Welcome to Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, DC. Originally started in founder Don Zientara's basement, the studio has been in continuous operation for over 25 years. During that time, virtually all of Washington's most widely recognized and acclaimed bands have recorded here, from Minor Threat, Rites Of Spring and Fugazi, to The Dismemberment Plan, Q & Not U, and Black Eyes.
We pride ourselves on providing a casual, comfortable
space for people to create and record music, which is
why so many musicians have made multiple records at
Inner Ear. Technology, equipment, and maintenance are
important to us, but vibe and energy have always come
first. So have a look around, and feel free to drop us
Have songs already recorded? Run it through our A-80 Studer 2-track, and see how the songs pop out! Adds warmth and depth!
Audio in the Studio course: Mics, sound waves, signal flow, digital audio, mixers, amplifiers, signal processing, intro to ProTools, Digital Performer, studio design, and a good deal of hands-on practice.
It is "1-on-1" training with each topic arranged in a 2 hour course in the studio here.
