Adam Kessler Adam (Eden Engineering) was the studio designer responsible for the superior acoustic qualities of Mirror Sound's recording rooms. Working with Ken and other consultants, the final result is a facility with favourable sight lines and non-parallel wall construction -- in short, a great space to record in!
    About Us
History 1985-Present
Mirror Sound Studio, located in Shoreline Washington, is a recording studio with a 25 year history of producing pro recordings for local area bands and artists. The key to success over the years is the production assistance artists get while at the studio. More than just a pile of great equipment, great sounding rooms and the  #1 DAW (Pro Tools HD), Mirror Sound prides itself on the help it can lend to the artist in the process of achieving great performances and capturing them with character and taste. Decision making is always geared towards efficiency and getting the job done right the first time and within budget. Being a studio of musicians, for musicians, definitely makes a difference when an artist needs to describe what he/she wants and why they want it. Should the artist need musical assistance and/or studio musicians, they've come to the right place. Mirror Sound musicians are 2nd to none and have the reputation of laying down tracks that make you smile. Over 2 years in the design and construction (1997-1999) , Mirror Sound Studio announced the opening of it’s 5th studio in it's 25 year history. A 5-room facility, it began operations in 1998. Mirror Sound's roots, go back to the early days as a 4-track operation in Cherry Hill, NJ, (just outside Philadelphia, PA,) in 1979. The original 4-track Mirror Sound soon went 8, then 16 and now has grown to become the state-of-the art fully equipped 32-track studio. The studio offers 4 recording rooms and a large Control room, offering complete 32 track music production facilities, full computer recording and editing capabilities, analog tape capabilities, midi sequencing and editing as well as CD mastering. Quality acoustics design (Eden Engineering), silent HVAC implementation and room to room isolation are some of features that make a Mirror Sound experience comfortable and enjoyable for the artists as well as for the staff. Easy parking quick access to I-5 and shops and eateries right around the corner make a Mirror Sound session a piece of cake.
