Erik's Pro Studio
Please Note: Most all recordings can be done at Erik's fully equipped A-series pro studio. However, for live grand piano, live drums, and full-band recording Erik has a network of great studios* to complete your recording. Erik also has a network of top session players who can either be brought into Erik's studio or have them record tracks using their own dialed-in studio setups.
