Pre-Production / Tracking / Editing 

Area 67 Recording Studio can help with all steps of the Pre-Production and recording process. Regardless of your experience level, genre, or end goals, Mike Villegas has the experience to help guide you the process.

We will always begin by having a meeting with you to get to know exactly what your goals are and how you want your recordings to sound.  This is the most important step as our number one priority is to help you get your specific vision achieved.

We would then schedule a time to begin the recording process. We have equipment at our studio that is free to use, and an assortment of gear available for rental.  You're also obviously more than welcome to bring your own instruments, amps, drums, ect.  We would get the studio set up in the best way to capture the sounds that you are looking for.  Everything involving the pre-production set up (mic placements, levels, etc.) are completely taken care of for you by our in house engineers. 

From there all you need to do is play the music you've been wanting to hear on a recording and let us take care of the rest! We consult with you all along the way to make sure things are sounding as you've been envisioning. 

Please feel free to schedule a tour of a facility, and have a meeting with Mike to see how Area 67 Recording Studio can get your music heard!
