World-Class Recording Studio in New Hampshire



Latest News: Rocking Horse Studio Receives Best of NH Award.


Rocking Horse Studio is a premier recording studio in New Hampshire, providing world-class recording and audio production north of Boston. The studio combines the finest in analog and digital equipment with rooms designed by renowned acoustician Michael Blackmer. The studio spaces are large, comfortable, and inviting, perfect for ensembles of all sizes. Drums, piano, strings, and horns sound huge in our large room, while quieter instruments and voices often sound best when tracked in our smaller, more intimate acoustic spaces.

Our classic Trident Series 80B console is the centerpiece of the control room, which also features Pro Tools HD and a wide selection of boutique outboard preamps, compressors, and processors. Our microphone cabinet is stocked with vintage and modern standards, and our collection of rare, vintage, and sometimes strange keyboards rivals anything on the east coast.

Located in rural Pittsfield, New Hampshire, Rocking Horse is set on a farm of open pastures, apple trees, and berries. With quiet all around, recording at Rocking Horse becomes an artistic retreat, allowing artists to get away from distractions and focus on the creative process.

In 2009, Mix Magazine selected Rocking Horse Studio for inclusion in its annual "Class Of" feature, which showcases the best new recording facilities from around the world to open in the previous 12 months. In 2014, Rocking Horse Studio producer Brian Coombes was nominated for a "Producer of the Year" award at the New England Music Awards and received two Emmy Award nominations for his work with WMUR-TV Channel 9 in Manchester, NH.
