Sonic Ranch is a complete five studio, residential recording complex in a private country setting surrounded by pecan orchards, bordering the Rio Grande and Old Mexico.
We are located just 30 miles east of El Paso international airport.

The studios adjoin a traditional seventy-year-old Spanish Hacienda with 12 individual bedrooms, a workout room, dining rooms, band den, patio/barbecue area, and pool. There are four additional houses on the ranch providing 15 more bedrooms and other kitchens and living rooms. There are four in-house engineers with extensive experience and friendly staff which attends to meals and laundry.
