About Us

We now have ORANGE amplification for guitars and a brand new Universal Audio Mic Pre!! The LAB is a recording studio in Albuquerque, conveniently located near the corner of Lomas Blvd. NE and San Mateo Blvd. NE. We're equipped to record bands, singer/songwriters, etc... and if you've already recorded tracks and need a mixing facility, bring the files in from your recordings to have them professionally mixed! We're proud to offer the following:

** Hybrid digital/analog set-up:
> DIGITAL - Logic, Reason, Focusrite Saffire Pro40 and OctoPre MKII interfaces linked for 16 ins

** LARGE Live room with external isolation box for amps

** Nice lounge area for hanging out... coffee maker, assorted teas, bottled water and various other cold drinks

** A workstation equipped with a Mac Pro (surf the web, post on FaceBook, get a little paperwork done)

** Art gallery - we're featuring the work of a local artist every other month; all pieces will be for sale (100% of proceeds go to the artist)

The concept behind The LAB is simple; provide a warm, inviting atmosphere to create & mix world-class recordings, helmed by a producer/engineer with over 20 years experience (recently located here from NYC) and an exceptional assistant engineer at AFFORDABLE PRICES. Book time in our studio for the LOW price of $30/hour. Block out an 8 hour session for a flat rate of $200. The only additional costs are if you plan to record on tape (1/2" reels are about $80 [we have 2 brand new reels of 1/2" tape in stock; you can purchase the pair for $100] and 1/4" tape is approx. $15). We're all living in the same economic slump and this is our opportunity to give back to the music community-at-large. We accept cash, checks (must clear before recording starts) and Paypal. Hourly rates include applicable sales tax. Either email info(AT) or call 917-859-2993 to set up a meeting and see the facilities. We look forward to working with you!!!

Clients include Hoverbourd, Young Lungs, Todd & The Fox, Good Green, Lindy Vision, Cloud Lantern, Cast In Your Shadow, King Bentley, JayDee Kennedy, Cyclonus, RX, The Zerbe Strut Band & Mrs. New Mexico International.
