National Recording on SoundBetter

Comprehensive modern and authentic vintage-style recording services. Over 40 years of east / west coast & international experience, the most exciting selection of musical instruments in the area, and an historic 150 year-old facility make National Recording the choice of the Milwaukee area's finest musicians.

National Recording LLC, a music production & recording studio in Milwaukee, WI offers:

~ The most actual international record-making experience

~ Beautiful space in an 1870 historic building

~ Fine, well-maintained modern and vintage recording equipment.

~ The most (perhaps only?) interesting collection of CLASSIC & VINTAGE musical instruments and amps offered in any Milwaukee recording studio, at NO ADDITIONAL COST. You can neither rent nor buy such items in Milwaukee but National Recording has it covered.

~ One of very few studios in the world offering authentic 1950's -1970's style recording with period microphones, mixing consoles, tape recorders. All tube, live to tape!

We bring a lifetime of professional musical and technical experience supporting your artistic objectives.

We have many credits (and are a Gold Record recipient) for domestic and foreign indie record labels.
We have also done music for TV shows & commercials, sound libraries for software companies, sound design, foley and ADR for film.

We do not do duplication, video, photography, promotion, or marketing, and no, we are not a record label.
Legitimate studios do one thing, and do it to a very high standard: Music Production - including recording, mixing, and mastering.
