Gurari Studios

Gurari Studios 20 years as NYC's premiere operatic recording studio

GURARI STUDIOS is a unique recording, editing, mixing and mastering facility that specializes in the recording of opera and musical theater singers, solo instrumentalists and chamber ensembles. All aspects of the recording process are done in-house saving the musicians the frustration of dealing with multiple facilities. Whether on location or in the studio, our goal is to achieve an accurate natural sonic representation of the instrument or instruments being recorded. Particularly with singers, this is achieved through extensive knowledge of all the human voice types, microphone placement, microphone choice, a wide assortment of equipment and an understanding of the operatic and art song repertoire.

Jeremy Gerard, chief engineer at Gurari Studios at the National Opera Center in New York, takes us on a recording session with Soprano Sigal Chen and pianist Eric Sedgwick. How does Jeremy get the piano sound he wants? He uses a Royer SF-12 stereo ribbon microphone into two Royer dBoosters (in-line signal boosters) into a UA Apollo 8P. The dBoosters increase the signal of the passive SF-12 by 20dB without adding noise or distortion.

A #sphericalsunday at the Opera: Gurari Studios is NYC's premiere operatic recording studio specializing in capturing Opera and musical theater singers. This M-S pair of two Sphere L22s is chief engineer Jeremy Gerard’s new go-to setup for tracking opera singers. Jeremy posted this shot in the Townsend Labs - Users & Fans group. If you haven't already done so, join us there to get spherical, ask questions to other Sphere users, and talk shop!

So great to speak with John Jennings today, one of the founders and owners of Royer labs who in my opinion make some of the finest microphones today. They are interested in our recordings, particularly the way we use ribbon microphones to capture the natural sound of opera singers and classical musicians. It will be an honor to be included in their audio/video library with the likes of Al Schmitt, Bruce Swedien and many other of today's top audio engineers.

It has wood flooring and ceiling, platform stage and adjustable acoustic panels to alter the "liveness" of the hall. In addition to operatic/musical theater piano and vocal recordings, the hall is perfectly suited for orchestral, choral and chamber recordings.
