West Triad studios located in Venice California is a state of the art, extraordinarily comfortable facility located three blocks from the beach. Mark Schulman (PINK, Billy Idol, Cher, Velvet Revolver, Sheryl Crow), Julian Coryell (Jewel, Leonard Cohen, Carol King) and Erich Gobel (Black Sabbath, John Mayer, Ray Charles) have created a facility that combines API, Neve (Phoenix Audio), Telefunken and TL Audio mic pres with Apogee converters, vintage/modern mics, vintage/modern compressors, six drum kits, 25 snare drums, 80 cymbals, an array of vintage guitar amps, guitars, pedals, keyboards, a MAC Pro 8 Core computer, Protools and Cubase software.
The floor and walls are floated, the electronics are discreet, the rooms are tuned and the ceilings are vaulted with skylights. Download a pdf of our studio plans.
