Woodshed Recording was designed by renowned architect Akai Yang to be first and foremost a creative environment that takes full advantage of the inspiring ocean views and breezes. Boutique instruments and the finest equipment available complete the recording experience. The entire property is powered by a 99 solar panel 25kw system on the roof of the main residence. Hence all recordings from the Woodshed are 100% carbon neutral.
All of the interior walls in the main room can either stay tucked away or moved into a variety of configurations. The SSL console and outboard gear are mounted in custom mahogany furniture on wheels so that they can easily be located anywhere in the room.
Below the ocean view dining deck is the machine room and two more isolation booths that house the studio’s Leslie and Bogner speaker cabinets. The office, sleeping loft, and tile shower are all wired into the recording rig.
All of this means there are at least a dozen different recording configurations possible. Up to 30 players can be accommodated in the main room. Separate production rooms can also be created for simultaneous multitasking.
