Nathan Barr's Bandrika Studio has been nominated for the 34th NAMM TEC Award in the Studio Design Category! Nathan is a composer known for his work on True Blood, The Americans, Flatliners and many more. The new facility started out as a two story, 10,000 SF building. About ½ of the 2nd floor was removed to produce a full height stage of 23 feet. The stage will easily accommodate 50 players and has a very unique feature of also incorporating the original Fox theater organ. It has been completely refurbished and sounds spectacular in its new home. The space also has a 510 SF control room with B&W 802D3 monitors. There’s lots of common areas including a great kitchen and offices to complete the space with a lounge overlooking the stage. Nate's first project for the studio is Amblin's The House with a Clock in It's Walls.  See Bandrika project page for complete details




Designed by Kaufman & Associates for Beto Hale, Los Olivos Recording Studios is a newly opened facility based out of the San Fernando Valley, CA. Built from the ground up, it is a 2000 square foot studio featuring a live room with a 20 foot ceiling, two large isolation rooms, and a spacious control room equipped with a Pro Tools HDX system and Avid S6. The studio features a wide array of mic pres and vintage microphones, guitars, amps, drums, and a 6”2” Steinway model A piano. The facility has been designed to exceed NC15 noise specs, and the live room, with an 725ms RT60, produces a beautifully warm, yet detailed sound field. 3PMC IB1S-AIII reference monitors, a pair of twotwo8 monitors for surround, and a twotwo sub2 active subwoofer provide crystal clear 5.1 monitoring. NikiTek performed the integration for the facility.
