Big Name currently has two soundproofed and acoustically treated live rooms as well as a separated control room.

Our building also features a workshop with tools for fixing equipment.

I produce with Pro Tools and a large selection of mics and preamps. Big Name also offers the ability to record on a very unique 8 track reel to reel tape machine, the Tascam 388.

As a recording artist at Big Name, a large number of instruments, amps, and effects are at your disposal.
