The concept is simple—take a beautifully appointed and well-stocked recording studio and make the experience of recording music come alive. The ocean has long been a source of creativity and an influencer in sound and music. Take advantage of a stroll on the beach in between takes to clear your mind and soul. The emphasis at Gold Pacific Studios is to record music with the utmost profession but to also motivate the artists to create and feel inspired.

With vintage and historic equipment including 2 analog Stephens 24 track tape machines, custom 30 channel console, vintage and modern microphone collection, a Yamaha G2 grand piano, Hammond A100 with Leslie 147 and a large collection of guitars and amps, the possibilities are endless. The studio consists of two recording studios. “Studio A” a 1000 sq ft live room with large control room and “Studio B” a mixing room with large vocal booth.

Feel at home in the professionally decorated lounge area, complete with kitchen during your downtime. The location is complete with a large array of restaurants and bars within close walking distance. The result from this marriage of beautiful surroundings and impressive equipment is promising. We invite you to come and discover Gold Pacific studios and be inspired to imagine the possibilities.
