Calling Liam Gallagher: Private Recording Oasis in NYC


(DGIwire) — New York City is a recording artist’s dream. But with so many recording studios in every borough, and with each one offering something different, it can sometimes be a daunting task to choose the right one. The important questions to ask are these: Is it best to use a studio with a tucked-away, private atmosphere or a big city vibe? Which studio has state-of-the-art equipment? Would a studio specializing in live recordings be ideal? Which artists have recorded there? How long has the studio been in operation? What is its legacy? How proficient are the engineers, sound technicians and other professionals employed there?

What if a musician didn’t have to choose, but could find all of the above and more in one recording facility? Located in the beating heart of midtown Manhattan—but as private and tranquil inside as anyone could wish for- Manhattan Center Productions (MCP) offers all these features and more. No need to compromise quality for comfort or vice versa.

Since its conception in 1906, Manhattan Center itself has become a New York City cultural institution. Almost every night of the week, its two ballrooms—the Hammerstein Ballroom and the Grand Ballroom—buzz with rock concerts, symphonies, galas and fashion shows. Recently it even hosted the TechCrunch Disrupt NY, which showcased the hottest new technology startup companies working on the “next big things.”

While Manhattan Center’s ballroom events calendar reads like a Who’s Who of New York nightlife, the MCP studio complex ensures a quiet, highly sought-after space to record albums, soundtracks and any and everything else imaginable. Its two recording studios, Studio 7 and the Log Cabin, are both equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and software. Studio 7 links up directly to the Hammerstein Ballroom and Grand Ballroom, making it ideal for recording a live performance. The Log Cabin offers a rustic living room-like feel, complete with a soundproof drum booth, private kitchen and comfy lounge. With all these amenities, both studios are truly a producer’s, artist’s and engineer’s dream.

“We are not a one-note recording space,” says OBie O’Brien, Director of Audio & Video Production at MCP. “We are proud of our studios and the roster of world-class clients they attract. We understand the importance of creating and keeping a vast client base, always holding ourselves up to a high standard.”
