On Deck Sound Studio is owned and operated by Tracy Walton.
Our control room is a comfortable 12 x 16 room, that opens to our main 16 x 20 live room. Both rooms have 12 foot ceilings so they have a great vibe. The control also opens to a 30×20 space.. The studio is surrounded by woods so there are no distractions, other than the occasional bear and bobcat.
We are a Pro Tools based studio. We run the Apollo UA system, through a Neve 5060 console. We have a pair of 8050 Genelec monitors that gives you a great stereo image of what is happening.
