Let’s Make Music
Owner and head engineer Charlie Waymire built Ultimate Studios, Inc for one reason: To work with amazing musicians, making amazing music.
“I look at myself as a conduit for the artist and I use Ultimate Studios, Inc as my instrument to help them capture their music exactly how they hear it.” says engineer Charlie Waymire.
Ultimate Studios, Inc is a boutique production facility for artists and bands to collaborate, create, and record. Ultimate Studios, Inc’s team can assist artists through the entire creative process including recording, mixing, mastering, and video production. Our ultimate goal is to help bands and artists build a strong brand for a lasting career.
The control room is centered around the all new Trident 88 Analog Recording Console. This is a fantastic sounding console born from the classic Tridents that have recorded artists such as David Bowie, Queen, Elton John, Black Sabbath, Jeff Beck, and many more.
The control room is filled with other analog outboard gear from Rupert Neve, Tonelux, Overstayer, Daking, Warm Audio, Smart Research, DBX, and more. It’s also spacious and comfortable.
Tracking full bands, live, is not a problem in the 1600 sq ft facility including a spacious, and fantastic sounding, 600 square foot live room. All the treatments in the room are on a rail system which makes the room tunable to fit the artists needs. See photos and gear list here.
For guitar and vocal isolation there is a cozy ISO booth between the control room and live room.
We can record your next Single, EP, or Album and take you all the way through the mixing and mastering stages. We’re here to help assist you in any way possible to achieve your artistic goals. Let’s record!!
From simple overdubs to drums, to full band, live, tracking Ultimate Studios, Inc will help make your musical dreams a reality!
Drums, Cymbals, & Amps are available for your use at every session.
In this day and age it’s common to collaborate with musicians all over the globe. We do that ALL the time! Artists & Producers from Germany, France, Italy and Australia have had drums, guitars, bass and vocals tracked here at Ultimate Rhythm Studios by some of LA’s finest musicians.
“I record so many different styles of music that I purposely built to studio to be able to morph into any situation. There is a railing system around the room that allows me to move the absorbers and different diffusors anywhere needed. This means that within minutes I can change the sound of the room to fit the music.” says engineer Charlie Waymire.
Bring On The Drums!
Getting great drum sounds is more than just “getting a great drum sound”. It’s about getting a sound that is right for the song. Context is EVERYTHING! Our specialty at Ultimate Studios, Inc is getting each and every artist the perfect sounding drums for their songs.
Drums are a complex instrument to record well and capturing great sounding drum tracks is a combination of recording techniques and performance.
Besides being an accomplished drummer himself, engineer Charlie Waymire is extremely adept at working with drummers to get the best possible performance. This is one of the many reasons that Ultimate Studios, Inc has become a home for drummers to record their drum tracks.
Charlie took on the daunting task of building his own drum friendly recording studio where he could create the drum sounds he had always envisioned.
With a fantastic sounding live room, and a Trident 88 console at the helm, Ultimate Studios, Inc has quickly become the “go to” hub for drummers of all styles including Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Ray Luzier (Korn), Josh Freese (Perfect Circle), Benny Rogers II (Mariah Carey), J.R. Robinson (Michael Jackson), Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper), Mike Avenaim (Scott Weiland), Jeff Bowders (Paul Gilbert), Greg Garman (Selena Gomez), Nick Adams (David Cook), and many others.
The live room is a spacious 600sq ft and can be completely customized to each and every project, making the room extremely versatile.
Besides having a room made for recording drums, Ultimate Studios, Inc. has a collection of great sounding drums from Pearl, Gretsch, Yamaha, and Ludwig as well has bags full of fantastic sounding Paiste cymbals.
