The November 2018 MSP Audio Geeks meetup will be on Tuesday, November 27th from 7-9pm at Sovereignty Recording. Justin Muffett and Kenny Befus are our hosts.

From the website:
We do things a little differently here at Sovereignty Recording…. more importantly, we really like to do things your way. As a recording artist, you have more options now than ever before when it comes to recording, producing, and releasing music. We know this. Our goal is to enable you to own your sound and do it in an affordable manner.

We’re in the scene…
We aim to be fully engaged with the Twin Cities music scene and support the artists who are making good music. We’ve done our best to maximize quality vs. cost on our end and do our darndest to pass that savings on to our clients (SHARE THE LOVE!). Be sure to check out the work we are doing with Pony Rug when you get a chance – we are strongly aligned with their vision: to expose and support local musical talent.

We’re flexible…
Wanna do a full-length album at our studio? Great, we can do that! Just need need a kick-ass drum track for 1 song on your upcoming full-length album? Also great! We are as excited about small projects as we are large projects. Whether you simply need a vocal track, or a drum track, or even just a few hours in the studio to hash ideas out, we can make that happen.

We love drums…
We’ve got a great room for tracking drums (and everything else, of course!). We know that getting solid drum tracks can be one of the biggest challenges when you’re trying to produce and record on your own and without dropping $$$. We can help with that.

From the website:
In 1988, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis built a private recording studio called Flyte Tyme Studios where they recorded over a hundred gold and platinum albums with artists including Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, and many others before moving to Los Angeles in 2002. Thirty years after Flyte Tyme started, the facility is transforming into a multimedia studio complex open to the public called Runway Studios.

Runway offers no-compromise studios specifically designed for media freelancers. We have recording spaces and control rooms that are second to none and integrate seamlessly into the home studio workflow.

We believe that a vibrant, creative community thrives when artists are able to interact and connect with each other and we are excited to have musicians, photographers, producers, and videographers all working under one roof.
