Peachtree City, GA -February 27, 2008- Situated in the artistic community of Silverlake, Los Angeles, CA, Kingsize Soundlabs offers a unique recording environment with an array of vintage as well as the latest state-of-the-art technology, which appeals to the alternative music scene. With high-profile alternative music clients including Jesus and Mary Chain and Australian band The Vines, protecting the recorded sessions is essential, and Avastor HDX FireWire hard drives are the number one choice for sessions that track directly to drives as well as back up.
“I like the robust, compact construction,” says Harry Trumfio, Kingsize Soundlabs owner and studio manager. “Our international clients from the UK have benefited from having their masters on the Avastors because the internal auto sensing power supply works perfectly in other countries.”
Kingsize‘s list of international clients have also included: To Spill, The Sleepy Jackson‘s remix of Yoko Ono‘s “Moving On” among a long list of some of alternative music‘s brightest artists.
In addition to the Avastor hard drives, the facility is outfitted with vintage Mellotron electro-mechanical, polyphonic keyboards, custom modified Neve and Trident consoles, Digidesign Pro Tools HD3 rigs and an array of analog recorders. Owners Harry and David Trumfio‘s aim has been to provide a comfortable and well-equipped workspace for their clients with everything they need from outboard processors to instruments–all in an environment that offers a positive vibe.
Burbank-based RDS (Recording Data Service), one of Avastor‘s major Los Angeles distributors, is the supplier of the Avastor hard disks to Kingsize.
