Our recording philosophy is generally pretty simple in that we do our best to capture the complete and true essence of the artists that choose to record here. We have purposefully set up the studio areas to facilitate giving full bands the ability to play and track instruments live with each other while being able to explore a variety of sonic characteristics enhanced by different room qualities.

*Mastering service through In The West is basic audio-only mastering. Essentially if you are on a budget and not planning on getting your tracks professionally mastered, this is an inexpensive service we provide to give your projects some level of finishing so they fit in the context of how people listen to music in the real world. For professional mastering, we recommend consulting our IN-HOUSE Mastering Engineer, Nick at Holy Tapes.
