Arista recording artist/songwriter and producer Butch Walker recently opened up his Russ Berger-designed Ruby Red Productions in Atlanta. The retro/modern-inspired studio features two control rooms: “A Control” offers an SSL 4048 E/G with Ultimation, Studer MK III A800 24-track recorder and a Pro Tools rig; B features an expanded Pro Tools MIXPlus system with Pro Control. An A/V SAN Fibre Drive Network connects the two rooms.

“I just wanted a place that would be my musical clubhouse,” Walker said. “That's why when you walk in here, it feels like a hangout rather than a sterile recording studio. Plus, it gives me a private place to produce my projects [including his recently released Left of Self-Centered], with no worries about whom I'm gonna write the check to for studio time. Beats the hell out of investing in the stock market!”

Recently in to record, with Walker handling production chores, were Sevendust working on their as-yet-untitled fourth studio album.
