Recording studio Miami: Where is Miami’s Fish Tank recording studio located?

  Where is the studio located?   We are located basically in Central Miami right off of Bird Road and 74th Avenue which is very close to Palmetto. It's really dead center. We have everything close by, hotels. The airport is a 10 minute drive or less. Hotels all over the place, restaurants, all types of shops. It's a great location.

Choosing a Recording Studio Miami, Fl

Miami, fl has an abundance of [intlink id=”7″ type=”page”]recording studios[/intlink]. With the Latin, EDM, and enormous hip hop market, and as a destination for national and international acts, there is no wondering why! Getting the most out of a recording studio means knowing exactly what you need, and what is available. Are you tracking vocals only? You are likely not in need of an enormous SSL mixing room that books at $1000/day or more. Are you recording a big band or group with 8 or more performing at the same time? You may need one of Miami's larger live rooms with facilities that can accommodate. Today more than ever, major label recordings are being made, and albums are being mixed by smaller facilities that have two critical pieces working for them: incredibly well trained, vetted recording engineers, an accurate studio environment, and the might of high end analog and digital recording equipment. Aside from being a recording and mixing engineer with over a decade of Major Label recording experience, we own a retail company that sells the bleeding edge equipment that recording studios are using today. Not only are we fully informed on what the latest and greatest equipment being used, we actually own most of it. Software plugins like Waves, Universal Audio, McDSP, Sonnox can cost recording studios tens of thousands of dollars. We have all of this at our clients disposal, as authorized dealers for these brands. The same too can be said for the latest Avid HDX […]

Recording studio Miami: Why Josh started working in the music industry

  Tell me about why you started working in the music industry.   Oh, wow. That's a great question. Sometimes I think I'm paying the price for making that decision, but I think it was a good one. I was studying economics at Colgate University. In my senior year, I dropped out and decided that I wanted to get into engineering and recording albums. I was doing it with a laptop out of my dorm room, and I had taken a couple course in recording, and I was a keyboard player in a band that would tour the frat circuit all over the north east. I had always been fascinated by the recorded art form, the recording arts; that medium just seemed incredible to me because it was like you could really capture … It was like lightening in a bottle. You were really able to put together something that just kept on giving. I was always amazed by the fact that I could play a song over, and over, and over and still get that feeling. I love what does. I think it really connects people. I think, more than anything else, that's why I've stayed in the business. It's just I like being connected to people in that way.   I'm a musician also. Let's see. I got out of school. I graduated, pretty close to the top of my class at full sale, and won a couple competitions there. They had these mix competitions where they'd get […]

Mixing at the NEW Fish Tank – Recording Studio Miami FL!

CURRENT MOOD: Peoplewatch. Mixing engineer Paul Garcia working on final mixes for the Peoplewatch record 'Sideways,' which will be released on March 26th, 2016. Paul is using the UA 1176 Classic Limiting Amplifier Plug-ins in a serial chain. One with a slow release and another with a fast release. Depending on the source, either the fast or slow release 1176 is being used first in the chain. Before compressing the instrument bus, Paul sets a UA SSL E-Channel Strip. The "equaliserselect" button is a great way to get a different character out of the EQ without interrupting workflow. The onboard compressor on the E-Channel sounds great on rock guitars when the Ratio is set to 1, Threshold is set to -20, and the Release is set to .1. Come and create at our recording studio miami !
