Seaside Recording is a soundproof and architect designed recording studio. The studio consists of a large control room, a drum room, and an additional isolation room for vocalists or amplifiers. The three rooms are visually connected by two layers of thick soundproof glass. Silent Central Air Conditioning lets you work in quiet comfort. All floors are free floating to eliminate vibration transfer through the walls. The Maui ocean front location with spectacular views is also a nice touch.
Our recording format is based on a Mac pro 2.66 Ghz quad core. Software includes MOTU Digital Performer 8.0, Waves Platinum Bundle, and Bias Peak 7 and Pro Tools 12. These software packages along with the Mackie Digital 8 Bus automated console with new HUI control surface are a powerful and efficient combination.
