Swift Road Studios High fidelity artistry in engineering
(20)

Swift Road Studios is a full service recording and production studio in the north greater Chicagoland area. We do everything from demo production through full scale album production, including (but not limited to) writing, recording, editing, mixing, mastering, video production, and artist development. We take great pride in our work and combine decades of diverse experience with some of the best tools the industry has to offer, both vintage and modern. We also want to thank every single person that has been a part of Swift Road Studios. It's because of you that we see the dream manifest once again!

We had a wonderful time working on Cheyenne Singer’s new EP the past couple nights. Our friend Jack Minogue laid down some absolutely stunning guitar tracks on this record through this stunning rig. His Fender Showman sounded SO gorgeous through our 2x12 Greenback cabinet by Atlas Cabinets, which we transformed into a partial back with some fastener wizardry.

Last nights drum session with Out The Car Window had Ludwig Drums written all over it!

We assembled a kit from our vintage Ludwig set, including the 14"x24" kick, 11"x12" tom tom, and 16"x16" floor tom, along with our gorgeous 6.5"x14" Black Beauty brass snare.

The sound was massive, and percussionist Griffin Taylor's performance was master level.

We did some fun things at Swift Road Studios

Peters Wolverine 50W | AM stands for "amp maintenance" when we decide its time to fix things at 7AM. It seems the bias drifted a bit high for the JJ's KT77's we have loaded in our Peters Wolverine. Time to dial it back and test..

Schecter Stiletto Studio 6 | This bass has come a long way from stock with a full set of electronics upgrades. They include a set of EMG 45/45TW pickups, push/pull master volume, EMG Active Balance Control, 3-band EMG EQ, and all of the custom wiring in between to run it all.

The result is an entirely new sounding bass with a library of tones in a 5-knob configuration. This was, without a doubt, the most challenging wiring project I have completed to date, combining three different schematics and multiple pinouts to follow signal flow. I can't wait to see what my clients bring me next!

We are so excited to be recording lead and solo guitars for Austaras this weekend. The resulting guitar tones are absolutely incredible, along with every other phase of the recording process to date.
