VINTAGE ANALOG & DIGITAL MIX
Shelter Island is equipped with a legendary collection of meticulously maintained vintage gear, from the custom modded 1979 MCI/NEVE/API analog console, to the vintage outboard, to the amazing mic cabinet, to our PRO TOOLS ULTIMATE 32 in/out system with an extensive list of the latest plugins
In October 1988 the studio opened on Shelter Island, two hours east of NYC. Producer/ engineer Steve Addabbo purchased all of the equipment from a well respected east side studio that was closing and set up the studio in the basement of his home. The timing was perfect, Steve had just had a huge success with Suzanne Vega’s “Solitude Standing” album and Shawn Colvin had just been signed to Columbia records. Steve and the studio began working on Colvin’s debut album, “Steady On”(a Grammy Winner), Eric Andersen’s classic, “Ghosts Upon the Road” and other major label and indy projects. Now in its 33rd year of operation, the studio continues to be a vital part of the New York recording and mixing scene.
