Studio Details

After 20 years as owner/producer at ACME Recording Co in Rochester New York, Steve McNally relocated near Naples NY bringing with him his recording experience and equipment to begin construction on a state of the art recording facility.

  • Created with the idea of an artist’s retreat
  • Sits on 10 acres with miles of surrounding trails
  • Woodland setting invites creativity and freedom to capture the artists’ vision
  • Recording facility is housed in a 1984 Amish-built barn painstakingly retrofitted utilizing 40 years of studio experience
  • Features a gabled-ceiling main recording room, 3 isolation booths (1 accommodating a baby grand piano), upper balcony for videography or still photography, control room and artist’s/engineer’s quarters
  • 10 minutes from Naples, surrounded by the New York Finger Lakes Region
