Radar Recording Studio offers the latest state of the art recording equipment in a professional 3300 Sq. Ft. facility.Radar combines a digital recording system with  microphones,  equalizers, reverbs,  and preamps to to get that really good quality sound. Their studio philosophy states, "Every project is important and every client is special to us. We want the studio to be comfortable and affordable enough for local artist and sophisticated enough for major artists." At Radar Studios, their rate goes for $50/hr. or $400/day. Which is pretty affordable if you ask me. Radar also comes with a recreational lounge area, so you have a comfortable place to think and come up with new ideas.

After talking to a guy I met at Milner Library, he told me a couple facts and information about Radar Recording Studios. Like how its ran by a man named Tizone, a platinum producer who's worked with artists such Mary J. Blige, Ki Ci and Jojo, and many more.
