In the heart of Manhattan sits one of New York City’s most unique recording environments. State-of-the-art digital meets vintage analog, 2019 meets 1971, bits and bytes meets tubes and tape. The word Eusonia means “Home of True Sound,” and since 2000, Grammy-winning Producer/Engineer Scott Jacoby’s Eusonia Studios has been a go-to creative destination for the world’s leading major label and independent artists.
