Pro Talk: Making Friends In Germano Studios New York


There’s one thing that always preserves Troy Germano, owner of Germano Studios | The Hit Factory a little bit in today’s world: “Everybody’s building a studio at home. These are not studios! These are production rooms at home. They are not recording studios!”

How are artists motivated to come in and want to make records in Germano Studios? What turns the guys that work for Troy into incredible sound engineers? And which of the hundreds of gold and platinum records on the walls of the long hallway is the one that visitors look at most? This Sennheiser Pro Talk is about the recording studio as a perfect ecosystem for your music and the importance of fun and friendship.
