A New Facility Building On Previous Success: In an MC article written before the opening of Zaven Grigorian and Ronald Girgis’ popular AMP Rehearsal facility in North Hollywood in 1999, the co-owner was described as “a singer/songwriter and producer…especially attuned to the needs of the up and coming artists he hopes to cater to.” Over 15 years and thousands of satisfied musician clients later, Grigorian is still going strong as he launches POP Music Studios, Inc., a Northridge-based facility (located next to a Guitar Center), which he bills as “L.A.’s first truly, fully equipped hourly music rehearsal, recording, video production and multi-media facility.”
State of the Art Products and Services: POP Music Studios is fully loaded, starting with top of the line gear--including DW drums, Orange guitars, Fender guitar amps, Aguilar bass amps, various brands of keyboards and Shure mic packs on the drums. POP has the latest version of Pro Tools (Pro Tools 12) in each room that are compatible with the FireWire system and Mackieonyx consoles. Each room has a 50 inch HD TV that accesses clients’ computer monitors.
A Dynamic Studio for a New Age: In addition to providing eight rooms starting at 350 sq. ft. POP Music Studios is, according to Grigorian, the first studio in the area to respond to the changing landscape of the music industry since the dawning of the digital downloading age. POP Music Studios also provides Green Screen sound stages and HD cameras for video production and live streaming. From its high tech equipment to its dynamic Pop Art décor (in the spirit of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein) and wallpaper murals on the ceilings, Grigorian calls it “a new studio for a new age with multi-media and social network capabilities to help musicians and artists navigate the current landscape and create a career that involves more than gigging live--and has over 300 parking spaces available.” He adds, “Quit your day job and follow your dreams!”
