The new SpiritHouse!! Full residential studio built in a 120 year old New England Carriage house with stunning grounds and accommodations. .
At Spirithouse we specialize in capturing the vintage warm analog sounds of the ‘70s without giving up any of the advantages that modern recording technology provides. Spirithouse features an MCI 536 console that defined the sound of some of the best records ever made like ACDC’s Back In Black as well as records from The Stones, Bob Marley, The Eagles, Elton John, James Brown, U2, J Geils and Aerosmith.
Spirithouse has a spacious, acoustically stunning control room, built and tuned specifically around our Augsburger soffit mounted speakers, which sound incredible.
We have a beautiful large performance room with various isolation options for amplifiers, and performers. We have an extensive collection of gear including high-end microphones from Telefunken, Neumann, RCA, AEA, Sony and Royer and vintage recording equipment from Neve, Telefunken, Fairchild, API, Avalon, Urie, MCI and more. Spirithouse has a long list of keyboards including several funky older Hammond organs, a Yamaha C3 grand piano, a 1956 blond Wurlitzer, a Mellotron, a Fender Rhodes as well as many funky vintage keyboards including a real Polymoog from the ‘80s.
