The sonic Temple of Indianapolis

Since 2000, The Pop Machine has hosted platinum-selling music legends and emerging independent artists in addition to broadcasts for Sirius XM and iHeart Radio for landmark recording sessions.  

The Pop Machine is a boutique recording studio, par excellence, that features the same ultra high-end modern and vintage gear found in hitmaking studios from London to LA with Midwestern sincerity, work ethic, and attitude. The studio is the artistic home to GRAMMY-nominated producer/engineers Eric Klee Johnson and Marc Johnson.

Create in inspiring spaces and mix in our accurate control room designed by co-founder and partner Terry L. Monday and his Monday Designworks firm.

The studio's centerpiece is a Solid State Logic AWS 924 Delta SuperAnalogue console flanked by well-appointed racks of classic analog and vacuum tube outboard gear, effects processors, microphones, and analog tape machines with access to the owners' private instrument collection. The studio's tech stack includes Apple MacPro computers, Avid Pro Tools Ultimate and Logic Pro X digital audio workstations with the latest software.
