Timbaland records in Lenny Kravtiz new studio

Looking to make beats at your favorite hotel? Want to get into the booth while waiting for room service? The newly created Setai hotel in Miami offers just that with their own first class recording studio. The Setai Recording Studio (website coming soon) is located in a two-floor 2,500 sq.ft. penthouse suite in hotel, complete with ocean views and private outdoor patio. It has a Solid State Logic C-200 Digital Console and ATC monitors. There are two "live" rooms, a vocal booth, control room, lounge and conference rooms. The studio also has 5.1 high-definition audio and can be used for both film and video shoots as well as having its own director and chief engineer.

The studio exemplifies the serene Asian tone that defines The Setai with cast bronze, textured slate, and rich teak woods. Kravitz Design combines these elements with high concept vintage furniture, plush wool shag carpeting and custom hand-screened wallpaper to create an unexpected environment that is elegant, warm and luxurious.

Who created such a studio, one of the first of it's kind inside a hotel? None other than Lenny Kravitz. And who has already recorded in the studio long before it's grand opening? None other than Timbaland.

Looks like I need a trip to Miami.

The studio will have its own director and chief engineer, Matt Knobel. And unbeknownst to us, Timbaland, Chris Cornell, Mary J Blige, Jay Z and Cat Power have already spent time recording there.
