“This is so much better than recording in a big corporate studio.”
— Grammy-Winning Singer Nathan Gunn on Recording at Reach
Here’s a tour of Reach Studios’ facilities, designed and owned by a recording artist after years of recording in studios designed and run by engineers. Contact for an on-site tour.
Control & Composing Room
A beautiful workspace with Genelec speakers; sound treatment to hear and mix precisely; an 88-key weighted master keyboard controller; a vocal iso booth; and software like Pro Tools, Logic, Live and Sibelius. A window streams natural light over a custom drop-down worktable and space for a band to sit and listen. Wired to five rooms with different acoustical properties, it has a double studio glass window for direct visibility to the main…
Recording & Rehearsing Room
Soundproofed and treated for pristine recording without reverberation, it’s wired with 16 inputs and headphone jacks to hear any other room and fitted with a Yamaha digital piano. It’s an inspiring place to record and a peaceful place to rehearse. The window gives direct visibility to your Control Room Producer and Engineer. A flatscreen with an Apple TV displays lyrics, videos, teaching materials, or mirrors the Control Room computer screen.
Piano & Choir Room
A gorgeous acoustic space with hardwood flooring and 22-foot ceilings features a grand piano and space for bass and more. Reach has recorded a 36-voice choir in this room over a recording of the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s wired to the Control Room downstairs with inputs and headphone jacks to hear and talk to other rooms.
Field Of Dreams
An alternative reverberant space for acoustic drums, vocals, or more, this fun room is wired with 16 inputs and headphone jacks to hear other rooms. It’s also a professional-grade indoor turf field with rubber infill and a place to relax playing soccer, dodgeball or just tossing the football between takes. And it’s the only indoor field in Colorado with a disco ball.
Control Room Closet
This top-secret dungeon stores Reach’s gear, but it’s also wired with 2 inputs and auxiliary lines for double duty as an iso room to record guitar amps and other eclectic needs. All monsters in the Closet are supersonic in nature and of your own creation.
Fun & Fitness Space
Sometimes what we do between takes matters just as much. This fully functional cardio and strength training area has rubber flooring, free weights, medicine balls, weighted bars, pull-up bars, fitness bands, slides, yoga mats, blocks, push-up handles, a recumbent exercise bike, a step machine, a dual basketball hoop game, darts, and a giant 50″ TV with broadcast, DVD and Apple TV. A great place to blow off steam between takes.
A private, meticulously clean restroom on the Studio Floor is exclusive to Reach Studios clients to make sure your whole day is elegant and comfortable.
