Mixer/tracking engineer David “DibS” Shackney has opened the doors to DibS Reaction, an independent Pro Tools-based mixing suite inside New York City-based EngineRoom Audio. DibS Reaction revved up its presence at EngineRoom with recent work on Avril Lavigne’s Let Go, four songs for Diana King’s latest album and a radio mix for Italian pop star Laura Pausini’s upcoming English album.
In addition to his engineering work, DibS composed a house track for KROC DJ Liquid Todd and then teamed up with New York City-based DJ Red Boy for an upcoming release.
Recently in at EngineRoom Studios, Christine Matovich manned the producer’s desk for a Parthenia Quartet (Beverly Au, Lawrence Lipnik, Rosamund Morley, Lisa Terry; www.parthenia.org) recording; studio owner and mastering engineer Mark Christensen coordinated and engineered the live recording (direct to a SADiE 24/96, and subsequently mixed and mastered the CD, Within the Labyrinth. Christensen relied on Tannoy PBM 6.5 II reference monitors, Apogee PSX-1000 converters, Royer ribbon mics, Universal Audio 2-610 mic pre and Neumann U87s for spot mics.
