Carl Tatz Design MixRoom concept at new Vintage King Nashville (VKN) control room/showroom featuring the PhantomFocus System and Carl Tatz Signature Series by Auralex custom desk for the API 1608 console by Sound Construction & Supply.
Vintage King Audio's new complex in Nashville has chosen to implement the Carl Tatz Design (CTD) MixRoom concept to demonstrate the company's vast selection of high end and boutique outboard gear, consoles and microphones.
"Never before have audio professionals had the opportunity to make critical gear purchase decisions while making their evaluations listening through the incredibly accurate and revealing PhantomFocus System as part of the affordable and acoustically transformative MixRoom," states Chad Evans, one of Vintage King Nashville's two veteran sales consultants.
VKN sales consultant Kurt Howell continues: "For example, Vintage King Nashville customers will be able to sit at the console [which is currently an API 1608] in front of the PFS in the CTD MixRoom during mic shootouts while a vocalist is in the VKN Microphone Locker switching between any number of gorgeous large-diaphragm microphones and really be able to hear the subtlest nuances!"

Studio designer and PFS creator Carl Tatz, principal of Carl Tatz Design LLC (CTD), says that the inspiration for the MixRoom concept was to emulate the look, feel and performance of his award-winning custom control room designs in a turnkey application and at a fraction of the cost.
"I think we've more than succeeded with that," Tatz says. "By pairing the acclaimed PhantomFocus System with the Carl Tatz Sigature Series by Auralex, the MixRoom is a revolutionary concept that needs to be experienced to be believed. Its performance is without peer, defining a new standard for the audio professional at a realistic price point. The MixRoom can quickly and affordably transform a simple rectangular room into the ultimate monitoring environment—bar none."
