Megatone Studios is a professional recording studio located in Madison, WI. Formerly known as Sleepless Nights, the studio was renovated in 2007 by Producer / Engineer Paul Schluter and co-owner Darren Soderholm.
With experienced engineers, quality equipment, affordable prices and a comfortable atmosphere, Megatone has been doing top quality production work for the last five and a half years.
Bands who record at Megatone leave with not only great sounding recordings but also a greater understanding of their songs and even their own playing.
Producer/Engineer Paul Schluter has been recording bands full time since 1996 in these same rooms and has engineered, produced and mixed countless albums for many satisfied clients.
Both of Megatone’s owners and all of the other members of our staff are long time musicians.
