|About Energy Command Studios
Command Studios is a top-notch recording studio located close to
Chicago. Based in the heart of the northwest suburbs in
Arlington Heights, Illinois, the studio offers top quality
recording and radio ready CD production without the hurdles and high cost
of downtown studios.
the past 15+ years, Energy Command Studios has become known for the
comfortable atmosphere that allows bands, songwriters,
musicians, and artists to sculpt their sound. Whether recording
a full-length CD or working on a fresh set of tracks for a demo,
the studio has the flexibility to meet nearly any musician’s
needs. Full production services, songwriting, arrangement,
engineering, mastering, music editing, Pro Tools Mixing, drum gridding & editing, hard
disk recording, MIDI production, voice-overs,
direct to CD recording, live recording, CD one-off’s, and
a great live tracking environment are just a sample of the offerings Energy Command
studio has an outstanding live room, which takes advantage of
the building’s 15 foot ceilings and custom floating floor in the live room.
Bands can track all at once, or do the more traditional
track-at-a-time recording and overdub as often as desired. A
unique feature about the studio is the visibility through all of
the rooms at the facility. The studio allows multiple players to
see into each of the rooms all at once, while allowing
isolation. On larger projects bands can also set-up and play together in the large
live room to maintain the feel of playing live.

beats, to help complete a band sound. Recently added is the Amo
