“Having such a great time playing drums and mixing Tita Hutchison”s new EP. I’m working with Charlie Waymire on this project (at Ultimate Studios, Inc) and it’s been a dream. Charlie is a very talented engineer and producer. I’ve never worked with anyone before this that can get exactly the sounds you ask for. Somehow I can say, “can you make it more orange” and up comes the sound I’m looking for. If you need a studio or an engineer/producer you can’t go wrong with Charlie Waymire and Ultimate Studios, Inc.”

“Ultimate Studios, Inc was one of the best recording experiences Iʼve ever had. The first time I walked in and was greeted by Charlie, in seconds the place felt like home. The studio is laid out with very modern taste, but itʼs not like your typical studio you see in magazines, there is so much charm, life and character to it that makes it a breeding ground for creativity. Charlie and his crew really took the time to make the environment intimate and spacious, all at the same time. Whether youʼre tracking in the massive live room or behind the glass in the control room, everyone can see each other and be involved in tracking.
My band Statues of Cats recorded our debut EP “Memorabilia” at Ultimate Studios, Inc, and we wanted something very specific for our record. We wanted a “Live” album, without a metronome, like how all the classic rock bands used to make. Charlie was on it! He had everything we wanted and more, even showed us some microphones and techniques that made the record far better than we imagined. We spent a whole weekend working on our EP and the time flew by so fast. We had so much fun and felt right at home working with Charlie. The best part was the Charlie really took the time to get the tones dialed in, not just for the instruments, but for the songs. We spent a whole day trying to get the best set up for all of us to start tracking and we ended with some incredible sounds that gave us a EP that we are so very proud of. My band and I even got featured on a episode of Full On Drums during the making of our EP, which is filmed at Ultimate Rhythm Studios. You can see the way we got to mic everything and play together in the same room Thereʼs a lot passion and care that goes into making a great record and Charlie and the crew at Ultimate Studios, Inc, hold that expectation in the highest regard.
Also, on a personal note, MY DRUMS HAVE NEVER SOUNDED SO GOOD!! We micʼd my kit like crazy and got everything tuned up and locked down. Come mix down, we barely did anything to my drums, that was insane. A true, organic tone that shows through my bands songs. It was like hearing a kit from the 70sʼ, but it was still modern and punchy, I was completely blown away. Again, we had so much fun getting tones and there was so much genuine excitement about the tracking process. Having fit my drums, tons of mics and my band in the same room to track, with the tones we got… I mean, thats an experience that will be hard to beat.
Thank you Charlie Waymire at Ultimate Studios, Inc!! I will see you on the next project.”

“The first studio I ever recorded in when I moved to LA was Record Plant. I’ve also had the great experience of playing in studio’s like Studio City Sounds, and Eldorado, along with a good mix of home studios that had great professional level gear. Sometimes in the creative process I have found myself feeling like I’m being told that simply because you are recording into API, SSL, Neve, UA etc. That you’re going to get this great sound, and that has not always been the case. Charlie nailed my drum and guitar tones! We didn’t have to compromise even an inch on our creative vision of what we wanted to achieve with our sound. The attention was on the sound, not the gear, or the mics…..but rather the instruments themselves along with the context of the tones that we were trying to achieve. The final result exceeded my expectations and left me to want for nothing. ( except to get back in there ASAP and record some more tunes!!!) I Cannot recommend this guy and his studio enough!! GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!! At Ultimate Studios, Inc!
“I want to give a shout out to not only a great guy, but a good friend of ours!!! Charlie has helped us with the mixing and mastering of our new ep Dankruptcy. Working with him has been a pleasure, he always makes it fun to record and knows his stuff like a pro. This was my first time personally working with him and it has been a blast. I am looking forward to working with him in the future! Charlie thanks for all the hard work and great sounds you mixed for Dankrupt, We are truly grateful!!”
“Charlie is the MAN and if you want amazing recordings with precision detail on the drums then book yo ass with Charlie! You’ll thanks me!”

“Charlie is full of inspiration and life and his personality completely reflects on his work! I have had the oppurtunity to track drums for many songs at his studio for my projects and I can guarantee that the final product has always been some of the best drum sounds I have heard. I can’t wait to hear what he’ll bring to the table as a mixing/drum engineer in the future!”

“I recently had the pleasure of working at Ultimate Studios, Inc with engineer Charlie Waymire. I play guitar for a hard rock band. We had yet to find someone that could capture the energy and power of our live show and translate it digitally. Charlie understood what we were trying to accomplish and was not only willing, but also excited to experiment in the studio until we achieved our goal. He is extremely knowledgeable in the most current and state-of-the-art recording techniques and equipment, yet is not afraid to try something unconventional. His mixes speak for themselves and we are proud to have a professional quality product to share with the world!”
“I’ve had the honor and pleasure of knowing Charlie and having him perform with my band Right Hand Rule long before the studio was in existence. Charlie is a consummate pro not only on drums but as an engineer.
Right now we, The Right Hand Rule band, are in sessions at the Ultimate Studios, Inc where Charlie provides a comfortable relaxed creative atmosphere to do just that create! He strives to give you the best sound that you can possibly have by using top of the line recording equipment and unique ways of capitalizing on set ups. I’ve had nothing but “great” product recording out of this studio.
I personally use a lot of horns in my recordings and Charlie has been very creative in bringing my sound vision to life. And on the flip side of that I am a rocker at heart and Charlie, at the Ultimate Rhythm Studio has managed to record Right Hand Rules driving guitars and thunderous drum beats. I look forward to doing more work at the Ultimate Studios, Inc…”
