Australian producer and engineer, Jack Nigro has launched his new boutique recording and creative space, Sonora Studios. To celebrate the launch, Nigro has shared with MILKY his top tips for pulling guitar tones.

Located on the central coast, Sonora Studios boasts two customised spaces full of world-class recording equipment, including hardware from Neumann, Avalon, SSL & Universal Audio, as well as a range of in-house backline from Orange, VOX, Fender, Ampeg and a 1975 Ludwig drum kit. Having worked with DMA’s, The Amity Affliction, Skeggs, Dune Rats, The Terrys, Pacific Avenue, Middle Kids and more, Nigro has launched the studio in the hopes of creating a unique and memorable recording experience for artists.

“Building my own studio was something I first wanted to do when I was about 15 years old. Having my own space that I, and hopefully others, love creating in every day is a very special experience. I have always liked studios to feel relaxed, intimate and calm. I feel like this is the best environment to foster creativity and become completely immersed in what you are doing. We built the studio to cater for bands to be able to record live, a process I find very important for many of the artists I work with, and ensured our main live room space has a lively, organic sound to best capture acoustic instruments.” Nigro shares.

“One of my favorite aspects of the job is that we are creating bodies of art that will hopefully reach and positively impact many other people. Going to a show and hearing the crowd sing along. knowing you helped bring that to them is incredibly rewarding. When I work with artists and bands one of the first things I like to do is hear their references. Find out what tones, energies and vibes excite them. I then combine all of these references to help build an exciting vision with the band.”

Sonora Studios’ is a two story, purpose built recording facility, featuring ‘Sound Space A’, an impeccably treated live room & acoustically isolated control room, alongside ‘Sound Space B’, a secondary production & mixing space, with additional living area & leisure facilities attached.
