Hi and welcome, my name is Ray Balconis, owner of Studio Ray Recording, and I am a music producer, vocal coach & engineer whose songs have been on the radio and charting in Billboard for many, many years now. My recording studio in Queens offers ultra-high quality audio and vocal recording, mixing & mastering in a very friendly, relaxed, & creative atmosphere.
Unlike the big NYC recording studios where you only work with an intern or engineer unless you pay extra for a producer - I AM a producer - with over 20 years of experience - and I work with each and every client to make every performance, every song, and every album, the absolute best that it can be. If you're ready to stop making "demos" and to start making "RECORDS," then you've come to the right studio. I've had artists come to me after years of trying to find the right recording studio in NYC, as well as studios from all across the world, and I've helped them all reach "the next level."
As a producer I can provide you with anything and everything you need to take your song from just an idea to a finished master quality record. Anything from providing all of the instruments, to world-class vocal recording, audio production, songwriting support, arranging all instruments and harmonies, recording, mixing & mastering, and complete professional guidance over all aspects of making a record. However if you already have your music from another studio and just want to put your best possible vocals over it, or even if you're just singing karaoke or making a video for youtube or Instagram, I can help make it great.
Because of my years of experience in the art of producing, 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. But don't take my word for it, please visit the studio reviews page to see how happy all of my clients have been with the level of attention and dedication they've received here.
Anybody can hit a "record" button, but experienced musicians know that what makes a recording studio outstanding is the engineer running it. A million dollars worth of audio equipment can't help you if your engineer doesn't actually know how to use it. I have real world experience in making music for the major labels & radio, as well as thousands of independent artists, and I can make you sound as good as anything out there.
And perhaps most importantly, I know how to make an artist feel right at home while at the same time inspiring them to be their best. Whether it be pop, rock, hip hop, RnB, or singer-songwriter, one of the most frequent & gratifying compliments that I receive from the people who've recorded at my studio is that they've gotten better results here than at other recording studios in NYC that charged them twice my price.
So no matter where you are in this vast, wonderful entertainment world - whether recording a major label album or simple music videos for Instagram, I'm confident that you'll find Studio Ray Recording to be one of the best recording studios NYC has to offer.
The studio is located in Maspeth, Queens NYC which is on the Brooklyn / Queens border 4 miles from Manhattan. For more information on getting here from anywhere in New York City see my recording studio directions page.
When you're ready, please feel free to come by for a free consultation (by appointment only). Meet me, check out the studio, and have a listen to the many artists who've made their recordings here at my studio, and then let your own ears decide. (You can also hear samples on my recording studio clients page) So email me or give me a call ... I look forward to hearing from you.
