4D Audio is a professional audio recording and production company offering quality sound services in a thoughtful and personalized way. Our home-studio is unique amongst the NYC audio scene. We have a private-studio look and feel, but also big commercial-grade sound. We run a powerful 48-channel ProTools digital audio system (32-channel AD/DA and 24 inputs) centered around an SSL Nucleus mixing console. Our space has been renovated into two acoustically-designed studio rooms, which both provide floating floors and excellent acoustic treatment. The control room is free-standing room built within the pre-existing building (a room-within-a-room). Our processing tools include the Neve Portico II channel strip, SSL, Hairball Audio, and CAPI preamps, and a great collection of audio plugins. We have a wide microphone collection, and backline including drums, guitars, bass, keyboard, amps and percussion. Conveniently located in Astoria Queens, New York, we are only a 5 minute walk from the Astoria-Ditmars subway station.
The studio is built and operated by music producer/engineer Steven Pardo. Steven has been involved in commercial recording since he was 13 years old. He started at Cove City Sound Studios as an intern for 4 years, learning about microphones, signal flow, digital audio, and studio workflow. Afterwards, he went to the University of Miami to study Music Business. He spent much of his college time in the Weeks Recording Studio, where Steven earned credit as an assistant-engineer on the Grammy-nominated record “With Love” by Jeremy Fox. After graduating in 2013, Steven met and worked under the prolific 14-time Grammy winning producer/engineer Ron Saint Germain. By 2014, Steven began 4D Audio Productions. He has since worked on a wide range of projects, including music recordings for David Rothschild, Alejandro Elizondo, Mauricio Maestro, Dan Saulpaugh, and Kellon Anderson. He’s recorded voiceovers for both TV and radio, audiobooks, and co-produced a Broadway-star-studded cast for Wondery Podcast Network’s ‘Wait Wait Don’t Kill Me’, winner of a Webby award. Steven specializes in vocal production, sound recording, audio mixing, and mastering.
We have great relations with musicians, studios, and creatives all across NYC. Let us help you produce your next project!
