Magic Door is designed for full-band performance. We can accommodate ensembles of any size or configuration. A finely-tuned, 600-square-foot live room boasts 13-foot ceilings, two fully isolated amp closets, and two full-view isolation rooms. Get as loud or as quiet as the song requires. The vibe is cozy and relaxed. Play together, track separately.

Mixing is an artful endeavor.Our 330-square-foot control room was designed for collaboration and comfort. Beautifully balanced and outfitted with the digital and analog gear that make mixing fun, musicians can hear their work transformed into the richly textured recordings that they envision. Magic Door is equipped to work remotely via Audiomovers, so we can record and mix with artists all over the world.
