Hip-hop producer Tim “Timbaland” Mosley completed a private recording studio in Virginia Beach. The studio was developed with his long time engineer, Jimmy Douglass along with some help from Walters-Storyk Design Group.

The studio is roughly 5,000 square feet and features a Neve VR-72 console and Pro Tools HD.

    responding to the post above (Hip-Hop? Hmmm”¦ What a waste.)if tim was a rockstar with a studio like that would you have made a sarcastic comment as such?yeah he built it for hiphop or whatever,he built it for the music that has outsold most of the drug adict rockstars in the last 10 year’s and for the music that has become a staple on tv commericals,and movies and culture period.if you have kids look at there itunes account or ipod and see what’s on there.I bet hiphop is there.So ,i hope you were just talking about too much space for a studio that size to be doing hiphop.

    Just because something is popular does not make it good. And I don’t have kids, I’m too young, but if I had kids I would hope they would have the sense to appreciate music beyond Timberland’s. Interestingly you agreed that the size of the studio was a waste anyway (I presume you mean because there is no need for recording space if your music require no musical instruments or musicians), so then why would it such a stretch for me to say that the quality of the studio is wasted on not-so-high quality music?

    1. This is a tour of Timbaland’s studio..


    2. Him recording live in his studio.. @ 48sec


    3. Him recording live in his studio again..


    No live instruments or musicians???.. do your research before you post comments like that..
    Both of you are talking about the studio being too big for HipHop which tells me you obviously have no clue what goes on in a recording studio.. Do you think Timbaland is that stupid to have a studio that size and not make use of live instruments?? Sure he’s got every drum machine ever made and uses midi and whatever.. but you’re naive if you guys think it’s just wasted space..

    I didn’t say he doesn’t record live musicians, I’ve heard his music. I was saying that zeeno0987 was implying it. Although in your videos I only noticed one instance of any instrument other than keyboards. Regardless, it’s not that I don’t know what goes on within a studio, nor do I think Timbaland is stupid, I really was actually saying (as simply a matter of opinion) that the space was wasted because of the music it is used to make… not how the space is used to make that music. That said, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that the majority of Hip hop is created out of midi sequences, rather than live instrumentation. Whether for good or bad.

    you are all being ridiculous, because hip hop uses live instruments and they need studios that big because sometimes when theyre done recording the song they need extra space to do something fun. if you had money and you were a producer, you would love to have a studio this big. and also hip hop isnt a waste of time because its probably the greatest genre of music ever made with so many different styles, its known all around the world. its the most popular genre ever. so whoever said that is stupid because hip hop can never be changed, duplicated, or replaced.
