The Pop Machine is a world-class recording studio located in the artistic epicenter of the Broad Ripple/Glendale area of Indianapolis, Indiana. Located within a mile of the city's finest restaurants, nightclubs, and art galleries, The Pop Machine is nestled on a beautiful wooded acre on Indy's north side. The Pop Machine offers many amenities just not found at other facilities. Musicians built the Pop Machine for other musicians; our equipment purchases, recording philosophies, and studio design are built for the specific purpose of making stellar recordings. The Pop Machine's owners toured the world's finest studios to create a vision of what would become The Pop Machine. The ideas have been implemented and result is nothing short of amazing.
