From Our Editors
Blue Light Digital Sound looks like somewhere you’d go to watch a band play a concert rather than record an album. Wood floors flank the 600-square-foot space, running adjacent to an exposed brick wall and parallel to the studio’s 20-foot ceilings. The other three walls, coated in periwinkle blue, cast a cool glow over the studio, setting the perfect mood for guitarists, drummers, and singers as they croon their track into an array of vintage and modern microphones. Throughout their recording session, musicians easily can oversee the editing and mixing process, thanks to a 51-inch flat-screen monitor that displays the goings-on in a big, bold, and clear format. A glass window also allows artists to communicate with the control-room engineers manning the 32-channel analog console, and SSL convertor or bashfully shoo away their proud mothers.
