After being closed to the public March through June, we're finally safely re-opened.
We set up our main iso booth (12x16') as a parallel control room where artists can work isolated without masks and enjoy a mirrored feed of both the sound and video from the main control room along with an always-on talkback.
Studio B is also available for fully isolated sessions for artists who don't need a staff engineer. Call/email for info.
"Icarus Falls" Certified Gold!
RCA/Sony recording artist and pop sensation Zayn Malik (formerly of One Direction) wrote and performed tracks for 5 songs off his epic 27 song sophomore release "Icarus Falls" at Hopetown in the fall of 2017.
These songs included the singles Let Me and The Entertainer.
We are honored to have hosted Zayn and provided a creative space for this great album to grow.
Icarus also just reached 800 million streams on Spotify!
We're thrilled with this big change to our studio A control room. The new desk by Zaor Studio Furniture improves acoustics and workflow ergonomics. It also frees up even more space in our already large main control room.
Inspired by the desk design we've expanded our Lynx Aurora(N) converter to 32 channels and installed all new custom cables and patchbays from Redco Audio. We're on wait for a matching sidecar desk for the bays from Zaor Furniture as well.
