When you walk through our doors at Production Deluxe, you'll be pleased to see a clean, comfortable and professional facility. Our clutter-free space enables an inviting, creative and productive atmosphere.
You'll be amazed with the hard-working, creative and talented production team we've assembled. In addition to scoring commercials and writing/producing jingles we specialize in the development of both youth and adult singers and singer/songwriters. From the first line of a song to the final mix, we guide the artist through every phase of the production process.
We strongly believe in the preproduction process and making sure that the songs are right before we hit the record button. We are traditionalists in the sense that we also believe that successful recording is made by having great songs and great performances and that the studio should be used to enhance, not fix. Our artists have been played on mainstream terrestrial and satellite radio and television, featured on compilations, internet radio shows, and have appeared in various articles and blogs.
Our Pro Tools HD III system provides enough horsepower for the largest sessions and our outboard gear leaves nothing to be desired for getting "that" sound including API and Universal Audio preamps. Naturally, our stellar mic selection (featuring the rare and sought after Blue Bottle and studio standard Neumann's) and acoustically treated rooms - including a live room and vocal booth - allow for the spectrum of sonic palates that our diverse clients seek and deserve.
"I knew the second I walked into Production Deluxe that I wanted to spend my time there making music. The atmosphere is casual, and the vibe is cool and collected, much like the studio's owner and chief engineer, Adam Harley. What impressed me most about Adam is that he's a consummate musician. No matter how many tracks we're working from, he hears things in the instrumentation that average ears may not detect, at least not on a conscious level. And if something isn't working,he is quick to grab a guitar or go to the piano and offer up fresh ideas. He is inexhaustible and will do what it takes to deliver a quality product in the time specified. Plus, if I need a session player in a pinch, he knows some of the best interpreters around, which is great to know. To anyone looking for precision-quality recording, I'd recommend Production Deluxe in a heartbeat."
"I am a singer songwriter and as most of us know creating music takes a great deal of craftsmanship. Adam Harley and Justin Gild are able to take my fragmented ideas and after some time and experimentation create something much greater than I imagined. I am able to come in with an acoustic guitar play a song. By the next time I come to the studio my acoustic song is no longer acoustic, it has a full band behind it! It's very exciting to hear my music come to life. Their huge guitar and amp collection assists the production process. Each guitar has its own tonal palate that gives personality to each song. Working with Adam and Justin has been both a privilege and a growing process for me. They truly enable me to perform to my best. My experience was great and the recordings speak for themselves!"
I have recorded at many different studios, with many different engineers in the past, and Adam and his studio are definitely the best of them all !!!! Adam is a real professional. He is completely reliable, and he knows his stuff inside out. Recording an album is a very intimate experience that requires a respectful, relaxed, and supportive atmosphere where the artist feels nurtured and appreciated. Adam understands this very well. He takes a sincere interest in his clients work, and is very passionate about what he does. This is not just a job for Adam, it is clearly his passion, and that shines through in the results of his work, which are stellar. I cannot recommend Adam and his studio highly enough!"
"Working with Adam Harley is a real treat. We have relied on Adam for everything from supervising the building of new audio rooms, to mixing music, to filming and editing video projects, to casting and producing radio and web-based audio-only material. He is a one-stop, professional, personable, and extremely reliable resource in SO many ways. We feel lucky to have found him, you will too."
"As a professional singer, I constantly have to record new demos for upcoming auditions. This past spring, I needed to record six songs on very short notice. Having worked with Adam Harley on a previous recording, I knew he would be up to the task. He understood exactly what I needed to accomplish and worked tirelessly to make it all happen. My recording sounds fantastic and I'm getting the auditions I want."
"I brought my working band in for two days to record an album that would capture our live sound and present it to best effect. Adam made the entire process enjoyable and comfortable, allowing us to get a lot of great material recorded in a limited amount of time. He then walked me through the mixing and mastering process maximizing the best takes. Adam went out of his way to explain what he was doing giving me the information I needed to make good choices and come away with a great product. Reaction to the CD has been unanimously positive and the warmth and intimacy of the band comes through in no small part thanks to Adam's contributions."
"Adam Harley isn't just an engineer; he has the ear and mind of a true producer. Whether I'm struggling with an arrangement concept, a solo or lyrical content, Adam always seems to have the ability to lead me out of a quagmire and get the best out of me. His confidence and easy-going nature are true assets to any recording musician."
I write and produce my music mostly from my home studio, but wanted to put real drums into the mix, for which I needed to record a pro drummer in a pro recording space. Production Deluxe was the perfect venue for my needs. Adam was extremely helpful in all aspects--figuring out my needs, prepping, and accommodating. He ran the recording sessions very efficiently, and we were able to bang out three pretty complicated tunes in one day. The output from the session was great--clean takes of all needed performance, with multiple mic'ing options for several of the drums. I was able to use those live takes and craft the sound I was looking for in my music.
"There are only a few studios I feel comfortable working in and Production Deluxe is at the top of my list. They have the most up to date state of the art equipment, and a comfortable and clean environment (conducive for creativity and mental focus). I could not have been more satisfied with the end result. Production Deluxe is where it's at.
"I am a 9 - 6 business guy who happens to love playing bluegrass music. Adam was very helpful in working around my busy schedule, and even more helpful in the studio making critical constructive comments that helped my ideas blossom. I was rather surprise how well he was able to articulate his comments on my music, especially in a genre that isn't really a New York staple. The turnaround time was great! Overall, Adam provides a comfortable and relaxed recording studio with a professional atmosphere and a critical ear that is in tune to his clients. I am very happy with my choice to record with Adam Harley!!"
"Adam was terrific to work with while recording my first CD "Here's To Life". He was supportive and very helpful throughout the process. He really knows his stuff and I highly recommend his work."
"Whenever I get the pleasure of employing Adam's services, whatever the project is, it becomes that much more enjoyable and that much less taxing. His professionalism, confidence and musicality are his greatest assets I've come to appreciate. His studio is a comfortable environment and a great space for creative expression; it's always at the top of my list for recording studios. I can't say enough good things working with Adam, you just can't loose."
"Always a pleasure, and always a good result!"
"I recorded some music for Adam at his studio very recently, and I really enjoyed the overall ambience of the place. I was pleased to see some of the latest recording implements and software being used, and also experience Adam's thoroughly professional recording approach. On a personal level, Adam kept me at my ease musically and socially, causing me to relax and record a good amount of quality work. I look forward to recording under Adam's direction again, and I gladly recommend his studio and his recording technique to any professional musician looking for stellar results."
"Adam Harley is an expert engineer and valuable co-producer who has worked on my debut album. He is not only a music engineer with expertise in recording/sound engineering, but is a highly valued member of my production team, adding a perspective that is always highly regarded."
This is one of the best studios I've been in. The Sound Quality is amazing, every song I did at this studio came out great. The engineer helps you with everything you need and guides you in the right direction. He is exceptionally skilled in Protools and doesn't use 100 dollar mics. Production Deluxe is the place to go, Adam is the Man!
Adam is the consummate professional. His studio is very inviting, comfortable and a great place to get the creative juices flowing. Adam's attention to detail is second to none and wants the finished product to be as beautiful, moving and exciting as you do. He is very engaged, personable and supportive. Highly recommended!
I am based in LA, but we needed to record some of our tracks in New York for logistical reasons. I interviewed a number of studios - including some of the most widely known in the area - but Adam's enthusiasm and professionalism kept drawing us back to his place as our best option. Happy to say he exceeded our already high expectations - awesome work that was timely and right on budget. A great and dependable pro is hard to find and he's both.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Adam. I met him for the first time at the session and he immediately put me at ease. He quickly figured out how I like to be recorded and created a comfortable environment for me to work. I enjoyed my experience and especially the results and will definitely work with him again. I'd gladly recommend working with these guys.
Adam was a gracious host and a wonderfully talented engineer who made the recording process a breeze - especially for our first recording venture as a band. His ideas and recommendations always proved right on target and valuable. The studio was comfortable, clean, and very well equipped ... and the rates quite reasonable.
