Converse Rubber Tracks Seattle – Avast Recording Co. 

Seattle’s Avast Recording Co. isn’t just a staple of the local scene—they’ve also recorded some of the most important alternative rock albums of the past 20 years. They cut their teeth in the early days recording grunge records, then went on to work with seminal riot grrrl acts and many of indie rock’s rising stars.

The studio provides a beautifully maintained selection of vintage and contemporary microphones, preamps, EQs, tape machines, and outboard gear. The control room is equipped with a historic analogue 36-channel Trident A-Range console from 1975 that, according to legend, is one of only thirteen ever made. Rebuilt by the studio’s engineers, this gem provides gorgeous highs and deep, immersive lows.
