The Rec Room


Eric Block’s personal studio space, The Rec Room, is well suited for bands, singer/songwriter types, and Voice Over work. Located on the outskirts of Dundee, IL, the Rec Room provides high-end studio equipment, with the comfort and low-cost of a home project studio (and of course, Eric’s wealth of recording experience).

Centered around a hot rodded Sony MXP 3036 large format analog recording console, tracks can be captured on a massive sounding vintage MCI JH16 16 track 2″ tape machine, or for those with modern needs, a rock solid Pro Tools HD3 or a combination of the two for maximum flexibility in tracking and mixing. 


From tracking and mixing an album, to recording an Audio Book with sound design, a radio spot, or anything in between, The Rec Room is equipped to make your project sound it’s best.
