10 Best Recording Studios in Rhode Island

10 Best Recording Studios in Rhode Island

Big Nice Studio

Big Nice Studio
Big Nice Studio
  • Sitting on a former textile mill on the bank of the Blackstone River built in the 1840s, Big Nice Studio is an all-around recording studio that offers tracking, mixing, mastering, ADR, and post-production services. 
  • The facility has two live chambers, open control area layout, a spacious isolation booth, and other smaller acoustic spaces. And they have tons of toys for the kids to play with when you go recording. 
  • Their rates are not stated on their website because they believe “every project has unique goals and challenges and in most cases, one price doesn't apply to every client”. This means you have to call to get the pricing information. 
  • Their sessions run from 12:00 to 20:00 including all setup and breakdown times. You have to allow time for them to make bounces of your songs and backups of your sessions as well. 
  • If you let them know ahead of time, they can accommodate any special equipment or piece of gear they don’t have. But judging by the list of instruments on their website, pretty sure you won’t be needing anything outside of those.
