Bailey Park Studio
Recording studio & production
"This studio is a musical instrument."- Brian Eno Having musicians come in to put their music down on “tape” and trust me to capture the sound and feeling of their songs is a big responsibility that I don’t take lightly.
I run full production & recording studio and am a seasoned musician with over 20 years in the business. I opened the doors in April 2017! I am new to this space, but not to audio recording.
I use a M-Audio 2626 Audio Interface and 2 Behringer ADATs, which gives me 24 inputs in high-definition 24-bit/192kHz resolution.
I track with Apple Logic ProX and have ProTools available as well.
I can even take this system mobile and record almost anywhere!
I’ve got some great guitar amps too, choose from Mesa Boogie, Orange, Vox, & Marshall!
There's also some other fun toys laying around including a 64key midi controller, a Korg Kaoss Pad, various guitar effect pedals, a bell kit, an autoharp, an analog 4 track, and other various percussion instruments.

Interview with Bailey Park Studio
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: In 2000 my band Captain i recorded an album called Sooner Than Now. I played guitar and wrote some of the songs, that was one of the best times I ever had in the studio with my good friends.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on my second solo album, this time with vocals and full length songs.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, it saves so much time and money. Analog is great, but it's over romanticized really. These days great sounding recordings are much easier to make.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I'll work hard to get the right sound for their song.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Getting to hear all kinds of different music. I love to hear what people are up to!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Did you bring coffee?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Find someone with similar tastes and a good personality with plenty of experience and go from there.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: MacPro, MAudio 2626 interface, a pair of SM57s, Les Paul, midi controller.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started playing guitar in the early 90s. After high school I attended Music Tech, in Minneapolis, MN for the guitar program and after that the Music Production program. I played in bands up until 2012 when a disability forced me off the stage. After several years in my home recording studio I decided it was time to get back to my dream.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Rock with side of everything else.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Mike Patton, his creativity is seriously out of this world.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't follow the "fix it in the mix" saying, get it right the first time.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rock, but my tastes are so vast that I can work on any kind of music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A light handed approach. Sometimes less is more... But sometimes, more is more and thats what the song needs. Maybe that's confusing?
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Capturing the sound correctly before mixing is a must. Other than that I just do what the song needs, follow my gut & my ears.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use a M-Audio 2626 Audio Interface and 2 Behringer ADATs and do most of my work in Apple Logic ProX. I've got a couple different rooms, and one with a great open area with wood floors. The reverb in there sounds amazing. There are plenty of guitars and amps around, I can pretty much get any kind of tone an artist needs. I've got some fun other toys too.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: For a producer I like Daniel Lanois, his work with U2 & Neil Young was really great. Nigel Goodrich is also high on my list... And Brian Eno of course, and I like his solo work as well.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Recording & mixing, sometimes they might need a guitar track or other production. I can help them fill out their song with some more instrumentation as well.
