The philosophy at Airtime is simple – Bring out the best that the music has to offer. Whatever the genre, whatever the style, whatever the group size – Major Label to Indy, Singer/Songwriter to Full Gospel Choir to Heavy Metal to Pop Set up – What matters is the music. Budgets vary, timelines vary, but the delivery of the highest possible quality recording is what we’re here for. The environment is rural – surrounded by woods and free of the noise and distractions of urban studios. We want the process easy, comfortable, and driven by the vision of the customer, with the support of the best Engineers around and a line-up of high-end, sought-after Studio Musicians and Arrangers. If we record it – they will listen.
