The Satellite has launched…

Satellite is a producer’s studio and a new additional location of Studio West. Offering full music production services by our in-house team (including resident producer Jeff Berkley), as well as affordable block rates and weekend lockouts, Satellite orbits Studio West as a discrete and artist-friendly safe haven. The control room, designed by Chuck Branch, who later built Studio A in Rancho Bernardo, hosts an otherworldly Custom Series 75 recording console with 32 channels of legendary Neve patented 1073 preamps. The newly constructed live room comfortably fits four to five musicians who are encouraged to take advantage of the studio’s robust collection of instruments and equipment. Paired with our formidable mic locker, album-making tones are readily available and in no small supply. 

SATELLITE

Located just minutes from Downtown San Diego in Kearny Mesa, Satellite is designed from the ground up to inspire creativity and effortlessly facilitate your production process. The live room, isolation booth, and acoustically pristine control room can be up and running as soon as you walk in the door. And our experienced in-house producers are ready to help bring your ideas to life in the comfort and privacy of this world-class studio.
