We call ourselves a “boutique” recording studio because we provide the sonics and amenities of a large multi-room studio facility and deliver the attention to detail and cozy vibe one would only expect to find in a dedicated project studio.
Founded by producer / engineer Erik Herbst in 1997, The Panhandle House has become the top recording facility in North Texas. The Panhandle House focuses principally on music production for the established independent or label artist. Happily serving Grammy winning and grass roots artists alike, our clients come from all over the greater Texas and Southwest region for our sounds and unique production environment.
Although we record digitally to Pro Tools to take advantage of its superior editing capabilities, the key to the sound we record is firmly rooted in the analog world. Our unique live room is asymmetrical, faced with cedar and rich in diffusing elements which allow acoustic instruments to breathe. Our signal path is simple, utilizing quality microphones and Neve Class A or other outboard preamps feeding directly into quality converters.
We mix through our Neve 8058, a vintage, all discrete analog console, not “in the box,” relying heavily on discrete and tube based outboard analog compressors and equalizers, not digital plug-ins.
