Out The Box Records and two time Grammy winner Jim Tullio announce new recording studio
Butcher Boy is a state of the art marriage of analog and digital recording housed in a remodeled 1890's butcher shop in Evanston, Illinois, just north of Chicago.
Pushing against the trend of digital home recording, the new world-class studio blends the richness of ‘70s era Bill Putnam tube pre-amps with best of today's digital processing.
Grammy®-winning producer Jim Tullio led the drive for the design of the studio and the renovation of the butcher shop for OTB Records. The centerpeice of the new studio is OTB managing partner Chris Stewart's 1976 Neve 8058 recording console which enjoys a rich history including Steely Dan's Asia and Fall Out Boys debut CD recordings just to name a few. The building has undergone a complete soundproofing with a live room, new lobby, updated rooms and new wiring throughout.
With an aura of mystery and power all its own, the newly overhauled and completely renovated butcher shop offers a sound and character that are second to none.
