Sacramento's premiere recording studio

Sacramento's premiere recording studio



At the heart of J Street is a vintage Neve 8128. This classic console features dual-path for mixdown, allowing for 112 inputs simultaneously. Retrofitted with a Flying Faders Automation system, fader movements can be controlled via onboard controllers or via Pro Tools. To preserve its originally intended audio integrity, this console has been extensively serviced and is well maintained.


We feature a fleet of top-of-the-line converters as well as fully analog recorders. Our digital interfacing is provided by Apogee Symphony I/Os paired with an Avid HDX and SYNC HD system, or MOTU HD192 audio interfaces, each allowing for more than 48 inputs and outputs. Both Mac and PC systems are available for use.

If you’re looking that extra bit of magic, our 24 track Sony MCI reel to reel tape machine might have what you’re looking for.


Monitoring is done with soffit-mounted Tannoy System 15DMTs, and available on the console are your preference of Genelec 1032Bs, Yamaha HS-80ms, Adam A7s, or the classic Yamaha NS-10ms.
