Metrosonic Recording Studios
Metrosonic Recording Studio, New York City’s Premiere music recording & video production facility, located in Brooklyn, NY.
Welcome to Metrosonic Recording Studios – Brooklyn, New York
We began conducting our first sessions over 20 years ago and since then, Metrosonic Recording Studio NYC has continued to be regarded among the preeminent Brooklyn Recording Studios. Along with being a great place to create and record music, Metrosonic is now home to the Metrosonic music blog, and soon, the Metrosonic music player application, along with the expanding list of services we provide including video production. What sets Metrosonic apart in the highly competitive music and recording business in New York City? We believe it’s a creative, comfortable space, classic analog gear, and experienced engineers.
Peter began the studio in 1991 in a loft space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Back then, Williamsburg was hardly the bustling arts and music community that it is today. Metrosonic was among the first settlers into the neighborhood that now attracts artists and musicians worldwide. And along with the community around which has evolved and grown, Metrosonic has evolved and built from it’s solid track record of success, the reputation as a reliable, go-to Recording Studio in NYC.
Among the benefits of working in an Analog Recording Studio is the gear. At the helm of Metrosonic is a vintage Neve 5315 Recording Console. The Metrosonic mic closet is equally well equipped with a matched pair of the very rare RCA 44 ribbon microphones as well as Neumann UM57 , SM2 and Sony c37 tube mics. Metrosonic remains one of the few studios left in New York City still offering an all discreet audio electronics signal chain from the mic to the speakers, and an all analog recording experience by tracking to the Ampex MM1200 2″ tape machine and mixing to our Ampex 102. Not one to be left behind, Metrosonic also features 32 channels of 24bit 196k Pro Tools on Mac OSX.
Gear is important, but it’s the people here who make Metrosonic what it is. Pete Mignola is an Emmy award winning Engineer with over 25 years experience, and has taken much pride in passing on his experience as a technician, a talented composer and accomplished musician to the engineers and assistants here at our studio. He is happy to help artists with arrangements and production elements; knowing what it takes to inspire a great performance.
Amazing views of the Manhattan skyline along with a convenient location, great gear, experienced staff, and a 900 sq. ft live room; it’s clear why artists from The Black Lips to Moby, and Andrew Bird to The Damned Things and more have made Metrosonic Recording Studio NYC their choice.
