OSSINING, NEW YORK, JULY 3, 2008â€”BiCoastal Studios has been on a roll lately, employing Aviom Personal Mixers for recent recording sessions with some of the music industryâ€™s brightest stars, including the Yellowjackets Jazz Quartet, Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, and progressive rocker Danny Brill.
While recording with Danny Brill, drummer Mike Sciotto had the opportunity to use the Aviom
A-16II Personal Mixer at the Ossining, New York studio and was impressed. â€œThe Aviom system makes it such a pleasure to record,â€? he says. â€œThere is nothing like having a separate mix. It makes everyone happy and is super user friendly; I really love it. It's a must in my studio and should be in everyoneâ€™s. All you have to do is use it once to know itâ€™s the only way to go.â€?
The Yellowjackets were equally impressed with the Aviom gear. The band was in BiCoastal Studios working on its new recordings with engineer Rich Breen. The Aviom mixers, normalled to the all-digital Solid State Logic C200, were used for the cue system during tracking and overdub sessions.
Following the success of this first solo CD recorded at BiCoastal, Something to Be, Rob Thomas is back in the studio working with producer Matt Serletic and engineer Mark Dobson, and once again is pleased with the results the SSL and Aviom are helping to produce.
"We installed the Aviom Personal Mixers in 2003 at the suggestion of the studio's designer, Russ Berger,â€? Hal Winer, owner of BiCoastal, says. â€œWe've done sessions with a diverse group of internationally acclaimed musicians, bands, and producers, including Phil Ramone, Neil Dorfsman, Bjork, Omar Hakim, Tony Levin, Antigone Rising, New York Philharmonic Chamber Group and Mick Guzauski, and everyone loves the system."
