A BIT ABOUT THE STUDIO
Portland, Oregon’s preeminent recording space, Jackpot! Recording Studio has worked with some of the brightest up-and-coming and established artists since its founding by Larry Crane (founder of Tape Op Magazine/Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductee, 2019) in 1997. The likes of Built to Spill, Wooden Shjips, Sleater-Kinney, Sonic Youth, Spoon, R.E.M., The Decemberists, Stephen Malkmus, She & Him, Eddie Vedder, Battleme, Summer Cannibals, M. Ward, Quasi, Jason Lytle, Moon Duo, The Go-Betweens, and, perhaps most famously, Elliott Smith, have used Jackpot! over the years.
Employing a combination of analog tape and digital workstations (Pro Tools and Logic), Jackpot! caters to vintage tastes while keeping the studio technology on the cutting edge. Centered around an analog Rupert Neve Designs console, engineers can track everything from full band sessions in the live room to intricate layered experimentation by single musicians. Equipped with a dizzying array of guitars, amps, effect pedals, and drums, Jackpot! also offers piano, organ, Moogs, and old school effects units like plate and spring reverbs and tape delays.
Jackpot! continues to be highly respected both locally and nationally. Voted Willamette Week’s “Best of 2015, 2016, & 2017”, the studio frequently hosts touring acts and out-of-town musicians looking for a place to record sessions in Portland and take advantage of our experience, equipment, and expertise. Make it sound like a record, not just a recording.
