Troubled Clef Studio...
a long history in the Troubled Clef Studio. Most of this follows
the gypsie-like lifestyle of its founder and producer, Myles Wakeham.
It started as an idea, then got serious, then got moved, then got
serious again, then got moved...etc...etc...etc.
Troubled Clef Studio is a smaller, more versatile and more powerful
studio than ever before. Its even been located in a CLOSET, proving
that technology minaturizes as it improves.
is interesting, and feel free to read through all the events of its
life and where it is today.
studios opened in West Hills, California (Los Angeles) (with HUGE
thanks to Jim Norman for all of his hard work in helping
build this studio!) to serve the Los Angeles musicians with an affordable
and comfortable studio environment. The studio featured a huge performance
room, and we recorded so many artists in there that its impossible
to mention them all. The studio gear was accumulated mainly by new
purchases of stuff from major name vendors and through associations
with various musical instrument and pro audio equipment manufacturers.
Wakeham, due to family issues, was forced to return to Adelaide,
Australia. He shipped the entire studio and all its gear in a 20
foot container across the Pacific Ocean, eventually ending up in
Prospect, South Australia (a suburb of Adelaide), where it sat for
a month or so.
a near fatal car accident, Myles Wakeham began the process of employing
contractors to build a 'super studio' in the Adelaide area. Troubled
Clef studios retained its name and eventually opened for business.
Clients from the South Australian market frequented the studio and
some very proud productions were created at TC Adelaide.
and family were eventually called back to the USA, where they returned
to Los Angeles and lived until 2002. Not much music stuff going
on at this time, as Myles is thrown into the thick of the DOT COM
boom back in software development
the studio was sealed up in its original building for 5 years. The
property where the studio is located is being sold as Myles can't
afford to keep it anymore, and the decision to either ship all the
studio gear back to the USA or sell it had to be made. For a very
short time, we entertained selling everything off. Then after a
20+ hour long flight from the Phoenix to Adelaide, Australia, Myles
decided to keep it all and ship it back to Arizona. We are currently
looking for some real estate to set it all back up again.
back up and running again! The Troubled Clef studio has been moved
into a spare bedroom in Myles' house and in fact setup so that it
is located inside a closet in that bedroom. Yes, that's right! You
can put an entire music studio into a closet, along with instruments,
amps, etc. and it works just great. All without losing any real
estate. Now these days Myles works mainly on scoring and audio editing
work, but has a new Alesis HD24XT digital 24 track system that can
be taken to a location for recording, and then brought back for
editing, mixing and production. Its a pretty sweet thing!

was moved to Adelaide, Australia, and now its coming to Phoenix, Arizona.
