Music Rehearsal

ROOM RENTALS

The Rehearsal Rooms at Stage One have been touted as Southern California’s finest by both touring and local acts alike. Featuring 3,000 Watts of power and 16 channel mixing boards, our rooms offer ample power, channels, and space for just about any band. Since the day the studio opened for business, people have been coming from far and wide to use our rooms; often times even when they have other options closer to home.

Unlike most other rehearsal facilities our rooms are air conditioned, clean (we disinfect our rooms and equipment between every rehearsal), safe, and secure. Our focus is on customer service; we won’t give you attitude or treat you like you’re wasting our time. We’ve all been to those other places – you know what we’re talking about!

All of our rehearsal rooms are air conditioned and all room rentals include 2 mics, stands and cables.

Our green screen cyclorama room does not come with lighting, which translates to major savings for you – only $50/hr! Why would we do this?

RECORDING STUDIO

Stage One’s world class recording studio is a state-of-the-art “hybrid” facility that has been designed to accommodate every aspect of analog and digital audio and video production. Our ACOUSTICALLY SHAPABLE tracking room is truly isolated from our control room, allowing for pristine recording conditions unrivaled by most other recording facilities. Our recording engineers, sound designers, and videographers have decades of experience in music production, business training productions, audio books, sound effects, and film voice-overs.

Separating the Stage One tracking room and control room is a tri-wall system featuring tri-paned window paneling. The perfection of the acoustic isolation achieved by this system is second only to the impressiveness of the massive windows between the rooms – also completely sound tight! These MASSIVE pieces of acoustic glass are ultra-clear for perfect visual communication while recording. Whether recording voice-overs to our 13′ video projection from one of our three isolation booths, or tracking vocals while needing to keep eye contact with your band, you will never encounter line-of-sight issues at Stage One.

Our acoustically shapable recording/tracking room features wall fronted by three-sided, rotatable panels; custom designed and built specifically for Stage One’s recording studio. Each side offers a different acoustic feature: absorption, reflection, and diffusion. In addition, suspended from our ceiling are two-sided panels featuring sound reflective and absorbant sides. Each panel of both the walls and ceiling can be separately adjusted to create any desired acoustic environment desired.

To explain what we mean by a “hybrid” recording studio, one must have a basic understanding of the development of recording technology. Simply put, the recording industry has undergone huge technological advancements over the past century. The past three decades have seen a huge shift from analog equipment to digital equipment. Though digital recording “plug-ins” are capable of emulating their analog counterparts to the point of being nearly identical, many professionals and audiophiles still prefer the “real deal”. That is why here at Stage One we still offer analog recording in the form of 2″ and 1/2″ tape, as well as the most current, hi resolution digital formats. In addition, we have vintage analog preamps and compressors to satisfy even the most sophisticated ear. What’s more, if you’re looking to record with a piece of gear that we don’t have, due to our huge network of recording professionals, we can get it!
