RECORDING STUDIO
 

Amber Lit Audio is an 1100 sq ft recording studio located beside the Grand River downtown Grand Rapids, MI (beautiful view).  The studio is owned & run by Matt Ten Clay, who has been playing, recording, and mixing music for about 15 years.  We cut to the chase by using high-grade gear and ears, and very much enjoy working with musicians and helping them achieve the results they desire.

 

Rates are a straight and simple $30 per hour, whether it's setting up, tracking, editing, mixing, or mastering.
Price includes a studio engineer and use of any and all gear in studio.
Paypal, Square, cash, or check is accepted, and you will be issued a receipt post session payment.
