Our Mission: To be the go-to studio for making significant records by finding talent, inspiring genius, and capturing magic!


TRIAD Recording Complex is considered by most musicians to be the best recording studio in RI and the best recording environment in New England. How did we come by this reputation? TRIAD Normandy Sound, our Warren RI location, has been in business since the late 1970’s. During that time, under the ownership and direction of multi-platinum selling and Grammy winning engineer/producer Phil Greene, recordings by many of the iconic artists and hit records of the 80’s, 90’s, and 2000’s were recorded at Normandy Sound. These hits include national and international artists (New Kids On The Block, etc.), as well as regional breakout artists such as Dropkick Murphy’s, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Amie Mann (Til Tuesday), John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band (multi-platinum selling Eddie and The Cruisers Soundtrack), along with hundreds of other artists. Normandy Sound is a hit making machine, and has been for decades.


Since being purchased and renovated by Tony Ricci and the staff at TRIAD Recording in 2012, Normandy Sound (now TRIAD Normandy Sound) is back in full swing, with Phil Greene as our Artist/Producer in Residence. Picking up where he left off, Phil and TRIAD chief engineer Matt Ricci have already had another Number One Hit single on the Billboard Charts with Tavare’s “Heaven 24/7”, and a Top Ten Billboard hit on the Amaericana Chart with Grant Maloy Smith. Talk about getting right back in the saddle!


While acoustics don’t change, technology does. TRIAD has kept the lovingly built and acoustically superb tracking rooms, with their varnished knotty pine walls and asymmetric design, but has revamped the two control rooms into state of the art digital setups. TRIAD Normandy Sound now features dual 27” touch screen control surfaces and high end Apogee converters. This system is fed by a hand-picked collection of the finest classic, vintage, AND modern recording gear. An extensive mic closet covers every need for any size tracking session. Finally, the studio features a full sized grand piano, Yamaha and Tama studio drum kits, and a variety of instruments and amplifiers to use on your projects at no additional cost.


In addition to our primary recording studio, Studio-A, TRIAD Normandy Sound is also equipped with Pro Tools HD and Logic Pro X in our Studio – B production room. Featuring an AVID Control 24 mixing desk and a 2.1 sound system, this is an ideal place to work out songs, track demos, edit, pre-mix, mix, or learn audio production and recording arts with our TRAC education program at a lower cost than booking the main studio.


What if you have lyrics written with some sort of melody in your head, can you still record? Absolutely! Arranger/Composer/Engineer Jon Brennan, can help bring the rest of your song to life in the Studio – B Production Room, as well as basic karaoke-style vocal over music recordings.


TRIAD WaveCave is our second location in New Bedford, MA.


This ground-up studio was built somewhat smaller than the TRIAD Normandy Sound location under the acoustic direction of Phil Greene. As a result, TRIAD WaveCave has one of the best sounding drum tracking rooms in New England. A well-tuned tracking room plus bunker-grade isolation rooms and an impressive acoustic reverb chamber define the sound and capabilities of the WaveCave. In addition to being a great room for ensemble tracking with lots of visual contact and a fine collection of instruments and amps available, the WaveCave has become the go-to studio in the area for Hip Hop production. Engineer/Producer Alex E. creates modern beats and coach’s vocal performances in such a way that has his clients becoming friends and coming back for their future recording needs.


Audio production isn’t just about the rooms and the gear, it’s also about people, creativity, knowledge and experience. At TRIAD you will find knowledgeable, well-trained, and professional staff who are friendly, helpful, talented and focused. Preproduction consultation and in-studio advice are free with every project. We respect your talent and your vision, we’re artists, we get it!


If you need high quality recording, mixing, mastering, song composition assistance, or an education in the recording arts, then TRIAD is for you!
