VALHALLA STUDIOS NEW YORK Looks Back At Eventful First Year

Twelve months have passed since VALHALLA STUDIOS NEW YORK opened its gates to artists and producers all over the world. Previously exclusively utilized by multi-million record selling rock/metal legends MANOWAR, the studio – owned by the band’s founder/bassist/producer Joey DeMaio – meanwhile offers uniquely pure acoustics, state-of-the-art equipment, and world-class engineers for artists and projects of all types and genres.

“We couldn’t anticipate that our first year would coincide with such an incredibly tumultuous time,” said DeMaio. “But despite the unprecedented challenges that we all faced, we’ve been able to continue providing our services with uncompromised quality and care,” he added. “Thanks to our fantastic team we adapted to the situation with solutions such as remote mixing and real-time remote collaborations. We mixed multiple live events across the world remotely from our studio and recently also mixed our first feature film project in 7.1.”

Embracing Immersive Audio from the very beginning, VALHALLA STUDIOS NEW YORK’s over 20,000 square foot facility is equipped with multiple studios and is one of the first and few studios in the world certified for all of the leading immersive formats, SONY 360RealAudio®, DOLBY ATMOS® and AURO3D®.

Recently completed projects include singles, albums, and live events by artists such as Peter Maffay, Helloween, David Garrett, Hooverphonic, Alain Mallet, and Blind Guardian.

In the weeks to come the studio will look back to shine a light on some of the projects that award-winning Recording/Mixing Engineer and Immersive Audio pioneer Ronald Prent and four-time Grammy® Award winning Mastering Engineer Darcy Proper have completed throughout the year, not only to thank artists and producers for their faith and loyalty but also to honor projects that due to the state of the world may not have received the attention they deserved.
