Hi, this is the Exchange, the secret studio owned by the guy from Ambrosia you might have heard about. It’s really no secret that we have been turning out quality recording since 2003 and the building that houses the Exchange has been in operation as a studio since the 1970’s. Many of Milwaukee’s finest musicians as well as artists from around the world have tracked here over the years. Even the iconic David Bowie popped into to record here in 1975 when it was Star Studios.
After a complete revamping and updating of the building and equipment we laid down the first tracks here in Sept. 2003 and we have been going ever since. The original design of the rooms (designed by legendary studio designer George Augsburger , designer of the Record Plant in Hollywood) was completely revamped and refurbished by our team and we feature some of the best equipment, personnel and vibe for recording to be had in Milwaukee.
In our main tracking room we feature a legendary AMEK 2520 analog console on the front end, a console used by many legendary bands and producers, notably Mutt Lang (Def Leopard) and James Guthrie (The Wall).
In addition to our English console we have a bevy of outboard mic pres made by Neve, Peluso (custom), Focusrite, Universal Audio, Vintech, and Neotek as well as a formidable microphone collection featuring mics made by Neuman, AKG, Peluso, Milab, Beyerdynamic and Royer.
Also in house we offer a 7’ 6” Yamaha C-7 Grand Piano (the piano of choice of many major studios around the world) and a screaming Hammond B-3 with a 122 Leslie. A great selection of amps from Marshall, Vox , Fender as well as several boutique models to find a sound to suit your needs.
If you are interested in booking time contact our studio overseer Nicole Waters at 414-383-3972 (office) or email us a request to tour the facility and meet with someone from our staff of engineers.
