The Palms Casino Resort’s new recording studio might be just what Britney Spears needs the next times she feels like getting an overnight marriage.
The masterminds behind the studio include George Maloof, whose family owns the Palms and the Sacramento Kings basketball team, and TV producer Larry Rudolph, who also happens to manage Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson.
Rudolph’s credits include such TV hits as Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica on MTV.
The studio will tie in with Maloof Music and Entertainment, a partnership with the Maloof family and Interscope Records.
The new 8,000 square foot, multi-room studio, designed by the New York-based design firm Francis Manzella Design, will provide a level of technical sophistication and client comfort unparalleled in the Las Vegas area.
The facility will include a large tracking and mixing room boasting an SSL 9000K, 80 input mixing desk. A second studio with an acoustically identical control room and a mid-sized overdub booth will be available primarily for mixing.
Through an exclusive arrangement with Harmon International (Lexicon, Crown, JBL, AKG and many other professional product lines) and an extensive selection of vintage equipment, the studio will provide a truly top-shelf selection of microphones, processing, amplification and recording equipment.
As it is an integral part of the Palms Casino Resort, the studio will offer client amenities that are not available at any other recording destination. The studio will be available 24 hours a day, and its users will enjoy the Palm’s famous VIP amenities.
The new studio will increase the appeal for recording artists in scheduling more extended stays in Las Vegas. The studio will also offer luxury suites "wired" to the studio for the convenience of recording clients staying at the resort.
There will also be portable DAW based recording stations that can be brought to a guest’s room for a more private recording experience. The new studio will additionally feature a screening room complete with concierge and private access. All these features for the recording artist/hotel guest are geared to make the Studio at the Palms Casino Resort a uniquely desirable destination.
