Stone Recording offers artists a creative environment for many phases of the recording process, delivering professional and affordable results across a wide-array of genres. With a 10' x 12' production suite, ISO booth and artist's lounge, the studio is an ideal tracking, overdub, and mixing facility. For larger tracking sessions, Stone Recording has complete access to an adjoining 425 square foot live room with a full back line.

The studio is outfitted with a vintage Neve 54 series console, Pro Tools 9 PCI system using a Lynx Aurora 8, a collection of world-class microphones, outboard gear, and instruments. Stone Recording also has longstanding relationships with some of the city's finest session musicians and can arrange for their services upon request.

Services

Studio B offers clients a premier overdub, programming and production facility centered around a vintage Neve 54 Series console, meticulously maintained and upgraded to feature direct outs on all channels by Matt Marinelli of Coral Sound. We have complete access to a wide array of world-class microphones, instruments and outboard gear as well as a DAW stocked with various soft synths and instrument patches. Through Studio A we can also offer our clients a larger tracking facility to record drums, full bands and ensembles live.

Gian Stone has worked with artists such as The Jezebels, Greg Camp (Smash Mouth), Khaya Cohen (X-Factor), Dia Frampton, LP, Antar Goodwin (Lauryn Hill, Sting), That Work, Pam Sheyne, Melody Noel and Jesse Marco as well as producers including Ben Rice (The Mooney Suzuki, Daughter), Craig Dreyer (Dispatch) and Gordon Grody (Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys.) He is adept at producing a wide range of genres, and brings a dedicated approach to his projects.

Our studio is also fantastic for mixing, as our vintage Neve console and outboard equipment integrates seamlessly via Lynx converters with our Pro Tools rig, to provide clients with a top of the line hybrid setup in an acoustically tuned environment. We mix all styles of music and are expert in both vocal and drum editing. For artists outside of the New York City area, we offer remote mixing services.

Whether you are looking for custom compositions for film, television, commercial use, web-based marketing or for individual artists, our team of songwriters can develop compositions for your project or co-write with you. Our songwriters' work has been heard on various media outlets, from TV to radio. As with our mixing, if you are outside the New York City area, we offer remote writing sessions via Skype.
