M.A.C.E. has its own recording studio in Gurnee called Monster Mix,[3] which has been the location of the recording of some of the later Batio material, most notably Lucid Intervals and Moments of Clarity Part 2[4] and 2 X Again.[5] Earlier albums like No Boundaries and Planet Gemini were recorded at an old studio owned by the label, known simply as M.A.C.E. Studios.

M.A.C.E. allocates each artist on the label a number group, and all of their releases are given an issue number within this group. For example, Michael Fath CDs are all numbered as 3xx, from 301 to 310, and Lyden Moon CDs are numbered 202 to 204.
