globally limited is a small, project-based art and recording studio in Glendale, Queens.
We offer a variety of services including in-person (solo or supervised) sessions and remote mixing, mastering, and mentorship.
The studio is well-equipped for a variety of applications, including multi-track recording, midi-driven experimentation, and one-on-one production, mixing, mastering, or songwriting sessions.

- Want to get better using Ableton live, plugins, or other software.
- Want to learn how to dj with vinyl or CDJs or just want to record a mix.

gearOur studio is designed to be a flexible, modular space for making music. Everything is routed through a 192-point patchbay which is designed to work without plugging anything in, but can be endlessly reconfigured to your needs.
By selecting pieces which excel at one particular function, we aim to provide a space that can be used for a wide range of applications without hours of rewiring. You should only have to plug in two USB-C cables and download a couple of drivers to get setup.
patchbay / midi routing
You can explore the current state of our patchbay / midi-routing below:
We use Ableton for most of our work, but are also comfortable with Logic and love learning new DAWs.
We tend to hoard plugins, so we probably have the one you need, including gems fom Waves, Soundtoys, Valhalla, Tal, iZotope, UAD and others. If there's something in particular you're looking for, let us know and we'll see if we can find it for cheap 😈
The space is quiet and cozy, tucked underground with natural light filtering in through glass bricks. There's a large couch and plush carpet to stretch out on (sorry about the floofy lint in advance!), two expansive desks, a private bathroom with a shower. And if you're lucky, you might get a visit from the studio pets Ashley 🐕 and Lola 🐾
