New Recording Studio Opens at IADT-Las Vegas

March 11, 2013

LAS VEGAS – March 11, 2013 – The International Academy of Design & Technology Las Vegas (IADT), a college offering associate’s and bachelor's degrees in a variety of design and technology disciplines, announces the completion and opening of Vegas View Recording, a 2,500-square-foot recording and mixing studio within its campus. Designed by renowned studio architect Carl Yanchar and IADT’s Robert "Bobby" Ferrari, the industry-standard recording studio is first and foremost a teaching studio for IADT students. But Vegas View Recording at IADT is also available for hourly and daily lease by professionals and others seeking use of a high quality studio operated by seasoned professionals.

The studio includes a vocal booth, a 1,200-square-foot live recording room and industry current control room - all with a view of the Las Vegas Strip. The control room is equipped with an SSL-9080J console for mixing and recording on a large format analog desk. The studio features a 48IO Pro Tools HDX system with a Waves Mercury Bundle, along with a complement of outboard gear ranging from Neve 1073 Mic Pres, Summit Audio Pres, Eq’s, and Compressors, Bricasti Reverb, JCF Latté Convertors, and Dynaudio M3 Main Monitors with Lab Grupen Amps.

The acoustical design of the new facility is a modern take on the classic designs created by legendary designer Bill Putman, dubbed by his peers as the father of modern recording. Traditional acoustic treatments, such as hard tile flooring, acoustical ceiling materials on the walls and acoustic absorbers near the floor for a deep low-end transmission, combine with modern technology in the control room to create a “new” version of a classic sound environment. 

“We’re thrilled to offer to everyone – from the famous to the independent artist or group - these new professional-quality services and recording facilities. Vegas View Recording has been designed as a top quality studio to record and experience working with professionals and students in a comfortable environment. We are confident it will be a hit with recording artists, engineers, students and everyone who loves recording music,” said Ferrari, Studio Manager at IADT Las Vegas.

“This will be a good place in Nevada to learn the true art of modern recording techniques,” Ferrari added. “IADT students will experience what real sessions are like in a truly professional environment, learning the minutiae involved in operating and managing a facility of industry standards.” 

Ferrari has a long and successful track record in Las Vegas of developing and operating recording studios.  In 1998, he oversaw the remodel and technical install of Lee Pepper Sound; advised and chief engineered Studio Vegas (now The Killers’ Battleborn Studios); performed gear upgrades for Digital Insight Recording; and co-designed, managed, and installed the TEC Award-nominated Odds On Records & Studios, featured on the Cover of MIX Magazine in November 2009.

Vegas View Recording is located on the campus of International Academy of Design & Technology, Las Vegas, 2495 Village View Drive, Henderson, NV.  IADT-Las Vegas is just minutes from McCarran International Airport off Interstate 215, just west of Green Valley Parkway, overlooking the Las Vegas valley. For more information or a tour of Vegas View Recording contact Bobby Ferrari at 702-596-3219.

The studio officially opens for business on April 2. A grand opening is planned during the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas on April 9.
