White House Productions is a multi room tracking and mixing studio for artists that want to create their music in a relaxing and creative atmosphere.
Based in the downtown area of Shelton, CT, White House Productions is one of Connecticut’s hidden away treasures. One of its many special features is the expansive 750 sq. ft. live room, which is fully air conditioned and can accommodate everyone from solo artists to bands. To one side of the live room are two isolation booths which can be used for amp separation, or to house solo musicians or vocalists, and a third isolation booth situated to the side of the control room.
The control room is centered around a state of the art Slate Raven MTi, Protools HD3 Accel running on an Intel Quad-Core Mac. Highlighted within the control room spec are our vintage selection of microphones, and mic pre-amps. Our great back-line is filled with modern & vintage guitars, amps, drums and cymbals.
The combination of a large recording space with multiple ISO booths, and a great selection of equipment makes White House Productions an inspiring environment to work in.
We also provide refreshments such as tea & coffee free of charge to all of our clients!
Studio Manager/Chief Sound Engineer
Nathan Sage has been involved in music in one way or another since the age of seven, starting out as a musician, first on piano then progressing to drums, playing in The Pretty Young Things from Cambridge (UK), and then onto a London (UK) based band called Hold Kiss Kill. In his early twenties, he acquired a greater interest in sound design and engineering, first managing Don Airey of Deep Purple fame’s production studio Rainbow Recorders (Don Airey Music Ltd) in the UK. While there, he contributed to over sixty albums, including Deep Purple’s latest album Now What?!, Saxon’s Call To Arms, Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock, and many more, in addition to engineering all of Deep Purple’s live intro music since 2006. Nathan worked with The Treatment (Universal/Spinefarm) as their stage technician during 2011. He also provided front of house (FOH) mixing for the Riverside Theatre Works, a theatre based in Boston (MA), where his work was referred to as “outstanding” and “totally professional” (Steven Friedman, recording engineer, MF Daisy).
While Nathan comes from an analog background, he is equally at home in the digital domain, being proficient in both Pro Tools and IZ Radar HDR systems, knowledge that he put’s to use on this side of the pond managing White House Productions, producing such bands as The Cluster Flies (Niveo Records), Robbie Jenkins (Surface, PM Dawn), and more. Additionally, he has branched out into audio post for Oh Yeah! (Seasons 1, 2, & 3), on SNY.tv, which won a New York Emmy Award in 2015 for Season 1.
Nathan has an instinctive grasp of recording and production that has only been enhanced by years of hands on experience in both live and studio environments, and will bring all of his talent to bear on your next music production or audio post project.
