From Our Editors
When it comes to recording, there are things you just can't do by yourself. While home-studio software has come a long way, even The Beatles would have sounded rinky dink on Garageband. For musicians who want stellar studio quality without having to sell their golden throats, Cross Keys Recording has the talent and the gear to make independent works sound like major label releases.
Founder Marty Mellinger knows his way around the knobs, having produced countless pop, jazz, rock, and classical albums, in addition to scores of television commercials. Marty's gifted with perfect pitch, and was a one-time contender for a keyboard role in the E Street Band—now he shares his musical and technical savvy with all who enter his studio. With equipment that would make young Phil Spector giddy, artists lay down tracks on the latest ProTools with a fat 24-track mixing board, and have access to groovy vintage gear such as the Neumann U87 mics, Hammond C3 organs, and Yamaha grand pianos.
