Working on postproduction with Brazilian guitar master Chico Pinheiro and audio engineer Iuri Oriente for Chico’s upcoming album.

After a comprehensive tech review and rearranging the studio furniture, everything is sounding great and the space is comfortable and cozy.

A cozy and tight configuration to record several film cues with an alto flute - front end chain: Telefunken AR-51, Vintech X73, DBX 160X in to an Antelope interface. Sounds beautiful!

I've worked at the Atelier studios several times in Long Island City to record both tracks for music videos and album releases. The studio comes highly recommend because of its versatility and flexibility to meet a lot of different session needs. As a bass player, the electric bass sound we captured was pretty slamming. When I've recorded upright bass there the sound was comparable to any high-profile major studio recording. The studio also has a growing reputation for capturing a one of a kind drum sound and word is getting out among drummers. While there are several amazing studios in the Long Island City and Astoria, Atelier Studio stands out and has a growing roster of international Grammy level talent coming through for good reason. Between the house engineer expertise and producer chops of master musician Zé Luis and his team, you are in good hands. Pricing is reasonable too.

By far the best guitar tone I have ever acheived in a studio. Zé is one of the most resourceful, prepared, professional and unique composers/producers I have had the pleasure to work with in my career of almost 20 years. I highly recommend the Atelier Music Studio for any music production, post/pre production needs.

We've been working with The Atelier Music Studio and Zé Luis Oliveira for a while now. He is extremely professional, ethical, polite and the studio is highly equipped with the best and most modern technology and their prices are very competitive. We've used the studio for our own projects, as well as recommended them to countless clients that have been very satisfied with everything. We have other upcoming project with them and we are working on a long term base!
