Asylum Digital Transforms Space within The Lofts at 7714

The history of 1,386 square feet of space in downtown Mint Hill.

1945 – A Hosiery Mill.

1963 – A formica countertop manufacturing firm.

1992 – Warehouse space.

2005 – A cabinet shop.

2012 – A Digital Recording Studio.

Who would believe that the same space used for such industrial purposes could be transformed into a digital recording studio?  Well, Scott Slagle did!  From the moment he stepped foot into the back left corner space of The Lofts at 7714 building, he visualized a complete transformation.  As the owner of Asylum Digital, he made that vision a reality with his own two hands.  Scott recorded every step of the way with his New Studio Build Diary.  Take a look!  It’s amazing what he has done to the space, taking advantage of its vintage vibe to create a wholly unique and eclectic studio for recording artists.
