Sound Design Music Studio

Sound Design Music Studio A premier music recording studio in Lancaster , Pa

Operating as usual


The studio is closed due to the Covid 19 pandemic until further notice. There are no plans to open until sometime in 2021.


Ok, I just got the "everything bundle" from Slate Digital. Spent the day instantiating these awesome plugins in a number of current studio projects. Wow, they are everything I expected and more. If I could afford it I'd buy the Virtual Mic bundle. Everything this company makes reflects the future of recording technology. It's a great time to be alive and witness this transformation.


Today marks another day of significant upgrades to the studio.

Here's a brief overview.

Kawai VPC virtual piano controller - considered by many to be the best piano action available.

Ravenscroft 275 Virtual Piano. An meticulously detailed recording of the $275,000 Ravenscroft 9' grand piano serial #4.

Another pair of ADAM studio monitors. This set for the Piano workstation. Love the ADAM sound.

Spectrasonics Keyscape. An extroardinary collection of collector keyboards in the world. 10 years in the making.

Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 upgrade. Omnisphere is annually voted the best synth software instrument on the market.

All 5 of these amazing products are focused on raising the level of the already high quality piano workstation to new heights.

I'm sure you can tell that I'm quite excited about these additions to the studio.

Lots of updates to my studio to post here over the next few days


I am constantly upgrading the studio to make it more attractive for musicians, bands, singers and songwriters to record their music here.

One of the more recent upgrades is a distributed personal monitor system installed all rooms.
It puts 16 channel mixers in the hands of each instrumentalist/singer in the session. No need to compromise on what you each hear as your recording your songs. Simply dial in the mix and levels you find most pleasant to hear while the group records. All these mixers are independent of each other, so whether you're at the piano, drums, guitar, bass or keyboard or vocal room, you have access to your own personal mix right there.


Installing a 40" 4k video monitor over the studio console today. That's 4 seamless 1920x1080 monitors on one big 3840 X 2160 screen. Editing is about to get a little easier.

If you're thinking of doing this, make sure your video card is HDML 2.0 and 4K ready and also that your computer can handle the requirements. More later


I've just updated the web site with all the new upgrades to my studio - new bamboo floors in all 3rooms and a new Pearl Drum set. Check it all out at


Sound Design likes the "Kelly Shu" internal suspended kick drum mic mount.


Here at American Music Theatre today preparing to record the 2015 Christmas Show which opens Tuesday Nov 3rd. The cast and band are in rehearsal and sound terrific -a very talented group. The scenic elements are breathtaking! Can't wait to see this show next week!
