STUDIO A

From Kanye West to Eminem, Studio A has produced some of the most celebrated  albums in Hip Hop music history. The control room - designed by The Studio Bau:Ton team - offers views of the marina as well as unparalleled acoustics. This iconic studio comes with a private artists lounge and a spacious isolation booth, complete with a selection of vintage synthesizers.

Kanye West recorded the albums 808’s & Heartbreak, and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in this studio. Since then, many names in music royalty have left their mark here, including but not limited to Rihanna, Eminem, Common, Beyonce and Frank Ocean. 

With 112 channels, Studio A features the largest SSL 9000J Console in the world. The control room is equipped with Genelec 1038A, 1031A, NS10 and TAD 5.1 house monitors with Pro Tools Ultimate. Studer 827 24 track & 820 1/2” 2 track Analog recorders are available on request.
