetwen, making each one 13" thick. The "inner walls" were designed so that one never touches the other. Anytime support pieces are used, they are shielded with a thick, sound rated rubber treatment to keep any transmission of noise from occurring. Each wall is insulated with very dense fiberglass insulation, 1 layer of 1/2” QuietBrace sound-deadening structural sheathing topped by another layer of 5/8″ gypsum board which are placed together with an acoustical sealant applied in necessary areas. To top it off - each wall is never parallel at any angle with the adjacent wall. These well designed 13″ studio walls payoff two fold when recording:

1. The tracking rooms have a very low noise floor, ensuring that you capture the purest of recordings.

2. You will hear exactly what you are recording in the control room - not the bleed over from the sound source in the tracking room.

Wiring

Great quality recordings start with the basics. That's why we used high-quality Mogami cabling with Neutrik connectors throughout the studio to ensure we capture every detail of your performance in the studio.

Here are a few reasons we chose Mogami: (from their website) "There's a reason why Mogami is called "The Cable of the Pros." Virtually every major recording facility is wired with Mogami, which means that just about any music you listen to has passed through Mogami somewhere in the recording chain—from Fleetwood Mac to Foo Fighters, from Prince to Pearl Jam, and countless others. Why do so many discriminating artists and studios choose Mogami over other cable brands? It's simple. Mogami is unmatched for accuracy, extremely low noise, ease of installation, flexibility, and superior quality."

HVAC

A climate controlled A/C was designed with extra isolation as well as internal acoustic baffles. These precautions allow for a comfortable recording environment while keeping the noise floor controlled for optimum recordings.

Equipment

We offer 16 track recordings at up to 192khz with high-quality Focusrite Mic Pres. Record your tracks with ten of the most legendary mic pre-amps around the world using our UA Apollo 8P. Our equipment allows us to capture the best sound quality possible.

How we work.

1 The first step in the process is the initial recording. The studio is able to accommodate most any project, from solo artists recording one track at a time to full bands that want to track live.


2Once your music has been fully recorded it's time to mix it! Mixing your songs is important to get the levels of each track balanced and add things like compression, EQ, and reverb to make your music sound as big or as intimate as you want.


3 The final (and most important) step is mastering. Your songs need a final polish to make sure they sound great across all mediums. This is where that "radio" (professional) sound comes from!

Experience That Matters

Since opening Animal Kingdom Recordings in 2015, we have worked with hundreds of musicians from the panhandle and across the nation. Beyond producing and mixing, we collaborate with talented local musicians and producers to give artists every possible tool to create their masterpiece.
