godmode studios || atwater village la

two idiot-proof production rooms designed to help artists start and finish records

professionally designed acoustics, inspired instrument choices, quality signal processing

daily, weekly, monthly lockouts available. contact: studios at godmodemusic dot com

philosophy

we designed our rooms for artists and producers who want to get to work, not engineers and internet gear-heads who want to talk to you about the merits of atomic word clocks. we curated instruments that will inspire you, not confound you. top-notch microphones, summing options, channel strips, and audio interfaces in both rooms mean you won't have to recut vocals. quality room acoustics and monitoring mean you'll get your mix pretty damn close too. there's enough space to track horns, there are enough gobos to have the whole band playing at once. and you'll have access to the godmode house engineer, who's exceptionally polite and patient (maybe too much so). 

plug & play interfaces + high-quality monitoring + speakers

we use uad apollo 8p and apogee symphony i/o interfaces, which we've already routed for vocal tracking, no hassle monitoring, and easy outboard patching. to speed things up for yourself, download the latest uad and apollo drivers before you come through.

great sounding instruments you'll actually want to use

our wurlitzer, fender stratocaster 62 reissue, fender jag-stang bass, ayotte drum kit, ludwig black beauty snare, ayotte custom snare, roland jc40 amp, 70s 15" zildjian hats, and human hands for gang claps are all available upon request.

class a microphones and preamps for perfect vox + more

we have a neumann m149 tube and mojave ma-300 tube pre-routed into rupert neve portico ii and api/1176/opto chains for record-ready vocals, and plenty of other mic and pre options for everything else you'll want to track.

make things weird with boutique synthesizers

our drum machine + synth + fx collection includes kit from moog, dave smith instruments, MFB, intellijel, makenoise, mutable instruments, delta labs, etc, all easily routed and clocked with innerclock sync-gen midi clocking to eliminate annoying midi jitter.
