Production, Composition, Creative.
Mackinaw Harvest is West Michigan’s premiere recording and production facility serving a full line of products for musicians and businesses. The studios, completed in 2007, are centrally located in downtown Grand Rapids with plenty of free on-site parking.
Once inside, creativity comes easily in the warm pine-paneled rooms. Mackinaw Harvest Studio “A” is the only studio in the area with a fireplace in the center of the master control room. Anything but the typical sterile studio environment, at Mackinaw Harvest, you’ll feel more like you’re on sabbatical at a northern lodge….the perfect atmosphere in which to work on your next project. Our Studio “B” is a second room designed for your smaller budget projects. We feature ProTools HD as our main recording desk and include a full line of plug-ins, mic preamps as well as a nice selection of classic microphones by Neumann, AKG, Audio Technica & Shure, mic preamps by Avalon, Universal Audio & Focusrite & Presonus. Also included for your use are vintage guitar amps by Fender, Ampeg & Orange and keyboards by Korg, Roland & Yamaha. Need something special for your session? Just ask and we will be happy to get it for you!
Studio owner and producer/engineer Michael Crittenden is a graduate of The Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and has been producing records and commercials for 20 years. In addition to producing and writing, Michael is the founding member of the band Troll for Trout.
