Recording Studio Seeks Budding Engineers and Producers as Interns & Apprentices

San Francisco Soundworks is a newly established professional recording studio that attracts major label and independent projects to San Francisco from LA, New York, and all over the Bay Area. The facility features several control rooms, including an amazing drum room and the best equipped SSL 9000J mix room in Northern California. We are completely focused on making music and in particular on supporting a community of successful artists, producers, engineers, and music labels in the Bay Area. We currently have openings for both entry-level Internships and mid-level engineering "Apprentices".

For those who have never worked in this environment, our internship program provides hands-on training and experience in the daily operations of a professional recording studio. Excellent people skills are a must as well as an intense interest and dedication to learning the tools of your trade. We believe that the only way to learn about making records is to make records. We don't care about recording schools -- all we care about is that you are eager to learn and determined to make the most of your time here. Intern responsibilities range from opening the studio and preparing it for clients to managing and maintaining a vast inventory of high end analog and digital equipment.

Successful Interns advance to the Apprenticeship program which shifts their duties towards application of recording and mixing techniques and running sessions. Apprentices will have the opportunity to assist working engineers in making records and may even have the opportunity to develop relationships that lead to gigs as a 2nd Engineer, ProTools Editor, or 1st Engineer. Apprentices are encouraged to book free time in the studio and complete their own projects and receive individual and group training on the SSL, ProTools, as well as equipment from Neve, Neumann, API, Urei, AKG, Studer, etc.

--- You must be willing to commit at least 20 hours per week as an Intern.
--- If you think you are too experienced for the Internship program but want to discuss the Apprenticeship program, drop me a line. But don't waste my time. If you've never worked on an SSL console, you are not ready.
-- If you're already a working engineer or assistant, by all means get in touch and check out the studio.

The following is an excerpt from our Web site where you can learn more about the studio:

Please visit for more info.

Since opening last August, we've been excited to work with Alanis Morissette, Vanessa Carlton, Stephan Jenkins, Joe Chiccarelli,
John Cale (Velvet Underground), The Count, Death Angel, Brian Dobbs, Jeff Black, Dave Frazer, Prairie Prince, etc.

San Francisco Soundworks' vision is to provide world-class studio facilities for major label productions while nurturing a community of independent artists.

Our flagship, Studio A, features a new SSL 9072 mixing console and a vast array of vintage outboard gear and microphones. Major projects finally have the option to stay in San Francisco and mix on a 9K. Our convenient downtown location makes it a great destination for LA-based projects as well.

We believe the independent spirit of San Francisco is alive and well, and we are doing what we can to bolster and develop the local music scene. Studio B, C, and D are our artist development rooms and are priced to support the artistic vitality and sonic quality of independent productions.

Help us bring the music back to San Francisco.
