Since January, Mix technical editor Kevin Becka has been working as the lead audio consultant for the Esquire House 2010 recording studio in Los Angeles. The 9,000-square-foot, $19M home in the “bird streets” of West Hollywood embodies Esquire’s Man at His Best theme throughout. The pool-house studio was a collaboration between Becka, Blue Microphones and New York designer Denise Kuriger. The room features gear from SSL, Avid, Genelec, Korg, VocalBooth.com, Waves, Steven Slate Digital, Perception Audio, Blue Microphones, TC Electronic and others.
