The Paper Swan

An overdub heaven. This room is connected to The Tracking Room (so is The Wilson Room), and perfect for producers, writers, and multi-instrumentalists who need a large assortment of instruments, but don't need to record more than one or two people at a time. Also, did we mention synthesizers? Because, yeah. Those are awesome.
