Celebrating 25 years of history in sound excellence

Welcome to Skywalker Sound, home of Titanic, Jurassic Park, E.T. and Star Wars where gifted terrestrials are spotted recording daily!

Most recently the score for Hellboy, the Grammy Award winning recording for The Kronos Quartet and Vanessa Carlton are just examples of exception recordings coming out of the world-class facility. The score for Spy Kids and Smashmouth were also recorded at Skywalker.

Located 30 minutes north of San Francisco and 15 minutes from Hwy 101, Skywalker Sound is a world away from conventional studio recording. The Scoring Stage was originally designed for film score orchestra recording, but the architects added unparalled flexibility allowing the studio (stage) to be used for any type of music. The walls have moveable panels that allow the reverb time to go from 3.6 seconds to .6 seconds.



Skywalker has an excellent staff of 1st and 2nd engineers, knowledgeable about any kind of recording, and full time on site technical support.  

Known for our "hi-fi" approach to recording, you'll find the latest in mic pre-amps, outboard processing, digital converters, and premium microphone cables that have a direct path from the studio to the control room.

The studio offers a Neve 88R with Encore automation and a 8x8 post panel allowing easy interchange between the Pro Tool HD's, stereo, 5.1 and film mixing formats.

Equipped with a Euphonix R1 48 track hard disk recorder, and two Studer 827 analog 24 tracks, Skywalker offers the best of all worlds.

The Skywalker Ranch Inn has 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments and there are several restaurants, a pool and fitness center on site.
