Mystic Valley Recording Studio is Boston's boutique analog recording studio, located just north of the city, in an unassuming house in Medford, Ma. With purpose-built, soundproof, sound-treated rooms and a focus on great sounding gear, it is one of just a handful of 100% analog recording studios in the world.
Much of the gear here is either a restored classic vintage piece, or modeled after one. From microphones to monitors and everything in-between, virtually everything in the studio has been modified and brought up to audiophile standards. Please check out the gear-list to see some of the extensive restorations and modifications done on these pieces. Bands looking for a “retro” experience will be quite happy here, while modern bands simply looking for great sound should be equally satisfied. I strive to maintain a clean, creative environment, where great sound is paramount, at a price that anyone can afford.
*If you’ve never worked with tape before, you might be surprised at how flexible tracking to tape can be. I can track a full band “live”, or you can lay down each instrument separately as overdubs… whatever makes sense. For those that don’t know, punching-in/out is indeed possible on tape, and we can even splice two or more separate performances together.
