Stanley A. Smith, a composer, musician and producer with anextensive resume in record production and music for television andfilm, recently installed Rosendahl’s Nanosyncs at his Standard MusicProduction facility in Universal City, Calif., at the recommendation ofseveral of his colleagues in the business: “My music editor and a lotof other people have been telling me that digital setups work only aswell as the clock. They said, ‘You’ll hear the difference.’ I went forit, and there is a difference.”
Multi-instrumentalist Smith was formerly a staff writer/producer atTBA Records, where he wrote and produced several contemporary jazzrecords for artists such as Paul Russo, Alvin Hayes and Frank Potenza.While also having toured with Jeffery Osborne, Cheryl Lynn, CaronWheeler (Soul II Soul) and others, Stanley shifted his focus fromtouring and record production and started on the path to the latestphase in his career: composing for film and television.
“It’s nice to have everything stabilized on one good clock,”continued Smith, “especially for film and TV. I do the Bernie MacShow [including the recently completed new main title] and when I’mlocking to picture, it’s really important that all that stuff staystight. We mixed [the new main title] her and it turned outgreat—live horns and the whole deal.”
Having worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from originalcables movies, network television and independent features, includingThe Line, Catfish in Black Bean Sauce and TheVisit, Smith also recently completed his first major studiofeature, Ride or Die, starring Duane Martin and Vivica A. Fox,for Sony-Screengems.
