Serving both Grammy-winning clients and indie artists alike, Mirrortone is a recording studio and multi-service music production studio located in the heart of Manhattan, two blocks from Penn Station.
Our producer engineers have over 20 years of combined recording experience and have the highest level of proficiency in Pro Tools. In fact, some of our producers have worked directly for Avid as third-party software developers, helping make the plugins that all music engineers and producers rely on.
Perhaps one of the most sought out services from Mirrortone Studios is audio mixing. Using top-notch gear, years of know-how, and an intimate understanding of Pro Tools, we offer time-tested and industry approved broadcast quality mixes. If it wasn't enough to view our client list, our music has been used on Television, Radio, and Film, including MTV.
One of the most important, yet least understood, steps in the music production process is mastering. This involves assembling final mixes into the proper order, adjusting volume levels of each segment and using a variety of technical processes (EQ, compression, limiting, etc.) to polish the final mixes. When done professionally, mastering optimizes the sonic quality of the final track or album. Mirrortone has a track record or excellence in the subtle art of mastering. Whether it be piecing together that magnum opus of a record or putting the glitter on that hit-single, Mirrortone's music mastering is sure to take your final mix to that professional level you just can't seem to get.
You've written your masterpiece, now you need to make that composition come to life in a recording. Mirrortone can take your piece from sheet music or a lick on your guitar to the final mastered recording. Using the most qualified performers, studios, and engineers that fit your budget, you are sure to walk away with an industry standard, artistic recording. Regardless of whether you are an amateur or professional songwriter, composer, or full band, your recordings must speak for themselves. Don't settle for home recordings, or poorly mixed demos. Entrust your music to one of New York City's and the music industry's best kept secrets, and walk away with a professionally produced and mixed product.
Rocking a vintage Trident 65 Recording Console, one of the best vintage boards you will find in a Manhattan recording studio, our control room is setup for comfortable mixing, recording, and producing.
Stocked with a Yamaha U1 piano, Pearl Studio Drum Kit, a top-notch mic locker, collection of premium amplifiers, our live room is large enough to record a 6 piece ensemble and intimate enough to cut vocals.
We are not just engineers and producers, we are also musicians. When we are not recording other musicians we are playing and recording our own music. With a great collection of instruments we produce tracks for our artists as well as television, film, and commercials. Details
Our studio is built around having the best of both worlds, analog and digital. If there is a plugin for that, we have it. But sometimes we like to get on the floor and turn some dials on our rack gear.
Perhaps one of the main reasons people love our recordings is because we use some of the best preamps ever created, the Trident 65 rocks 32 of these vintage warm preamps.
Our isolated vocal booth is custom finished with repurposed wood to get the warmest vocals we can. Unlike most studios, our iso booth is large enough for more than just one person, and there are site lines into all other rooms of the studio.
Two of our favorite instruments to record in one picture. Come record on our Yamaha U1 piano, heralded as one of the best pop and jazz pianos ever created, and found on records by Cold Play, Alicia Keys, and Chick Corea. Our drum kit is a Pearl Studio edition with fresh heads, a DW snare, and an array of cymbal options.
