From its inception, Stirling Sound, Inc., located in Clearwater, Minnesota, has focused on the symbiotic relationship between the creative and technical aspects of Audio production and recording. From concept through completion, we recognize the need to be a "one-stop" audio sound source, so as to maintain creative and technical continuity for the client's audio recording project. Another foundational principle of Stirling Sound, Inc. is to provide cost-effective service without compromising the integrity of the end Audio Recording product. Our creative and technical team, guided by the diverse experience of Rik Stirling (President), seeks out alternative solutions to nearly every aspect of audio production and design. We see "usual and customary" as a very dangerous place to rest when it comes to the ever changing creative, technical, and fiscal demands of the current marketplace in the audio recording/production industry.

Our Audio production/recording facilities have been designed to offer the most creative and inspiring environment possible.
If you're the type of client that needs to immerse yourself in a recording project, we offer full on-site residence and facilities...All of this within minutes of St. Cloud, MN, and a short drive to the Twin Cities.

Our Audio Recording Studios and control rooms are acoustically sound and ergonomically friendly, and were designed to handle virtually any audio production/recording. We have the technical tools and talent needed for today's demanding Audio Recording Productions.

"In an industry that seems continuously challenged by assembly-line production, the artform is at risk.  As such, we're looking for gifted artists to partner with...  to make our services as affordable for these folks as possible to bring back the 'art' to the artform."
- Rik Stirling
Please forward to us your copyrighted samples of your work so that we can explore how we can build a package that will fit your budget, and meet our standards of professional audio production.  


We offer complete audio recording/production packages that include full on-site residence and facilities.

We offer "weekend" packages in addition to discount package pricing.  Of course, our existing recording studio built in 1995 (now referred to as Studio B) will remain intact and a part of the overall Stirling experience here in Minnesota, ready for video editing and production in addition to audio production.

We will work with any artist to give form to their creative ideas….  we can accommodate packages from full production to mastering, and anything in-between.  For example, you may have a digital recording system to capture your ideas, but do not have the expertise to bring things “to the next level”.  We can accommodate your needs, working with your recordings, or instructing you as to how you can get the best recordings with your system and refining things at Stirling, saving you expense where it will not compromise your artistry.

We just finished up mastering a project for the artist Ian Hilmer, gifted as both a musician and composer.  We're looking forward to hearing much from this "Americana" artist in the future, we have an audio sample on the site.   Skywarden is in final mix production, and we have some audio samples on the "audio samples" link to your left to hear the latest.  We also have TJ Porter's project prepared for release with an audio sample on our site as well. 
We've completed production of sound design for a No Greater Joy Ministries animation of their "Good and Evil" project trailer, along with tracking Fergie Frederiksen (see our testimonials page) for Italian artist Myland.   We completed production on Arlis Feser's work "Surrender" . We're very excited to be a part of these releases, and will have samples on-line soon! We've produced numerous other projects that we will link and detail on our site as things progress.
*We offer on-site optical duplication at our Facility! We feature a BRAVO XR CD/DVD duplicator and printer to assist you with duplication and screening of your CDs and DVDs. We specialize in shorter run duplication (25-250 units), and can duplicate DVD and CD optical storage in any file format.
