The Quietest Recording Studio in Salt Lake

Assisted by a nearly half-million-dollar renovation, our film and audio production is aided by floor-to-ceiling soundproofing panels, with accommodations made to include both A/C and set lights! That means no more unwanted sweat, (unless our Makeup department spackles you itself). Each room has been suitably sound-proofed, including our editing bays.

Robust Staging Areas for Video and Music Production

The crown jewel of our studio is a 1900 sq. ft. soundstage, with ceilings topped out at 13 feet high and cyc walls of full white and green, with scoops. Additionally, we have a 12’x50’ staging and green room area. Our control rooms come equipped with a digitally converted sound panel and electric grid and are separate from our audio recording studio.

Each room in our admittedly awesome building has an integrated network, which makes collaboration and creation easier than ever. And did we mention that we can accommodate a full orchestra?

Now that you have an idea of our set-up, what do you want to create? Are we filming a commercial? Recording an album? Shooting your next music video, or work tutorial? Whatever your imagination can conjure, we can make it happen. If you need the help of one of your experienced audio or video engineers, we have you covered. If you want to handle all the production and editing yourself, go for it. Regardless, our space is your canvas.

To the unsuspecting passersby, Ignite Studios is just another building around the corner from the haunted house (oh yeah, our neighbors are a haunted house). But to the movers and shakers in the media production industry, we are Utah’s best-kept secret; like dinosaur bones in the backyard. We’ve got your back!

Ignite studios FAQ

You can get a level of quality from filming or recording in a studio that would be impossible to replicate elsewhere. Here are some of the reasons that a professional recording studio produces better quality digital media:

  • Soundproof. No need to worry about environmental noise such as traffic.
  • Top-of-the-line equipment. Recording studios have better equipment available for use than most people can afford on their own.
  • Audio and video engineers. If you’re new to music or film production, an engineer can help you learn how to operate the technology in a studio more effectively.
  • Privacy and security. You don’t have to worry about passersby capturing whatever secret film or commercial you’re working on.
  • Creativity at work. Shooting in a studio allows you to build props that add color and significance to your video.

Yes, renting a soundstage or recording room can be very affordable, and the level of quality you get is more than worthwhile! If the benefits listed above aren’t enough to convince you of the value of recording and filming in a studio, we don’t know what would. If you want to know more how you can take advantage of our studios, give us a call for a free consultation at (801) 999-8249.

Each recording studio has its own pricing. At Ignite Studios, our hourly rates differ per studio type. If you plan to rent an audio studio with engineer, the rate starts at $100 per hour. An audio studio rental without engineer for half day (4 hours) costs $250, and whole day (8 hours) costs $400. For our soundstage, the rental cost for a half day is at $500, and whole day is at $800.

The cost of studio rental is due to the fact that you’ll be renting a well-maintained high-end equipment and facility. Plus, if you opt to include a professional audio or video engineer in your rental package, you’re paying for their expertise. Recording studios like Ignite Studios provide the best recording experience possible, from equipment to personnel, so you’re actually getting a very good deal.

A recording studio is usually divided into two parts: the actual studio, where the production takes place and where equipment such as microphones, instruments, cameras, and other items are stored; and the control room, where engineers, producers, and other production staff usually standby and manage the audio and light consoles, camera angles, and other aspects of the production.

At Ignite Studios, you can shoot a film, record a podcast, film a YouTube video, create a music album, or whatever your creativity tells you to do!

You are allowed to bring your own equipment into most recording studios. For example, at Ignite Studios, even though we have a complete set of equipment in our soundstage and audio recording studios, our clients may still require their own equipment.

There are no restrictions on the number of persons who can work in a studio. You can go by pair, or with a full production crew, including a director, writer, production designer, make-up artists, stylists, assistants, and more.

At Ignite Studios, our expert engineers they can help you set up and maximize our equipment.

No, smoking is not permitted in a recording studio. We at Ignite Studios restrict our clients to smoke outside our facilities. Aside from the detrimental impacts on one’s health, smoking also harms studio equipment due to the toxic substances of the cigarette.

Some studios just provide rental services for the production, while others also provide post-production services. At Ignite Studio, we offer post-production services. We believe editing is as important as pre-production and principal photography. As a result, we offer the state-of-the-art editing equipment available for you to rent in order to edit your final product. You can also engage our editor to assist you in getting the best result possible.

A soundstage (or sound stage) is a larger studio that is mostly used for visual production such as TV shows and films. A studio—whether a TV or audio recording studio and commonly referred to as a sound studio—is smaller than a soundstage, but both “studios” are soundproof and use nearly identical equipment.

Studio filming or studio production refers to any audiovisual media (including films, TV programs, digital content) shot and produced in a studio or soundstage. Unlike in open field, producers or advertisers prefer to tape in a studio to control aspects such as noise and lighting.

If you’re on a tight budget, we recommend shooting on location. However, if you have the funds but lack the necessary equipment, such as cameras, lapels, microphones, and lights, it is preferable to rent a filming studio.

Whether you should record at home or in a studio depends on whether you are recording for personal or business purposes. While technology has made it possible to record at home, renting a studio to record or film is a preferable alternative because it is soundproof and includes all of the required equipment (such as lights and microphones) to make your audio and video materials look professional.
