However, once this state-of-the-art studio is found, a musical artist can see their music dramatically improved in quality and will see their music flourish. Matthew DeFreitas (aka Formatt) created such a studio in the heart of Miami Beach.
Bay Eight Recording Studios was founded in 2015 by Mattew DeFreitas. DeFreitas’ career beginnings began in Boston, in 2004, at a studio called “Boston Skyline Studio”.

In 2021, Bay Eight underwent a refurbishment, bringing in Ross Alexander of Synergetic Services to handle the redesign of the SSL room. The SSL room is now brandishing a brand new custom pair of Augspurger Duo 18 in-wall monitors, Barefoot MM27 Micro Mains, Genelec 8361A monitors, a vintage Pultec EQP-1A and Pultec MEQ-5, and a new Sony C-800G. microphone.
