When we laid out the recording studio at Taylor Sound, we did it with the purpose of making it comfortable and functional. Load in is simple and easy because the studio is on the ground floor. Choose driving in to our covered loading dock or just come in the front door from our ample and free parking lot.

With 2 live rooms, you can record a full band with plenty of options for separation. Our 6'X8' vocal booth is spacious enough to fit 3 or even 4 vocalists at a time. When it's time to cut a lead vocal, you'll find the booth to be an intimate place where the creative spirit is easily accessed. Our 16'X16' live room can be customized with sound baffles to get the sound you're looking for. We can get 'big and live' or a 'tight and snappy' drum sound.

The engineers at Taylor Sound listen to the clients. We want to give you the sound you hear in your head. We will do everything in our power to help bring that into reality. Our technique takes everything into account, from guitar strings and drum heads to pre-amps and microphones. You play the songs, let us capture the sound.
