WHY WORK WITH US?
WE LIVE & BREATH
You wouldn’t go to your doctor to get heart surgery would you? Of course not. You’d go to a SPECIALIST to perform the surgery. Unlike other studios, we focus on one style of music: heavy. That makes us SPECIALISTS in high-gain guitars, killer vocals, and skull-crushing drums.
WE ALWAYS GO
THE EXTRA MILE
Unlike other studios, we offer drum replacement, guitar re-amping, and minor post-production (like reverse snares and sub drops) with every mix. No extra charge.
WE'RE A RELIABLE
Mixing, mastering, production, vocal editing, drum programming, arrangement, orchestration, synth layering, and more. We do it all, and we make it easy.
HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Working with Jake has been an absolutely incredible experience, from start to finish. He makes everything extremely easy to work through, from pre production to recording to keeping in budget, and gets just as excited and invested as you do in your music. He gives great insight and tweaks to enhance your music but not change it and keep it yours. The communication with him is on point, with a lot of updates. The programmed drums sound amazing and real, guitar and bass tones were nasty, and how he tweaked and edited the vocals are beautiful. 100 percent will be working with him a lot more!!! He’s my producer now!!!
I can't recommend jake highly enough! perfect blend of professional and approachable, and makes the whole process as stress-free as possible
Where to start with this review? well if I could give him 10 stars then I would! I've worked with Jake on several projects now and it's ALWAYS a pleasure to do business with him. Nothing is ever too much trouble and he goes above and beyond the call of duty to help. I've thrown some less than perfect stuff at him over the past year or so and EVERYTHING comes back as sweet as a nut and Radio Ready! His professionalism is second to none and if says he's going to deliver a project on a said date then deliver it he will. I tipped Jake as best producer, engineer, mentor newcomer last year and I'm definitely standing by that prediction! We'll be hearing a lot more of Jake Kodweis in the future so if you're ready to get going on your projects/productions don't hesitate, he's your man!
Absolutely phenomenal engineer! I’m overjoyed with how my song came out. I love how Jake offers his personal touch on the projects he is working on. Highly recommended for any studio project you’re working on!!
Jake Kodweis is a tremendous engineer! He has extensive knowledge of audio recording, electronics, and has good equipment to produce consistently great audio. Jake's musicianship and proficiency in music theory is also impressive. He has previously played in some excellent bands, which makes him a fantastic creative partner in the studio as well. Jake's a wonderful person to work with who is professional and will get the best sound for your project!
