After opening just two short years ago, owner Chet Thompson and studio manager Donny Baker have moved Elephant Symphony Studios (www.elephantsymphony.com) from North Hollywood to Burbank, Calif. The newly expanded facility features three post-production suites, two voice-over booths, a drum room, a lounge area and a bigger space for the control and live rooms.

The studio's A room is centered around a Pro Tools HD 3 Accel and Control|24 (192 I/O and SYNC I/O), as well as an extensive mic closet and plug-in arsenal. Monitoring is via VANT LX5s for surrounds. Studio B offers Pro Tools LE via Digi 002. In keeping with their “jungle theme” from the previous location, Baker and his crew used different varieties of wood for baffling and décor. They also concentrated on glass installation to make the live and control rooms open and airy.

In the past year, Elephant Symphony has worked with such clients as Tony Toni Toné, Chicago rapper Juice (featured in 8 Mile), the Santa Clarita Valley Symphony, Mitch Marine (drummer for Dwight Yoakam), bass player Cat Daddy of Parliament and up-and-coming hip hop artist Louis Garcia.
