RECORDING • MIXING • LIVE SOUND • FILM
As experts in the audio services industry, our goal is to achieve the sound you’re looking for.
Open and versatile, the live room is a 1,000 sq ft acoustically-tuned space. The sound of the room is largely attributed to the custom wooden slat wall, and acoustic treatment on the ceiling. The design of the live room produces different tonal characteristics in specific areas, allowing for more control, to better record a variety of instruments and sounds. For more information on our wooden slat wall, please see our blog: The Wooden Slat Wall: Backdrop for Your Next Project
The isolated and tuned control room looks into the live room and vocal booth keeping everyone connected. Making sure the sound is true is very important, but so is your comfort. The control room features: A/C and heater control, a leather couch, and a large Sony TV screen.
As projects often require different services, we start by finding out what you need. From music to film, our workflow is typically: pre-production, recording, editing, mixing, and then mastering. We can help you produce your project from start to finish, but also provide our services “a-la-carte.” Contact us and ask if we would be a good fit for your project.
I recorded 3 songs at Studio 637 for Jake Nowels (son of Brad Nowels of Sublime) a few weeks ago. I enjoyed the experience very much. Everything worked perfectly. Great gear and mics and the staff there is totally on point. Extremely helpful. Most importantly, the songs came out great. Plus the beach vibe is very inspirational. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks Kevin and the whole staff at Studio 637.

Audio production at Studio 637 starts in either our 1,000 sq ft, acoustically-tuned live-room, or in our custom vocal booth. It is recorded using our Avid C|24 Digital Control Surface, through UAD Apollo interfaces, into Pro Tools 12, which is complimented by 100’s of pro-level plug-ins from Waves Audio, Universal Audio and many more. Signal is monitored through either:
- Custom Mains made by Dub Electronics Inc. Capable of producing frequencies from 18Hz-40kHz by using a 4-way system comprised of 4x 15” speakers for lows, 4x 12” speakers for mids, and a horn dedicated to the highs with an added harmonic driver. These concert level monitors are an experience whether you are mixing your latest record or enjoying some of your favorite tunes (bass heavy tunes preferred).
