King Electric Recording is a custom designed recording studio in Austin, Texas. We feature a large tracking room with curved wooden walls and dozens of vintage and unique instruments, including a 1930s Baldwin baby grand piano. For recording, mixing, and mastering, we offer an acoustically designed control room; a vintage 24-channel Neve console; a 2” 24 track tape machine; a complete and updated Pro Tools rig; and an extensive collection of outboard gear and microphones, including modern and vintage Neumann vocal mics.
The studio is home to award-winning engineer and producer Justin Douglas, a Berklee graduate with 15 years of experience working on hundreds of recordings spanning multi-platinum and Grammy-winning albums, feature films, and small-batch limited pressings.
King Electric Recording studio was designed from the ground up in Austin to be an ideal environment both acoustically and creatively and is also available to experienced freelance engineers at a deeply discounted rate. We make unparalleled recordings and do so in a stress-free environment. We invite you to come by, have a coffee, and check us out any time.
