Studio

A comfortable space to create — with great instruments and gear

Catapult Sound is a full service, professional recording studio on a quiet street in North Wales, PA — about an hour north of Philadelphia. We're a good mix between analog and digital recording, offering 24 tracks of simultaneous recording (Pro Tools), a large format analog console, plenty of outboard gear and a wide range of instruments to choose from.

Our live room is large enough to comfortably fit an entire band, and the control room features a couch for your sitting pleasure. We have lounge for band members to relax in with a couch, a tv, and both Wii and Playstation 2. We also have WiFi for web stuff. There are several bars and restaurants in town and a large park one block over.
