2019 at Acadia

2019 turned out to be another year jam-packed with great players, a fantastic set of sonically diverse projects, and some awesome new studio upgrades. Our top new gear highlights from this year include 8 channels of aurora preamps (GTP8), a Wurlitzer upright piano, a Hammond SoloVox, an Ampeg SVT910 guitar/bass cabinet, an otamotone, and of course our new commercial-grade Bunn coffee maker to fuel it all.

We’re also in the midst of a studio re-wire, which, if all goes according to plan, will end with the debut of our brand new patchbay, custom designed (by Mr. Patchbay) to improve ALL of the connections we have between our gear. We’re so excited to hear the difference it’s going to make!

Of course, we’d be nowhere without the incredible musicians who chose to record and mix their records with us this year. Over the course of 2019 we worked on over 70 different projects, 40 of which were released this year. We are so happy and humbled to help support Maine’s music scene and we hope you’ll take some time to listen to these records.
