Hi! I'm Larry Kriz and this is my studio. Are you a band or a musician looking for a place to get some recording work done at a reasonable rate? You've come to the right place! I can produce a fully mixed and mastered product for you - ready for duplication and distribution. Or perhaps you just need a professional sounding demo in order to pitch your music to publishers, record companies, A&R reps or local club owners. I can provide what you need!

Please take a few moments to review the Rates & Terms and FAQ sections. If you have additional questions, or would like to book studio time, don't hesitate to call or email me directly. Contact information appears at the bottom of this page. Thanks for visiting and I hope that you will choose LnL Recording for your upcoming recording project.


Recording System

My main recording system platform is a custom-built Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) which has been configured specifically for multi-track audio production. I use a Sonic Core XITE-1 front-end interface. The primary audio recording/editing application is called Samplitude Pro X3. I also have Cakewalk Sonar Producer 8.5, Sony CD Architect, Antares Auto-tune and a host of other top-notch VST effects and instruments.

Detailed information about the various products that I use can be found by clicking on the icons below.

Other Services

Mastering -  Mastering is the final coat of sonic polish which is applied to a recording before you send it out for duplication or internet distribution. You can read more about this process in the FAQ section. Standard studio rates apply. An album's worth of songs can usually be mastered in less than a day. 

Radio Shows/Commercials/Audio Books - I can pre-record your independently produced radio show or radio commercials here. Also, any spoken word or narration type projects such as audio books, voice-overs, church sermons, comedy albums, in-store announcements or music, etc.

CD Replication/Duplication - LnL Recording is an authorized studio partner with Disc Makers - one of the largest and best CD replicating companies in the world. Call for pricing and information.

Talent Pool - If you need talented session musicians to complete your project, I can help. I've partnered with some of the finest musical talent in the Chicagoland area. The costs vary depending on the project. Contact me for more info.
