Memphis Magnetic Recording Co. is a classic analog recording facility that is housed in a old commercial building from the 1920s in downtown Memphis, TN. Renovated by the legendary, Bob Suffolk of Suffolk Studio Design, we are an analog-centric studio, and offer a variety of classic and modern recording options.
By tracking primarily to analog tape, we believe we offer an experience that is becoming rare in the field of modern record production. We usually track to 2 inch 16 track (2 inch 24 track also available) and believe that the ‘limitation’ of 16 tracks is one of our greatest assets, as it forces musicians and engineers alike to be as succinct as possible when it comes to musical and technical decisions (we do however also, offer Protools for those projects that prefer or require it).
We also believe a band will deliver the best performance when they are comfortable and able to communicate with each other. For this reason, whenever possible, musicians play together in the same room with a clear line of vision between them. By keeping these ideas in mind, we strive to offer an experience as well as a final product akin to the ‘good-old-days’ of recording.
