That was fun! I was trying to place the studio, which looked familiar, and found out that Compass Sound Studios is the house organ of Compass Records, owned by Allison Brown and husband Gary West. Compass moved into the building that once housed Battery Studios and then Dreamhire/Zomba Enterprises. My company has done business with both Dreamhire and Zomba (through an intermediary). Believe it or not, as the home recording trend matures, some of the old studios are coming back as "mothership" and mixing operations, offering any service the home recordists can't provide themselves, such as a tuned mixing environment or a large room for an ensemble. New independent labels that are popping up, anchored by producers, are finding it more comfortable to own a studio where there is less clock pressure as well.
