WHO'S IN THE STUDIO?
We just finished producing A Conquering Soul's
new single, "Clairty". Also, be on the lookout for
Black Jack Suicide's album coming out soon!
We underwent a large renovation project adding 1,020 sq. ft. to our facility. The studio consists of 3 sections: Live Room A (1,020 sq. ft. addition), Live Room B, and Mix Room. Live Room A can house a full band for rehearsal and live recordings. Live Room B facilitates a more intimate and dampened room intended for small group configurations and single-tracking methods. Our spacious 700 sq. ft. Mix Room is equipped with Pro Tools, a myriad of professional plug-ins, two midi keyboards, 3 huge displays for real-time Pro Tools monitoring, and enough seating for 10 guests. The room has been dampened and tuned to make an excellent environment for mixing and mastering. If you would like to book studio time, contact us today.

HEAR OUR WORK
Mastering the Master
Note that mastering audio tracks in a recording studio is NOT mixing! Mastering is the post-production of audio material.
This includes levels brought up to CD and Radio quality, Equalization enhancements, Dynamic enhancements,
and overall balancing throughout every track.
Save The Memories!
If you have a record or cassette tape that is precious to you, let us back up and digitize your audio in .wav file format and on disc! We transfer music from records and cassettes for $20 per song and $5 per CD.
Baby On Board!
For extremely precious material, you can sit in our recording studio while we transfer free of charge. We understand the importance of your product and want you to feel at ease during the process!
Beats Are In!
With over 14 years of experience with Fruity Loops and Pro Tools, we have just unveiled the mask of some of the work we have produced. There is certainly something here that will fit your style. If not, contact us today and we will make one exclusively for you. You can even come in the studio and collaborate with us while the magic happens!
Have an idea for the layout and sound you want? Come in to the studio and we will produce a beat exactly how you want it. No matter how much time is spent, $175 dollars will get you a fresh beat and you will own all of the rights to the material!

A little about the owner...
In Hickory, North Carolina 2001, Figure Media began as a dream to run a small recording studio. A studio that was built from scratch by Ryan Conrad at age 15. Conrad developed an insatiable interest in recording. Shortly after his first band had some pricey low-quality recording experiences, he began to invest in his own equipment and learn the trick of the trade. In 2003 the studio was up and running. Conrad recorded lots of local bands for literally peanuts just to get the experience and the name out. From 2008-present, Conrad has been integrating web development and graphic design, which is just one more thing to make his and many other bands look and sound professional. Presently Figure Media Recording Studio is building a new facility and expects to relocate about 5 miles from their current location by the end of the summer 2017.
