Welcome to Studio Ray
Hi and welcome, my name is Ray Balconis, and I am a producer & vocal coach whose work has been on the radio and charting in Billboard for many, many years now. I offer ultra-high quality recording, mixing, & mastering in a very friendly, relaxed, & creative atmosphere. Here you will never get lost in the shuffle. Unlike the bigger places with many rooms & employees - and where you work with an intern or engineer unless you pay extra for a producer - I work with only ONE client at a time, as a producer, to make every performance, every song, and every project, the absolute best that it can be.
I am located in Maspeth, Queens which is on the Brooklyn
border just 4 miles from Manhattan. See the directions page for more information.
I have over 20 years of experience in the art of producing, and I know how to take your songs and give them all of the polish, punch, & "MAGIC" that they need to compete with what's on the radio. Please visit my testimonials page to see how happy all of my clients have been with their experiences here.
Remember, what makes a studio special is the person running it. A million dollars worth of equipment can't help you if your engineer doesn't know how to use it. I have real world experience in making music for the major labels & radio, and I can make you sound just as good as or better than anything out there. One of the most frequent & gratifying compliments that I get from my clients is that I far out perform other places in New York that charged them 2 or 3 times my price.
When you're ready, please feel free to come by for a free consultation (by appointment only). Meet me, check out the space, and have a listen to the many artists who've made their recordings here, and then let your own ears decide. (You can also hear samples on my clients page) So just email me or give me a call ... I look forward to hearing from you.
