Virginia Arts is a Full-Service Recording Studio



From its beginning in 1979, Virginia Arts kept a common thread through all its iterations: great sound. That meant using the best analog and vintage equipment, acoustically-tuned rooms, and experienced engineers.

While technology has changed, the bottom line hasn’t. Working across all styles of music using many classic recording formats, Virginia Arts still welcomes projects of all sizes and scope. Explore the site to learn more about tracking, mixing, mastering, and overdubbing, accessible to all.

Our History

The Studio

A completely patchable hybrid recording interface centered around the API 1608 analog console. State of the art digital meets classic analog for mixdown. More hands on faders, less clicking. Designed for outside producers and engineers to be up and running quickly.
