Recording engineer/producer Chris Phillips fled L.A. to build his dream recording facility, Cider Mountain Recorders, located just north of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Designed by Chris Pelonis, the recording retreat offers two control rooms (Studio A: recently installed API Legacy Plus analog console; Studio B: Trident TSM console; both offer Pelonis Signature monitoring systems), an editing suite, multiple ultraflexible recording spaces, a large selection of vintage recording gear and instruments, a healthy stock of mics, Pro Tools|HD, Studer recorders and a 1901 Steinway 9-foot concert grand piano.

According to Pelonis, “At Cider Mountain, we were able to create a generous, spacious tracking room with very high ceilings and a really involved trapping and diffusion system.”

Cider Mountain recently hosted Virgin recording artists The Explosion, whose producer, Jason Carmer, is also a fan of Pelonis-designed rooms and speakers. “[Carmer] said that our live room was by far the best-sounding room he's ever tracked in, and he's been in a lot of studios,” Phillips enthused.
