For over a decade, Star Trax Recording has been a cornerstone in the development of
the Chicago music industry, from helping pioneer the Chicago house sound in the late
80's to engineering and producing some of the foremost rock-n-roll sounds in the city.
We've assembled a staff of specialists in sound. Experienced, educated engineers and
producers with different philosophies and techniques on making music -- supported by
a 24-track studio of world-class equipment.
Relocated in 1990, Star Trax Recording is conveniently located for easy access from
Chicago's two major airports -- O'Hare International and Midway. This newly built
complex is designed for total client satisfaction, including spacious recording and
control rooms, a private viewing booth, a separate lounge and kitchen area, and a
private parking lot.
Whether you're looking for fast food or fine dining, you'll find numerous restaurants as
well as comfortable lodging minutes away from the studio. Plus, Star Trax Recording is
only a 30 minute drive from the sights and sounds of downtown Chicago.
