Nestled in the beautiful hills of northwest NJ in a place called Schooleys Mountain, Green Chapel Studios is home to one of the northeast's great live recording rooms and the largest analog Calrec console in North America. Our studio "A" boasts a 21' ceiling and our control room is rooted in the design of one of America's greatest recording studios. We have hand selected some of the best new and vintage analog gear featuring Otari, Neve, SSL, Melcor, CBS, Massenburg, API, Sony, Neumann, AKG, Microtek Gefell. We have a beautiful meticulously maintained Yamaha grand piano, a vintage Fender Rhodes stereo suitcase model, Wurlitzer 200a electric piano, Hammond M 143 and a Leslie 147 We have a nice collection of Marshall, Fender, Bensen, Ampeg & Hilgen amps, three drum sets and 7 hand picked vintage snare drums, a rack of vintage synths. But is our room that sets Green Chapel apart from most private production studios today. The sound is larger than life. At Green Chapel Studios our staff is always doing their best to meet the needs of the most discerning bands and producers. This is without a doubt the place to cut your next record.


Our Calrec S2 Production Console is particularly special.
Literally a "One Of A Kind" console and referred to herein as "The Mighty Calrec". We purchased the original Calrec S2 Analog Production Console in September of 2016 in Chicago. The original console (#608) was a 1997 custom build for Trio Video (A company with Audio/Video remote trucks known for handling such music festivals such as Coachella, Austin City Limits & Lollapalooza among others). This console was delivered on Nov 7th of 1997. Immediately we began the arduous task of seeking out parts to expand upon this glorious console.  This came in a variety of forms including scouring the internet for individual parts, and the purchase of 2 other Calrec S2 Production consoles. By combining these 3 Calrec S2 consoles (#608, #699 & #700) we were able to expand #608 by adding additional metering, additional dynamics, changing the configuration by adding 36 additional channels and making our beloved #608 into the largest and one of the most versitile Calrec analog recording consoles in North America.
