Art City Sound uses API, Focusrite and Miktek Preamps, RME and Focusrite Converters, and microphones from AKG, Audix, Audio Technica, Miktek, Shure, Royer, and many others. It employs the latest Presonus Studio One DAW software, and has Omnisphere 2, Waves Horizon, and Native Instruments Komplete Ultimate software packages.
We record anything that can make sound, but we specialize in acoustic drums. The studio kit is a DW Performance-series maple with Sabian AAX, Zildjian A Custom, and Paiste Twenty cymbals, and is treated like the belle of the ball. Always properly tuned, mic'ed up, and ready to go.
In a nutshell, everything related to studio-recorded audio. This includes Tracking, Editing, Mixing, Mastering, Production, Instrumentation, Orchestration, and Arrangement. We have the space and capability to record all instruments, and excel in recording acoustic drum kits.
We have three tracking rooms set up to capture music. One live room, one dry room, and a dedicated vocal booth. All three are purpose-built for audio recording from the ground up.
World-class software tools, such as Presonus Studio One are used to minimize editing time, and top-of-the-line plugins, such as Waves and Native Instruments are used to get the mix sounding just right for any genre.
Art City Sound's control room is built specifically for mixing and mastering in mind, and with Presonus Studio Mastering Suite software, we will bring your mixes up to "Radio Ready" quickly and efficiently.

Hi. My name is Jason. I built Art City Sound from the ground up because, unlike most adults who grow out of music, the older I get, the more poignantly I feel it inside me.
I feel rhythm all around me, in just about everything, and as such, it was inevitable that I'd pick up a drumstick somewhere along the journey. I've been playing drums for more than 20 years,
and refuse to stop, no matter what my neighbors say.
Music has always been there, so I decided to embrace it to see what would happen.
Art City Sound is what happened.
Jason has been drumming since 1987 and has given up trying to stop. He also has 15 years of experience engineering audio, and can't get enough.
A record to some is not a record to all, but it all really comes down to how that word is actually defined...
Is it wise to expect your engineer to create all the beauty in your project? As good as we are at Art City Sound, we think there may be a better solution.
In 2015, the studio underwent some major updates. It's about time we updated the website to the same degree we've updated the studio.
After going to a Walk Off The Earth Concert, I started doubting certain studio production methods...
At Art City Sound, we obviously have a few opinions on audio gear, so if you want to know what headphones not to buy, come on in.
Jason is always interested in hearing about your latest project and how he can help. Feel free to contact him any way you feel comfortable.
