Gear

After you have acoustically superior, great sounding rooms with unique, soothing and creative interior design, you need world class production equipment. We chose one of the top (and also very hip) pro audio & video solutions providers in the world: Tekserve in New York, to help us with the gear workflow design and selection.

California Road Studios does not use interns to do your project. You get a choice of our staff engineers, the right person to fit your project and budget (or you may use your own engineer or producer depending on the package you select). Our talented people are formally educated, many have worked on award winning projects and they have years of real world pro experience. And because we have over 25 years of international connections in the music, film, broadcast, publishing and manufacturing worlds we also offer our Grammy/Billboard-charting ENGINEER/PRODUCER Packages allowing you once in a lifetime opportunities to work with select world class talent, depending on the scope of your project and budget, and producer/engineer availability.
