The spot has always carried an element of mystery, with most artists recording in complete secrecy. “This is when an artist is at their most vulnerable. They’re working on material that may or may not make their career.”

It's not normal, but I've tuned 14 control rooms in the past eight weeks. I typically tune the rooms we design, but to have this many significant rooms either come on line, be renovated or have the monitors updated to require tuning in this period of time is unprecedented for me. Oh well, always fun to listen to loud music and great systems!! Matt Marinelli (Coral Sound) is tidying up some wires for the new subwoofers we are installing in this Griffin Room today. The fun never stops..

Consistency is never boring — just ask Outloud Audio. Actually, this bi-coastal audio post production company finds the pursuit of consistency downright exhilarating. For Principal and Chief Audio Engineer Mark Kondracki, it’s been key to expanding from a midtown NYC startup to a slew of stages ...
