best studio in Nashville
from the first phone conversation to the rough mixed product, Platinum Lab Recording was great. The sound quality, true isolation, gear, and people were wonderful. Travis Brigman is amazing, as is the owner, Matt Ridenour. I highly recommend this studio for your next project.
Best sounding room, low ear fatigue
I've recorded here several times, and I have to say that the Big Boy studio is the best sounding room I've ever worked in. The studio proper is huge and ver well tuned. We were able to record strings and choir at the same time and the acoustics allowed us to use the bleed to our advantage, making for a very lush recording. The control room is similarly spectacular - our little Genelec near-fields were the best I've ever heard them, and we were able to mix for hours on end without any appreciable ear fatigue. The staff is always friendly and Sharon, the studio manager, goes out of her way to make every guest feel welcome. The room rate is high, but reasonable, and if you can fit it in...
Quiet, Comfortable, Cool
I record here pretty frequently, and as an engineer, I love the place. The vintage 1974 Trident TSM console takes some love to operate, but rewards you with some amazing sound. The mic pres are all custom, so I find little need to go outboard. The studio proper is fantastic, allowing the engineer to get some truly great sounds that he wouldn't neccesarily expect to get in a room this size. Careful thought went into the design and construction of this studio and it shows. This is *the* place to record things the right way.
