Pie Studios "...is about the music. . . and the people making it," says owner Perry A. Margouleff. Only 45 minutes from Manhattan by car or train, Pie Studios is located on the beautiful North Shore of Long Island, nicknamed the Gold Coast in the early 1920s.
Easily accessible from Manhattan, Pie Studios provides producers and musicians privacy and
distraction-free recording experience.

optimum level of acoustic accuracy," says Margouleff.

Studio monitoring is Augspurger Custom with Yamaha NS 10Ms, JBL LSR 28Ps and Genelec 1031As.

"The first time I walked into Pie Studios I noticed the casual and relaxed environment that's just right for getting inspired performances from an artist. With tons of old outboard gear, microphones and Massenberg automation on a classic Neve console;
there's a perfect balance between warm vintage sound and high-tech convenience. Most importantly, the sound that comes out of this place is as good as it gets," says Jimmy Bralower (Producer/writer/musician: Cyndi Lauper, Celine Dion, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Carly Simon, Hall & Oates and Diana King).
