Just wanted to write a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you last week, and that your professionalism, expertise, and manner were really a pleasure and I hope we can have that experience again. You're quite a good pro tools op as well (option "C" baby!!!!). Please tell James we had a great experience and hope there will be many more times!

As I began my career as a songwriter and performer in NYC, James was a strong source of support from the very start. When we met I hadn't yet established my own artistic identity and wasn't entirely sure of where I fit in the professional music world. I grew up with the sounds of Motown, soul and disco in my head and hands, but I didn't really know how to bring those sounds to life. I had drive and raw ability, but I lacked finesse, confidence and professional experience.
James had great faith in my talent. He nurtured me and helped me build a path to success. He and his team have worked diligently with me, side by side, helping me put together many of the pieces I need as an independent artist - everything from recording an album, building a fan base, securing endorsements and press, developing a college booking strategy, helping to facilitate placements of my songs in TV and film, and establishing many other key professional relationships. Many of his ideas were non-traditional (some might even say radical), but most of them have paid off in ways we would never have imagined.
He was vital in helping me identify my audience, encouraging me to always be true to myself as a person and an artist and helping me find my sound. He helped me figure out how to reach my goals: strategies which we have used every step of the way to move my career forward. With James’ help I have a record I love, a loyal and growing fan base and I’ve been able to make a living as a touring artist!

I would like to congratulate you on a fantastic job working with my son, music artist Mat Brandon.
Mat came to you a few years back, as a thirteen year old with some songs and melodies. Today he is an up and coming music artist, with some great songs and a CD on iTunes. I doubt very much anyone else would of have taken the time, over a few years and countless hours, to see the material blossom from an idea and melody into a major accomplishment for a kid now entering college.
- You provided guidance from the beginning, helping develop the songs to the point where they are commercially viable.
- His experience was invaluable in learning about the music business and production.
- An opportunity working with established studio musicians.
- You have provided guidance and marketing ideas, developing branding and a fantastic myspace page where his fans can view his material and purchase his work.
- Your dedication and work with Mat also blossomed into a friendship and long lasting relationship.
- Mat's music work also allowed him to provide his college application process with additional resource material and gave him a chance to be accepted where otherwise he might not have been.
Sincerly and best regards,
Howard and Mindy Neugeboren

I've brought projects to Threshold since 1998 and am consistently thrilled with not just the outcome of the projects, but with the journey and experience that is waiting for me at the studio. Threshold is like a second home for me. It's comfortable, professional, and fosters a very creative atmosphere. James Walsh (the owner) is an incredible supportive person of artists and really champions for quality. It's an affordable space that isn't pretentious whilst competing with and surpassing some of the "bigger" studios in NYC. They have all the gear you could want, a fantastic group of people that work there, and a beautiful acoustic piano. If you want your recordings to be top notch, professional, commercial, and have the personal touch then go to Threshold!

Have been working at Threshold Recording Studios NYC for a number of years. James Walsh and Jeremy Sklarsky are two of the most qualified and talented individuals I have ever worked with. This New York Cityrecording studio has the latest technology and equipment, an awesome grand piano, music producers on staff that are very helpful, and also provides one of the most comfortable working environments available. I would highly recommendrecording here. The songs I've recently completed sound absolutely incredible, and I owe the guys at Threshold a big word of thanks.

Very Professional. For 8 years I used Threshold as my choice voice-over recording studio for radio and television productions. The sessions, however simple, had demanding service requirements and required a keen attention to detail. Sessions always started on time, the facility was always clean, the staff was presentable, courteous and sensitive to a corporate atmosphere and the clients' specific needs. A very pleasant surprise from a grade A rock-n-roll facility. Clearly this is why Threshold has stood the test of time.

Only the Best. Threshold Studio in NYC is by far the best studio in NYC that I have used in the past 10 years. The environment is strong, comfortable, and provides outstanding gear. Most important, the control room is designed for maximum sound quality-what comes out of the speakers is what your songs will sound like on any other medium. I have recorded 5 full length albums at Threshold and a handful of singles, all with different engineers-as a Producer and Musician. Never has there been a bad experience in finding sounds or lack of creativity in creating new sounds. And as a Producer-never fallen behind in time because of Technical problems, which is key when budgets are involved (Chris Goercke)

Great studio, wonderful staff. Would definitely record there again if given the chance.

One of the last great ol' school recording studios in New York. Great vibe, great gear and a very comfortable place to work. Concrete floors are magic, best drum sound I've ever gotten.

Great atmosphere and a superb Baldwin piano, highly recommended for bands and producers!
Jeremy - Apr 27, 2011

Ive known these guys for a while and Ive never been disappointed by the level of professionalism, and talent this team bring to the table. As an artist, it is important to find a space in which you really feel comfortable and confident that your vision will be executed and delivered the way you imagined, and at Threshold I felt all those things. Its a true collaboration with great musicians resulting in great music.

Threshold has top of the line gear and an amazing team. I've used the studio for tracking and for mixing, and have always had incredible experiences. Detailed information about their equipment is on their site...

This is the place to make music of any kind. You will NOT be disappointed in the staff, equipment, or space. Perfect

Threshold was the perfect place for us to record our band's album. They know music, they know their engineering and production, and it was personal and enjoyable. It's like recording with friends!

I have been working with James and Threshold for over a decade. A great group of people that truly know this business. They serviced my clients needs as if they were royalty. It helps to work in a cozy, comfortable atmosphere. With their offices being located next to Port Authority, it could not be anymore convenient. If you are looking for a home studio in the big city, don't make yourself nuts searching the dense jungle of recording studios...just call and ask for James. Tell him what you need/want and I am sure you will not be disappointed. In fact, I am sure James will also become your "Go To Guy". Oh and BTW, if it helps, my assistant says ...and I quote..."he is absolutely adorable!"

Recorded my demo here. Incredible production for a fair price! Great people. James and Jeremy were so helpful in getting the best out of me. I could not recommend Threshold Studios any higher :
