All 5 studios between the two locations will be connected via a secure, private data link to help the engineers and mixers work efficiently on all the shows at the same time.
The new studio will be located at 16th and Rockwell Ave and will share the 5th floor with 321 Fast Draw, The Exorcist, APB, Empire, Serving Time, and Simon Casting.
