Whatever your recording needs

PGS uses Digidesigns Pro Tools HD2, at very reasonable rates to suit your recording budget. Pro Tools is the industry standard in digital recording and editing software. We’re talking extremely powerful!  Also, we use Digidesigns top of the line flagship converter, the 192 i/o.  Plus, too many plug ins to list.

*Hourly and 10 hour blocks rates are available. Contact us for our current rates. We also offer special rates for DAT and ADAT transfers to ProTools.

Live Musician Recording

Proving Ground Studio very much caters to “live musician” recording, therefore capturing your sound (see “Curt's philosophy of recording”). If you need professional musical accompaniment, Curt has the resources to find the right players for your project. PGS has a great sounding room with nice acoustics, "live" enough to add depth, but neutral enough not to be intrusive.

If you're looking to record a quick demo, a full length album project, or anything in between, Proving Ground Studio is an excellent choice!
