What's the difference...?

Studio-412 is located in beautiful Candler, North Carolina. Less than 10 miles from downtown Asheville (and even closer to West Asheville!), Studio-412 is the perfect place to Sound Your Best. The location is an ideal creative getaway. Nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina - the views are inspiring. Once you visit, you'll see what you've been missing!

Founded by Garrett Derhofer, Studio-412 is a musical oasis for one reason: Garrett Loves Music. Garrett has been playing music all his life, and has been recording musicians for over 17 years - so he knows how musicians think, and how they like to perform. This is truly a studio built by musicians, for musicians. Come stay with us for a few days and see how the beauty of Western North Carolina inspires you!

One of our two Guest Rooms. Bed can be split into two Twin XLs, or kept as a King.

Workflow is comfortable, and jams last a while - because everyone feels at home.

The reason Studio-412 is different is Garrett's background. 8.5 years in the business world taught him how to run a business efficiently.

Sound Your Best - Studio-412

Those skills translate to the studio nicely. Sessions are well planned, tracks are organized logically, and that attention to detail enables musicians to work in the complicated world of DAWs more efficiently.

Professionalism, respect, and a positive, creative atmosphere is what we pride ourselves on. A comfortable artist is a productive artist.
