kexp performance studio

KEXP's performance studio is 13½' by 19½', with a 9-foot ceiling. Isolation rooms are not used in order to provide the synergy of a live performance.

Performance room monitoring is via Sennheizer HD 280 headphones, powered by Rane HC6 headphone amps, fed by two stereo mixes from a Mackie d8b digital mixing console.
