Discover Pique Recording

Welcome to Pique Recording! I'm James Meder, and I'm thrilled to invite you to my unique recording studio right in the vibrant heart of Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA.

As the driving force behind Pique Recording, I've dedicated myself to mastering a hybrid-recording approach. This method artfully merges the soulful nuances of analog with the crisp efficiency of digital technology. My commitment is to ensure that every project that comes through my doors leaves with a sound that's not only distinct but also perfectly aligned with the artist's vision.

Your Gateway to Innovative Music Production in Los Angeles

At Pique Recording, my philosophy is all about blending the best of both worlds – the timelessness of tradition with the cutting-edge advancements of technology. I have meticulously equipped my studio with the latest in digital technology, while also cherishing the classic warmth that only vintage analog gear can provide. This harmonious blend is my secret to capturing every note of your composition with both the rich depth of analog and the crystal-clear precision of digital.
