Coming off of the recent Linkin Park tour as programming, playback engineer and keyboard tech, Dylan Ely announces the opening of his new studio, The Loop Studios (Corpus Christi, Texas). Ely and his wife, Michelle, co-designed and built the space with consulting from studio designer Frank Comentale. The facility is centered on a Pro Tools|HD5 system with Genelec 8050 5.1 surround monitoring, a plethora of outboard goodies, amps and instruments.
“The whole facility was built out of necessity for a space to work,” Ely explains. “So rather than just do a small mix room, we built a full tracking, mixing and production space. The goal of the studio is to help keep the local artist/talent here rather than them having to go to Austin, Houston or even Nashville in search of a high-end facility and experienced engineers with credentials.”
