Rarefied Recording, a San Diego Recording Studio

Artist Spotlight – The Killer Hz

The very first band to record at Rarefied was San Diego garage rock outfit, The Killer Hz.

House engineer, Roy Silverstein, was on duty. Drums, scratch guitar, and scratch vocals were recorded to the 2″ MCI tape machine. Overdubs were later added in ProTools and the 4 songs were mixed by Roy on the Toft. Being the first thing recorded at the studio there were a lot of lessons learned about working in the rooms, but overall it came out great. The band recently got a website up and running which you can check out here: http://www.thekillerhz.com . It includes a music player streaming all four songs we recorded. Enjoy!

Handmade Holiday – December 13th 2014, Crafts Fair and Live Show

Rarefied is proud to be a sponsor of a special holiday event this year.

Handmade Holiday is a benefit for the new San Diego downtown library, which is a beautiful addition to our fine City.

The event features tons of local crafters selling their wares for the holidays, but also will have a music component.

Curated by House Engineer, Roy Silverstein, the line-up consists of two groups that have worked at Rarefied and two that haven’t.


Roy will be running the live sound at the library’s beautiful auditorium. Come check it out this Saturday at the library, December 13th 2014, from 9:30am – 4pm (music starts at noon). More info here: http://sdfocl.org/handmadeholiday/
