The Bastille is a recording and mixing studio + mobile recording service set within Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, Virginia.

Equipped with both analog tape and Pro Tools HD, the studio is aimed at providing a relaxed and affordable space while still offering great sounding rooms and excellent vintage and new equipment. We are located minutes outside of Washington, D.C. and within close walking distance of dozens of restaurants and markets at Shirlington Village.

The four work rooms have been set up with full-band live tracking in mind and are amply equipped to encourage creative recording techniques beyond the capabilities of the typical home studio without sacrificing comfort and character. Aside from the control room and 16’ ceiling live room, there are two isolation rooms (one reflective and one deadened) and a lounge. Additionally, we have tie lines running to the main room at Inner Ear, allowing simultaneous use of both studios (extra booking fees apply.)

The Bastille is a multipurpose space, easily adapting between full bands, mixing projects, and overdubs. We love home recording and encourage synergy between home and studio sessions – track your drums to tape here and leave with digital files for your DAW, or bring your projects in to take advantage of our classic amplifiers, great keyboards & synthesizers, and uncompromising vocal chain for your overdubs. Guest engineers are welcome by arrangement.
