Welcome to Northfire Recording Studio, a world-class audio production facility located in western Massachusetts. We have lots of information about the studio on the site, but we love to show the studio in person, so feel free to get in touch with us from our contact form, or by phone at 413.256.0404 directly to learn more or arrange a tour of the studio.
Music is an emotional expression. Sonics play a major role in determining the personality and feel of any recorded music, so we tailor the sound we capture and create for each artist, album, and song. When the sound is right in lockstep with the song, the barrier between musician and listener melts away. That's why we ask "what do you want this to feel like?" at least as often as we ask "what do you want this to sound like?" This philosophy has guided us from the very beginning. Even before our first client stepped into the studio, we worked diligently to create a special environment. Collaborating with world-renowned acoustician and architect Michael Blackmer, we designed the studio to be a sonically flexible space so it can accommodate any sound from big and live to close and intimate. We also put a lot of though and effort into the feel of the spaces, and as a result Northfire is a very comfortable, relaxing place to work. Our equipment collection is broad, with a wide variety of high-end mics, outboard gear, and instruments for when inspiration strikes. Most importantly, our engineers are well versed in their art, expert at their craft, and understanding of the needs of our clients.
We are very excited to announce two new members of our staff: Marc Seedorf and Hugh Currier. These two young engineers started several years ago as interns, worked their way up through being assistant engineers and after quite a lot of experience and training, began engineering recording projects of their own. Hugh and Marc are fully qualified engineers, but since their experience is measured in years not decades, we can offer studio time with either of them for an easily affordable rate. Please contact us for more details.
