2015.11.05 // Holiday Madness

The end of the year is always an interesting time, and this year is shaping up to be pretty crazy. This month, we've got a couple projects kicking off with The Reign of Madmen and Dylan Razwick, and a fresh new EP from local alt-punkers Short Stories.

We'll be launching all of these projects with a fresh new set of preamps and converters from Audient and Burr-Brown. Quality is getting upped on a weekly basis here, so book some time and help us continue to improve this studio for everyone in San Diego! :)

Most every weekend is booked for the coming two months, but we're pretty open during the week from 11-7 daily! Hit us up and get your music recorded!

2015.10.05 // Spooky Schedule

In September, we launched a TON of package deals offered via GoFundMe to raise money for acoustic and functional upgrades to our control room, and to build an isolated vocal and guitar booth. If you're looking for an insane deal on recording, definitely head over to our GoFundMe page and take a look at what we're offering. We even threw in some design packages!

This month we'll be wrapping up a couple of releases with Michael Timog and Nothing Sacred, and starting vocal production with the new Everybody Knows album!

We're pretty open at the end of the month, but November is filling up quick! Hit us up fast to get in on the action.

2015.09.08 // The Perfect Storm

Cheesy title, accurate description. We're currently working on three full-lengths, an EP, and a handful of singles across half a dozen artists. This month will cool down a little, and we'll start booking out like crazy, but keep your eyes and ears open for new samples coming up soon!

2015.08.18 // New Photos

Added a couple new rows of photos to the site for those of you that are anti-Instagram. You can see the progress of the gear collection and of the studio improvements themselves! Get in touch to schedule something!

2015.08.01 // More Beautification

Over the last week, we inherited a ton (not literally, but it was a lot) of wood flooring from a friend, and after some careful planning (a slow afternoon and spur of the moment thoughts), applied a new floor to the "live room" here at Clarity! The result is a gorgeous wood veneer floor to spruce up an already improved live tracking environment! Things are looking GREAT!

Special thanks to Dan Thale for the weekend of manual labor on the floor and painting an adjacent vocal room! :)

2015.07.15 // Packed House!

July and August looking pretty good! American Rust comes back into the studio for another three songs at the end of this month, and we're working on a full-length with Michael Timog on a new full-production full-length! The Calefaction puts their finishing touches on their new full-length, and Nothing Sacred kicks off their debut EP! Busy and noisy times ahead!

2015.06.20 // Calm Before the Storm

Everybody Knows heads back into the studio today to start drum tracking on a new full-length album! Two full-lengths in two years, and at Clarity Recordings no less. Busy little beasts. Couldn't be more excited to see what's in store!

2015.06.03 // Cosmetics & Percussion

We've made some huge improvements to the visual presentation of the live room (read: garage) and we're not done yet! We're treating part of the room with acoustic filler, and we're placing a handful of folding baffles around to dampen reflections as needed. Things are looking good at Clarity!

Our first live room performance comes from our friends Just in Case. They'll be getting started on their 13-song full-length album with Clarity setting the mood via drum tones and tracking! We'll keep an eye on their progress to get those songs posted when they're done with the rest of the process! :)

"Sean at Clarity Recordings took us under his wing and gave us a comfortable, friendly, and professional recording experience. He is versatile, affordable, and truly loves music, which definitely shows in his work. This studio's ever expanding catalogue of cutting edge equipment keeps attention to detail the mail focus.
