Commodore Studios is a modern studio specially designed and constructed to control ambient sound during recording. Doug spent years studying the design of recording studios and used this knowledge to craft an amazing studio that makes it possible to fine tune the sound to suit the artist. His studio provides a large, comfortable environment for musicians while recording.
The studio is designed and fitted with only the best equipment and over the years they have worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry.
Doug Benson is the founder and manager of Commodore. He is an experienced recording engineer who has been in the music industry since 1992. His excellent ear for mixing is complemented by his artful mastering techniques. To do both mixing and mastering in the same studio is a rarity, because the mastering has to be neutral. However, Doug is able to remove himself from the recording process and this is just another example of how truly gifted this man is.
Located in Maryland in the quiet little burg of Thurmont – just a short drive north of Frederick. Besides recording, the studio also offers audio restoration services as well as converting analog media to digital format.
