Patchwerk Recording Studios is one of the premier recording and mastering facilities in the southeast. The Atlanta studio has recorded more than 60 gold and platinum albums. Patchwerk Recording Studiosâ€™ chief mastering engineer Kenny Daniels, aka Kenny Mixx, has worked with artists including B.o.B, Yo Gotti, Scrappy, Pit Bull, Yung Joc, Flo Rida, Rick Ross, T.I. and many others.
Kenny just finished mastering Sam Sneedâ€™s long-awaited Street Scholars album, the final album to be released on hip-hop label Death Row Records. All of Kennyâ€™s work is done using HARMANâ€™s JBL LSR6328P studio monitors and an LSR6312P powered studio subwoofer.
Kenny uses a minimalist mastering approach, which can be summed up in his philosophy of â€œPure music â€“ no hype!â€? Kenny noted, â€œIf a song doesnâ€™t require a specific piece of gear, then it is removed from the chain, eliminating any unnecessary processing. I donâ€™t like â€˜hyperâ€™ compression, over-limiting
or over-exaggerating the highs and lows. Too much compression makes a mix lose its transient attack, inner detail, reverb tails, front-to-back stage depth, air and side-to-side spatial cues. Over-limiting makes a song sound tiny, thin and weak.â€?
As an extremely critical listener, Kenny needs a speaker system that reveals every sonic detail in a mix. He values the LSR6328P and LSR6312P for their clean, detailed sound quality even at higher volume levels. â€œEveryone who hears them loves the LSR studio monitorsâ€”artists and staffers alike. I believe a big part of this has to do with the fact that the low-frequency drivers in the LSR6328P and the LSR6312P subwoofer sound really transparent, without any distortion. The tweeter also integrates well with these drivers, and the overall sound of the system is really smooth.â€?
â€œThe speakers not only sound smooth â€“ theyâ€™re extremely powerful. They really kick,â€? Kenny added.
â€œIâ€™m working out of a brand-new room, and we were able to design the room around the LSR monitors,â€? Kenny noted. â€œHowever, Iâ€™ve gotten excellent results with the LSRâ€™s in other rooms because of their ability to adapt to different room acoustics and placement situations.â€?
