Maui Recording Studio
Welcome to Grace Recording Studio. Located in beautiful Maui, Hawaii, renowned for it’s 33 miles of white sand beaches. Great surfing, snorkeling, diving, Hump Back whales and sunsets that will take your breath away. This world class recording and mastering studio is equipped with the top analog and digital gear. Located on 1/2 acre with lush organic gardens and fruit trees, surrounded completely by a rock wall and gated for security and privacy. Looking out from the studio we enjoy an incredible ocean view overlooking the neighboring islands of Lanai and Kahoolawe, and to the west the awe inspiring West Maui Mountains.
The recording studio and entire facility uses photovoltaic solar panels, harnessing the sun’s energy to generate 100% of it’s own electricity. We are an eco friendly studio that cares about our environment. The studio is equipped with an Equi=Tech Balanced Power System. AC power is the main source and also the primary cause of all the hums and buzzes we have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. Having the Equi=Tech Balanced Power System enables us to keep the lowest noise floor possible.
The studio was designed by world class designer Steven Klein of Sound Control Room, Inc. The control room has a floating floor which is 9 1/2 inches thick, wrapped in acoustical vinyl and special sound materials to isolate it. The walls and ceiling using sound absorbing materials are also 9 1/2 inches thick. The ISO room has a floating floor which isolates it from the control room and the deck outside, blocking out any external noise. We installed a new attack wall and bass traps which were made by Art Noxon of Acoustical Science Corporation then recapped the entire console, thus creating a neutral environment for listening and recording audio tracks.
At Grace Recording Studio we have a large format console running Radar V with 48 channels of S-Nyquist converters at 24/192khs I/O. These are some of the most incredible sounding converters we have ever heard. We also use these converters with 48 channels of Pro Tools HDX.The studio has tons of great vintage analog gear including Neve 1073 preamps plus many vintage and new microphones to choose from. The live room is 25×30 feet with a video feed to the control room. The ISO room as well as the live room have a viewing monitor to make your punch in and outs precise. We have a beautiful set of Ludwig maple drums and lots of amps and keyboards to choose from.
