About Us

NOLA Recording Studios is a new recording studio for the new New Orleans. Chief engineer and owner, Mike Harvey, has served New Orleans area clients since1998 at his first studio, Nashville Ave Sound Recording. The studio was flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, destroying much of the equipment and ending the use of that location. A year later, in 2006, Mike rebuilt the studio into NOLA Recording Studios, in the heart of Mid-City. By utilizing cutting edge sound production techniques, NOLA Recording Studios gives clients modern tools for creative expression and efficient operation, all while keeping the friendly, relaxing atmosphere that is uniquely New Orleans.

The New Age of Music Creation & Audio Production

NOLA Recording Studios is designed to enable clients to use today’s tools for music creation. Many of our clients work in a home studio with a computer or portable multi-track recorder, allowing endless time for the creative process. Our services pick up where your home studio leaves off. Maybe you want to track a live band, vocals, drums, piano or other acoustic instruments using our 32 channels of input with 13 Neve- designed Focusrite ISA series pre-amps. Are you creating music on a computer, but need more or better virtual instruments… or real instruments for that matter? Some clients use us solely for our mix-down and mastering services, which utilize an extensive collection of effects plug-ins, serious monitor speakers, and an engineer who knows how to use them.

We can help you prepare for sessions and organize time, so you work efficiently and comfortably. The sound of your final product is what matters most and our services are capable of the high standards that are the 'industry' sound of New York, L.A. and Nashville. Take a listen to our work and see for yourself.

Nola Recording Studios is available for use by qualified freelance engineers who are interested in bringing their projects to our facility. Call or email for details.
