Welcome to Engine Room Recording

Thank you for visiting Engine Room Recording! Specializing in audio recording, mixing, and mastering ERR offers a wide range of services at an affordable price. We operate on a small budget but with 8 years of experience in recording studios and almost 20 years of experience in bands; writing, producing, touring, and creating.


Engine Room Recording has access to two studio spaces for tracking, mixing, and mastering.
The Audio Kitchen, owned and operated by famed guitarist Neil Zaza in downtown Akron, serves as the large tracking room complete with a classic Neve 80 series, 32-input console. Couple with an outstanding mic selection and top of the line outboard gear by API, Empirical Labs, Burl, and others, you will be hard pressed to find a more professional recording environment in all of Northeast Ohio.

The second space at ERR (and featured on this site) is a home-based two-track overdub/mixing/mastering suite in downtown Kent. Complete with Class-A preamps and outstanding outboard gear as well as high end monitoring and software, this space works best as a mix room and instrument overdub (i.e. guitars, vocals, bass, keys) facility.

This site is a brief snapshot of what we do here at ERR. Please browse our pages to view pricing, gear lists, and hear what we do and please contact us with any questions or comments; we love to talk gear, recording methods, and the local music scene. We aim to gain your trust and business by providing a relaxed and creative environment, and we hope we can answer any questions you have.
