Welcome to Ravensworth Studios, a professional audio recording retreat and post-production facility located in beautiful Central Virginia. After nearly 18 months of blood, sweat, and swears…the doors are open! Thanks to all who were a part of the process. We are proud to have locally sourced the majority of our project and focused on the use of environmentally friendly materials.
The custom-designed studio is a newly built, totally separate 1.5 story structure. The main level features a fully loaded Control Room, complete with a handcrafted Console Workstation, by KK Audio of Los Angeles. The spacious Live Room, with vaulted cathedral ceilings, is home to a gorgeous baby grand piano. Rounding out the main level are the primary and secondary Sound Isolation Rooms. The primary ISO has dual monitors to mirror (or control) the main console…perfect for visual cues while tracking. The second level Loft has view windows overlooking the Live Room, and is accessible by an outside staircase and deck through a separate entrance. The Loft is a multi-purpose recording space that can easily accommodate a full drum kit or function as a production suite.
Steps away from the main facility, “Studio B” is a comfortable lounge area with sofas, fridge, and bathroom. In-home accommodations include a private guest room and adjacent full bath. Deluxe “B&B” retreat packages are available...with country breakfast buffet and gourmet dinner choices. The west side of the property features fantastic sunset views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A large, covered outdoor pavilion is the ideal spot for your wrap-up barbecue. Surrounded by over 16 acres of lush woodlands and scenic bluffs, Ravensworth Studios also offers plenty of options for camping and bonfires.
Owners of Ravensworth Studios, Gregory and Elizabeth Schoenborn, bought this picturesque property in July 2009 as the perfect spot to design and build a “dream studio”, dedicated to not only supporting the music community of Central Virginia, but also capable of producing top-notch audio recordings and providing HD film and post-production services. With the recent upgrade to a new generation Panasonic HPX-170P video camera, using P2 memory card technology, Ravensworth Studios can film and edit your next event or project. Photography services are also available.
Only five miles from the historic town of Scottsville, Virginia, famous for its location on the Horseshoe Bend of the James River (and just 20 miles from downtown Charlottesville), Ravensworth Studios offers a unique multi-media environment in a tranquil setting, enhanced by gracious hospitality. Be prepared to be pampered...and let your creative juices flow!
