prole arts studio

located in the spacious garden apartment of our home, prole arts features the comforts of home combined with a professional studio environment, at what we like to think of as pretty darned reasonable rates (typically $300/day $30/hour). Ideal for overdubs and mixdown projects, basic tracks are typically done at any number of regional studios (see links page) and finished up here. However, tracking can be accomplished in a very sonically effective (if ad hoc) manner as well! Please get in touch about your project for a full range of options...

the new studio features a 9'x28' control/live room with a smaller 8'x14' live room along with a full bathroom and kitchen.
