Welcome to Gator Pit Studio
Where your project comes to life
Gator Pit Studio is a recording studio that was started by Minnesota native Austin Ebner while still in college at Buena Vista University. GPS is based out of the Minneapolis, MN area and has been serving the area since 2017. Gator Pit Studio moved here from Fargo, ND after two years of serving that area and Gulfport, MS for a year. Despite originally being based in Fargo, we have worked with people all around the globe and country from Scotland to the Philippines and Virginia to California It is the quality of the final product and friendly service provided that keep people returning. Gator Pit Studio specializes in mixing and mastering using Pro Tools 12 and Wavelab 9.5. Through his dedication and tireless effort to improve, Austin won his first mix contest in 2018 and got in the top three for two others.
Some of the artists/bands Austin has worked with through his experiences are: Life Below Zero, Dylan Little, David Grant, 13th Chapter, Shotgun Facelift, Pastor Kynne Smith, Barnaby Jones, MR. 107, Sacred Creed Productions, David Orcutt, This Wild Heart, What Has Happened Is A Good Thing, Chase Harrison, Liberty Hall Collective, Cynth, Joey No Feelinz, DJ Dream, J-Solomon, The Olde Poets, DJ Lozo, Winter Calling, Michael "Mick" Rattray, Mr. Lucci, Old City Lights, Mr. Lee, and many more.

If you have found yourself wondering how we made a certain reverb, delay, distortion, etc., be sure to contact us today! We will make sure that you have the right plugins to duplicate it, and if you do, it's just a small fee of $2 to get access to that effect chain!
