Sunset Lodge Recording will be closing its doors tomorrow for good. While I'm not certain I will reopen another studio immediately, I am looking forward to whatever the future brings. It's been a great run. I've meet a lot of great people and learned a lot from all of them. Thank you to everyone who has made the last 7 years awesome!

Also, a special thanks to everyone who helped me build this place. The many coolers of beer, and pots of coffee through long nights of building and wiring will always be rad memories!

If anyone needs to contact me for future Production/Mixing/Engineering work, email me at [email protected]

Took me 7 years to finally add speaker tie lines to the control room. Better late than never.

Valhalla DSP f**king rules. You gotta love a company that responds to tech support in literally less than 5 minutes! So for everyone pirating all that expensive software, go purchase some killer Valhalla reverbs for mad cheap.

Wardy, loving the tones!
