Mobile Audio Recording

Night Owl Recording has been multi-track recording in the Austin and central Texas area for over 15 years.  We use a custom, modular recording rig that scales to any project.  We come to you, where you're comfortable, to help get the best possible recording.

You might be surprised at the affordability of live location recording, especially alongside today's commercial recording studio rates. Combined with a high-class, high-quality rig, Night Owl makes recording sound so sweet that you should probably give us a HOOT
