The Author’s Studio

Jeff Rona works from Wide Blue Sky, his state-of-the-art composing and recording studio in Marina Del Rey, CA. It is a contemporary and unique space for creating and producing music.

The photo above is Jeff’s main writing area. Based around Apple’s Logic Pro X and the Avid Artists Series hardware controller, it’s a near all-software system, combining Logic, ProTools, and numerous plug-in synths and effects, all set up in 5.1 surround.

The studio also serves as a recording and mixing facility, meeting space, and various additional studios for composing, editing, and mixing music.

Hi Jeff,

This is my first time reaching out to you but have admired your work for some time (Whisper is one of my favorites). I’ve been doing some indie film and television work here and there with a fairly outdated home studio setup. I have a midi rig, some plug-ins and an old version of CUBASE mixing on a Mackie 1604VLZ to a cd burner. I am investing in a major upgrade and would like to know what you would recommend in a digital studio mixer and music software. I would like to stay with a PC instead of mac and I’m thinking about Pro Tools. I’m not sure if I need to go as far as scoring to picture, but any advice in that area is welcome as well. I appreciate any information you can share.

Thanks for your help!

All the best,

Oh man – I’m sure you don’t miss the S2000’s… love the SCSI patch bays!

What did you use the modulars for? Subharmonic stuff?
