Welcome to Metallurgy Entertainment Inc. & MEI Studio. We've been in business for over 20 years and still going strong. Over the years we offered our services to both the public as well as industry professionals. Due to COVID 19, the studio is only being scheduled for use by labels, management companies and other industry professionals in a private capacity. Our engineers will still accept requests for remote mix and mastering work, and we are still offering our professional session services using our studio musicians.
Our hours of operation are by appointment only.
