Meet Justin

Justin has been playing drums in and out of professional recording studios for the past 20 years. More importantly he has been studying the best ways to utilize the benefits of the digital age in the era of home recording studios to now share with YOU.

The main goal of NYDS is provide songwriters with a comfortable recording environment at extremely low prices. The music industry has changed greatly with the advent of the Internet. The days of the $100,000 recording budget are over; however, with the availability of extremely high quality equipment at prices that are within reach, we can now make recordings that aren't sonically lacking and that can compete with anything made in those remaining multi-million dollar professional recording studios.

You are now empowered to make the recordings you've always wanted. Contact NYDS today so we can help you make your next song a reality.
