512 Studios is a full service analog and digital recording studio equipped with a 22′ x 22′ drum room with 4 surrounding  isolation booths  for live recording.  A full headphone monitoring system and  a 32 Channel analog mixing console.  Also the home base of the local T.V. show “512 Studios Live” all shot and recorded in-house.

We are located right the heart of  Austin, less than 3 minutes from downtown. 512 Studios is located walking distance from many new and historical music venues, restaurants and stores.

Designed by Omar Vallejo, this studio has been set up with a West Coast vibe. The spacious rooms, warm colors create a laid-back feeling from the moment you enter the studio. To further compliment this mood, the studio has a vintage console to capture that warm analog tone.

Recording in historical studios like Oceanway Studios (Hollywood,CA) and the Record Plant (Sausalito,CA), Omar was inspired to reproduce those same type of lay outs. 

“I wanted a feel good atmosphere right when you walk in. Recording can be a stressful time for some folks, so I wanted to create a positive vibe right from the get go.”—Omar Vallejo
