The dream is
Sonart Recording Studio is open for business.
many years, my dream has been to offer musicians, engineers and producers a studio with
state of the art equipment in an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable environment.
Sonart is the realization of that dream. Artists working at Sonart find themselves
in a setting that encourages the achievement of their highest goals.
Located in Mt. Tremper, New York - 11 miles west of Woodstock - Sonart is in one of the
most beautiful rural areas in the Northeast, and its less than three hours from midtown
Manhattan. The area is home to a vast arts community that includes innumerable
musicians - from well-known concert performers to top New York session players.
Whether you're interested in performing live in the studio with a full ensemble, or
building track by track tapestries of sound with over-dubbing, whether you prefer digital
or analog decks, whether you want to run instruments direct to the board or capture the
warm, rich natural ambience of Sonart's various and acoustically flexible rooms ...
whatever your needs, Sonart stands ready to work with you and for you.
We've already gotten raves from musicians for our Private Q
monitor system, that lets each musician control their own headphone mix. ProTools is available for the versatility of computer hard disc
multitrack recording and editing. And we shouldn't forget to mention the
"creature comforts" that help keep you playing, not just working, during your
sessions at Sonart. You can cook a meal or have a snack in Sonart's fully equipped
kitchen, or step out on the deck to catch a few moments of peaceful relaxation between
takes. For a longer break, take a stroll or lounge in the Japanese garden - or walk
cross the road and check out the famous Esopus creek. Its the total environment and
setting that makes long sessions far more enjoyable.
Please cruise around and check out the site. There are photos, equipment lists, etc.
For further information, please get in touch - email or telephone. Thanks for
your interest. Looking forward to hearing from you.
