ABOUT US

OZ Studios is a new world-class facility in Manhattan’s Garment District. Owned by the highly successful multimedia company MBK Entertainment — which counts Alicia Keys, Elle Varner, Gabi Wilson, Daisha, Allen Stone, Anthony Hall, and SWV among others on its production/management roster — OZ is an elite, commercially available two-room production space which should prove to be an ideal environment for tracking and mixing. OZ was designed by John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group (WSDG), and features two relatively compact production suites. First is Studio A, a 230 sq. ft. live room, and 190 sq. ft. control room equipped with an SSL Duality SE 24 Input Analog Console, Apple Logic Pro Studio, Avid Digidesign HD3, Augspurger Custom Main Monitors and a wide range of outboard gear. OZ’ 150 sq. ft. Studio B control room has an SSL Matrix console, Adams S5X-V speakers and a 60 sq. ft. sound booth. Both studios are adjacent to a 600 sq. ft.-plus common lounge area.

OZ Studios is a world-class recording facility in Manhattan, NYC.
