"Route of The Relaxed Recording Artist"

 

The Lantern Sound Recording Rig is a private historical farmhouse recording studio in a nature preserve, offering hourly/daily rates. Located in a 100-year old farmhouse, the facility takes up 8 rooms, 3 floors. There is a 32 input console, and a full compliment of backline/instrumets/gear, microphones, outboard preamps and processing.

We are known for being a great recording facility for music in the Americana, Roots, Folk, Singer-Songwriter, and Rock 'n' Roll genres - basically anything that involves great songwriting and ensemble peformances. Have a super-loud heavy metal band? We don't mind referring artists to places that are great for you!

Our top specialty is our ability to safely record music made by groups of people performing together at the same time, in the same space. That's THE best way to get the "magic take" that preserves the human element that is so important in recorded music, and with commercial recording studios going out of business, and people cramming their home recording setups into very small spaces, that's not so easy these days.

We can do that courtesy of a simple & clean signal path philosophy that spreads across three floors of various rooms, chambers and isolation closets, and we use them all. A core Apple Logic® recording DAW, paired up with a 32-input Allen & Heath console, is fed by a full variety of microphones and mic preamps, vintage drums/amps/instruments, and a 1929 Hazelton Brothers (NYC) baby grand piano. Headphone mixes, sculpted in the analog world on the mixing console, go through the entire house.

Quick setups, nice comforts, pleasant people, and fantastic vibes are our trademarks. The LSRR is located less than five minutes from the Hampton Jitney, the Long Island Railroad, and the Long Island Expressway in the Eastern Pine Barrens of LI, NY.

It's a super-comfortable secret clubhouse in the woods where music is made, and we think you'll like it here.
