Recording Services

Whether you need to record a lead vocal, background vocal, rap or hip-hop vocal, musical instruments, voice over or narration, Blue Thunder engineers take extra care during the recording process to select the right microphones, microphone preamps and employ isolation techniques to capture every detail and nuance of the source to ensure the highest quality recording. Every great song and audio production begins with a quality recording.

Our recording studio is purpose built, sound proofed and acoustically treated for a truly focused sound. Record in our sound isolation booth or in our dual purpose control room/live room.

Recording is easy, accessible and surprisingly affordable. Bring your voice and instruments or two track instrumental or full band and we’ll manage the recording process so you can focus on delivering a great performance worthy of recording.

We offer affordable hourly, half day and full day lock out recording rates. All rates include a recording engineer. Call or request a quote for other multi-day or full week blocks.

“Blue Thunder is NO JOKE. Relaxed yet professional atmosphere. Christopher Saylor doesn’t quit till it’s perfect…..and I mean PERFECT!!! DEF RECOMMEND!”

“Did some Acoustic Guitar work and vocals at Blue Thunder Studios! Originally planned to have a full acoustic production, but with Chris’s masterful production, we were able to fuse genres of acoustic rock, hip hop and electronic dance music. All in all, an eclectic masterpiece that should be gaining some attention in the near future! Thanks Blue Thunder Studios! Thank you Chris! ”
