Designed by world-renowned studio architect Russ Berger, BLADE Studios includes two separate sound recording studios. Each studio’s wonderfully crafted, world-class ambient spaces provide the very best sonic quality and absolute sound isolation in each room. Client areas include dedicated lounges, kitchens, private restrooms and shower, private office suites, conference rooms and workstations. Each sound recording studio is designed to be an inspiring and comfortable space so that artists can concentrate on making a great record in a laid-back environment.

Russ Berger’s Design

BLADE Studios chose Russ Berger Design Group to design BLADE Studios. Our accomplished goal was to build a world-class facility that rivals any studio complex on the planet. Russ’ team has over 2,500 recording, production and broadcast studio projects to their credit. Russ is a foremost expert on sound and an eight-time TEC Award winner for design excellence.

We began meeting with Russ and his team in early 2009, and developed a design plan that delivers an inspiring space built around the artist. Looking back on our collective studio experience and through interviews with many artists, engineers and producers, we set out to create a music production and sound recording complex that provides everything a recording artist could want.  Most importantly, each of the rooms ensures unmatched sound quality during the performance and on the record.

Russ and his team delivered. BLADE Studios is a multi-million dollar work of art that stands on par with any facility in the world.

  • Sonic Excellence

    floating floor construction in Blade Studios

    Most studios are retrofitted into existing buildings and constructed on slab or conventional foundations, which lead to sound bleed between rooms, from vibrations in the floor.  All of the sound recording areas at BLADE Studios are constructed on floating floors, ensuring no sound bleed or vibration between rooms.  Custom-engineered and built from the ground up, BLADE Studios was constructed to be the finest sound recording facility in the world.  Each room is designed to be truly isolated from noises in or outside the complex while producing sonically perfect sound studio rooms.

  • Wired for Video

    All areas in the studio are wired for video. With this capability Blade Studios can produce for the recording artist “Making Of..” features and or live web casts on artists’ websites.
