The latest entry onto the New York City top-tier studio scene has arrived in the form of Germano Studios (www.germano studios.com). Located in the downtown environs of Manhattan's NoHo district, the facility takes the expertise of Troy Germano's years of running all of the multi-multi-studio Hit Factorys in New York City, Miami and London, and focuses it onto a much more intimate two-room space.

A visit to the studio revealed a very 2008 approach to the design of a world-class recording and mix facility. Both of the rooms — designed by Germano and David Bell, Studio 1 and Studio 2 — are centered around SSL Duality 48-input analog consoles, plus SSL 32-input X-Rack monitor mixers for a total of 80 inputs. A healthy mix of highly varied outboard dynamics processors and plug-in effects combine for a versatile and dependable sound-shaping signal path. The facility represents an intriguing addition to the already competitive high-end New York City studio scene.
