Shaw Music Studios's facilities include a control room and studio area. The control room (also known as "the crib") houses the super computer, musical instruments, keyboard, studio monitors, and pre-amps. It is the heart of technical operations.

Built for comfort, the studio area or booth (also known as "the boom box") is spacious as well as very functional and houses the headphones and amp. In contrast to the control room it has a funkier look and provides an ideal acoustical space to accurately record.
