Ari Melinger-Cohen at Tone Mountain



Tone Mountain is located in Boulder, CO. The studio is focused on capturing high quality analogue sound. The studio has two sound treated rooms for recording, a high fidelity listening space for mixing, a microphone locker of over 15 high-end microphones (condensers, ribbons, and dynamics), an analogue outboard chain for recording and mixing including 20 channels of world-class preamps and converters, and a wide collection of instruments and amplifiers to play through. The studio has a wide array of digital plugins and software instruments available to create and shape sounds to any taste. Pro Tools is most frequently used for recording, but Logic Pro, Ableton Live, and LUNA are available as well, if the project demands. 

The studio offers services for pre-production (composition and arranging), production (which entails orchestrating the execution of making the music), recording, and mixing.
