—  RECORDING & AUDIO  —

 

Acme Hall Studios is a professional mixing, production, and recording facility. The recording studio was designed by Rich Bennett (Acme's Recording & Mixing Engineer) and Joe Salvatto (Founder of Salvatto Sound) with the intention of providing a high-end work environment to projects of all needs. Acme’s aesthetic — from learning to recording — focuses on quality. We do not adhere to a particular genre or dogmatic approach. All sounds are welcome and encouraged.

Acme’s location makes it the perfect place to work on anything from quick turnaround overdubs to long-term production and mixing projects. Since Acme also serves as a teaching space, we have on faculty some of the best working musicians in the city. Interested recording clients can have access to expert musicians already familiar with the space and the workflow.

Do you rent out the studio for rehearsal space?
No. We are strictly a recording and lesson studio. We do not rent out our rooms for practice and rehearsal space.

Do you record student demos for auditions or school applications?
Yes. We work with singers and instrumentalists on recordings for audition submissions as well as high school, college, and conservatory admissions. Please email rich@acmehallstudios.com or call 929-265-ACME to discuss your particular project and deadline.
