TT12 - Studio D Recording and Loudville

Studio D Recording

The 5.1 surround sound enabled Pro Tools HD|3 Accel system and collection of classic preamps, compressors and eq’s makes Studio D ( a perfect balance of cutting edge and vintage, attracting artists like Carlos Santana, Train and Kenny Wayne Shephard. During the tour, studio owner and head engineer Joel Jaffe will conduct an on-site demonstration of surround mixing and different ways to mix a track, examining placement, mics used and overall mix results.


Loudville ( is a step in the future, with combined professional audio and video for live-streaming or archival and editing. With an oversized audio control room which can double as a live performance sound stage and robotic HD video cameras from every angle, this world class recording studio is able to stream live at any time. The Avid D-Command console is wired to talk to the video control room for smooth sound-to-picture integration. Loudville plans to stream their portion of this technical tour live through their website.

Studio D Recording and Loudville are in the same complex, combined as one tour.
