"Your control room sounds very, very good, definitely one of the better rooms I have been in. I brought in my own monitors which I know the sound of very well and was extremely pleased with how well they translated. I was able to listen to our tracks for three days straight at around 65-90db and not have any fatigue. When I took the tracks home and played them in my own control room, there were no surprises, it was exactly how I had heard it at your studio. You really made us feel very welcome and at home." Sean Beresford ~ Producer, Engineer

This control room is one of the truest sounding control rooms found anywhere. Our clients assure us that the big, full spectrum sound heard in Control Room "A" translates accurately to the rest of the world. You can just relax and trust your ears. Control room "A" is deep enough to allow bass waves to fully develop and large enough to allow artists to set up instruments & overdub in it when needed.

"While completing some bass overdubs in the main control room I was amazed at the clarity of the bass response. The low-B on my five string was present in a way I had not experienced in a long, long time. Very impressed and highly recommended!" Michael Lazarus ~ Bassist, Producer, Engineer

control room A

"Laughing Tiger is my favorite world class recording studio in Northern California. I can always depend on a clean, meticulously maintained studio. Studio, "A" has a large, comfortable control room and an SSL 4000 G+ with all E series EQ's and moving faders! This is a great sounding SSL amongst SSLs." 
Jim Reitzel ~ Producer, Engineer

"This is one of the very best sounding control rooms I have ever worked in! Kudos!" 
Dave Schiffman ~ Producer, Engineer

"Laughing Tiger allows you to take your mixes out of the box and onto an SSL. You get the tactile feel of a mixing console and it's so much faster grabbing faders and knobs instead of scrolling up and down your session in Pro Tools. The vintage outboard gear selection gives you that sound you can only get with analog gear." 
Tyler Crowder ~ Producer, Engineer
