Premier Studios

New York, NY

Premier Studios is inseparable from New York City recording lore. Located within the famed Times Square address at 723 Seventh Avenue, Premier is one of several studios that keeps the building humming 24/7 with music production.


Premier is firmly established as a go-to studio for major label artists recording hip hop, rock and pop, while also appealing to indie bands and labels. Criterion Acoustics (CA) was called on to tune the extremely high-powered four-subwoofer Augspurger monitoring systems in its SSL AWS-equipped flagship Studio A, as well as the two-sub Augspurger system in the SSL 9000J-equipped Studio B.


CA’s expertise in studio monitor tuning was an essential component of a recent comprehensive upgrade for Premier Studios. Dave Kotch, President of CA, oversaw a thorough tuning program for both Augspurger systems, which updated all drivers and processors. The result was maximized performance, power and accuracy of both rooms, confirming Premier Studios’ status as one of NYC’s true world-class music production facilities.


The Premier Studios upgrade and Criterion Acoustics were featured in this article on SonicScoop.
