The Rise Recording Studio

Why Record at The Rise?

IT STARTS WITH OUR CULTURE

You are only going to perform your best if you feel comfortable, relaxed, respected, and inspired. At The Rise, our attitude is to surpass customer expectations in everything we do and to treat everyone the way we want to be treated, whether that’s a professional recording artist working on their fifth album or a brand new beginner getting their first taste of a real recording studio. When you record at The Rise, our people and atmosphere will help you get into that inspired creative “zone” where you’re at your very best, and you’ll leave not only with a great product but feeling great as well.

A STUDIO IS ONLY AS “PROFESSIONAL” AS THE PEOPLE RUNNING IT

An audio engineer is to music recording what a surgeon is to health care. A top-notch professional audio engineer will churn out a better product using free recording software and cheap equipment than someone less qualified using tools that cost far more (don’t worry, we use pro software and equipment — just making a point). Our lead engineer, David Devaney, is not only one of the top audio engineers in Utah but also has standing job offers from top studios in LA. David was the original founder of The Rise facility, when he founded it as Audio West in 2014, and we were fortunate enough to retain him when we purchased the business in July 2018. David is well worth his $75/hour rate (he even offers a student discount for $50/hour). But if you simply can’t afford David’s rate, we also have other qualified engineers available for less and student engineers for even less than them.

PROFESSIONAL EQUIPMENT

The Rise Recording Studio has a solid selection of professional recording equipment to help give your audio that extra little bit of headroom, polish, and punch. Among the highlights: Our signature microphone is the Neumann TLM 67 which we complement with the Avalon 737 pre-amp / processor. We have a gorgeous-sounding Yamaha digital piano that can record audio or function as a high-end MIDI controller. Our Behringer 32 digital mixing board is fantastic for both studio and live recording. And we have a large variety of industry-standard plugins and use Pro Tools as our primary DAW (though we can use others as well). Of course we have a variety of instrument and live performance mics and other gizmos, gadgets, pads, keyboards, and more. We’d love to give you a tour and talk about your projects.

Nate Gagon

Engineer

Knowing it would be useful for a songwriter, Nate Gagon began teaching himself audio engineering about 15 years ago and has since spent thousands of hours in the studio producing, recording and mixing his own songs as well as projects for others.

Prior to purchasing The Rise, Nate had primarily worked out of the large home studio his parents built in the basement of their home and the MIDI studio he created at his own home although he has also worked on projects in several other recording studios around Utah.

Nate plays the piano / keyboard and has experience recording many other sounds via MIDI-powered virtual instruments, including drums. He is proficient in Pro Tools, Cubase and Adobe Audition and has dabbled in other DAWs. Nate’s specialty in the studio is vocals, although he does have experience recording live instruments.

Nate has written an original pop musical called A Father’s Day with two production runs locally since 2015 and many other songs for various purposes.
