In Flight Music Studios is a professional Los Angeles recording facility with an open tracking space and killer vibe. The music studio features a vintage SSL 8064 G+ console alongside a plethora of the world’s best outboard gear, microphones, and instruments.
Our LA Fashion District location is two blocks from the 10 freeway and is easily accessible from Hollywood, Burbank, and Santa Monica.
We pride ourselves in being a space musicians can separate themselves from the world and create.
The Tracking Space
The jewel of the studio is the EPIC tracking space. With its expansive open floor plan and up to fifteen-foot ceilings, large setups are a breeze. Great care was taken to have the acoustic properties of the room just right, giving the engineer a smooth full sound, free of any phase laden reflective build-up with just the right amount of ambiance.
Our Solid State Logic 8064 G+ console started life as a very large 100 channel G+ at Record One in 1993. While the console’s early years included Michael Jackson hits, her legacy was set in stone during the ten prolific years (1997 – 2007) Dr. Dre locked out the studio and had the console all to himself.
We have painstakingly refurbished the console, and the sound is better than new. The power supply has been upgraded to the Atomic S2, and with the addition of the THD Tangerine automation system, you can now control the Solid State Logic Ultimation via Pro Tools!
A stable of (32) CAPI FD312 discrete mic preamps with vintage API 550a and Tonelux EQ plus multiple Neve and Focusrite channel strips and Pultec equalizers bring a great tone to even the largest of setups. Compression is provided by Neve, API, Urei, Teletronix, Shadow Hills, Inward connections, Chandler Limited, Tube-Tech, Retro Instruments, Empirical Labs, and more.

Clients have a hard time staying away from our Yamaha C7 grand piano. With the piano’s glossy white finish, it’s hard not to stare. The Yamaha C7 was voiced by listening in the room as well as through microphones to assure a beautifully balanced tone for your recordings.
