Utah’s Crane Song Studio Features Carl Tatz Design MixRoom

Third Studio in a Row Designed by TEC Award-Winning Firm Carl Tatz Design (CTD) for Songwriter Monty Powell, Jazz Artist Anna Wilson

Songwriter Monty Powell (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum) and his wife, jazz artist Anna Wilson, called on Carl Tatz Design LLC for a third time when they decided to add a studio to their Northern Utah mountain home. The new studio, named Crane Song, uses CTD MixRoom turnkey technology. It features CTD’s PhantomFocus System to enhance a pair of vintage Tannoy concentric monitors.

“This is the third studio that Carl Tatz Design has designed and built for us,” Powell says. “All of them have been centered on the amazing PFS system, which has become irreplaceable for me in a mix environment. Each studio has only gotten better as Carl continues to hone his craft and lead the industry by a wide margin with his custom acoustic designs, his proprietary products and monitoring setups… Carl’s work inevitably leaves his clients in a space that is more accurate, less fatiguing and always ergonomically pleasing to work in.”

The MixRoom features a custom application of the Carl Tatz Signature Design Series acoustic modules by Auralex, along with the trademark CTD Acoustic Lens modules.  

“Over the years I have been very fortunate to have been called upon by several of my clients to design multiple studios as they either expand or move to new locations,” v says. “Crane Song is an evolution of the previous two rooms we designed and built for Monty and Anna. Each time, our evolving technology has allowed us to refine the performance of previous efforts. I wish everyone could experience this beautiful room.”
