Right Track/Sound on Sound has completed the renovation of Studio A at its main location, 168 West 48th St. in New York City. The project follows the refurbishing of Studio C, which was finished last fall.
“With the completion of Studio A, we are well on our way to our goal of providing the best-sounding studios in town,” says Right Track CEO Simon Andrews. “Studio A is getting rave reviews from the audio engineers and artists who have already booked sessions.”
One of four music recording studios, Studio A has been equipped with Sound on Sound’s 72-input SSL 9000 J Series console and a full complement of outboard gear. The studio has been rewired and its large control room now has new work areas, including a Pro Tools quiet bay to abate noise from the system’s computer and hard drives. In addition, Studio A boasts new carpeting, paint and wall treatments.
Sound on Sound general manager Chris Bubacz adds, “Studios A and C are now similarly equipped so clients can go back and forth between the rooms seamlessly. The changes are also designed to give clients an improved recording and mixing environment.”
Bubacz reports that Studio A “was booked the minute it opened.” Audio engineer Cynthia Daniels was first in with two recording sessions for the New York Confidential Big Band’s new album. Hip hop artist Jim Jones was next to book time to mix his new CD for Koch Records. Now hard rock group Red Jump Suit Apparatus has moved in to mix their new release for Virgin Records.
