About The Recording Studio
Located in a secluded spot in Northampton, MA, SpiritHouse offers a perfect mix of country and city. We’re hidden away on 14 private acres, yet only 1 mile from downtown Northampton, home to over 95 restaurants and several great live venues including the Iron Horse Music Hall as well as The Pines and Calvin Theaters.
Northampton is perfectly situated only 1.5 hours from Boston and 3 hours from New York City.
SpiritHouse has a spacious, acoustically stunning control room and four isolation booths ranging in size with good site lines between. We have an extensive collection of gear including high end microphones from Telefunken, Neumann, Royer and many others, vintage recording equipment from Neve, Telefunken, API, Avalon, Urie and more.
SpiritHouse has a long list of keyboards including a beautiful Hammond B3 and several funky older Hammond organs, a Yamaha C3 grand piano, a 1956 blond Wurlitzer, a Fender Rhodes as well as many digital keyboard options.
We are running a Pro-Tools HD system with Apogee converters and as of August, 2009 we’re running version 8. We’re always adding new gear and updates to the room so this list isn’t always up to date.
When your not working in the studio, there’s a full modern kitchen and dining area, sleeping accommodations, an entertainment theater area, in-ground pool, hot tub, exercise room and many other amenities to help you relax. This studio is designed for comfort and creative flow.
