ModernTone Studios is a professional recording facility in Lafayette, CA. It features a large control room, a drum live room, and four isolation booths in various sizes, each meticulously tuned to sound incredible. The spaces were built from the ground up with acoustics and soundproofing in mind.

Recording Sessions include a producer / engineer and grant access to ModernTone’s instrument collection, that includes handpicked hi-end instruments, amps, and microphones. We also offer discounted daily rates and can accommodate most budgets.

We would love to help you with your project! Call, text or shoot us en email with some info on your vision and what you are looking to record. If you have any demos, please attach or include a link.
