Building upon the already historical musical foundation supporting New York Cityâ€™s Landmark Brill Building, KMA Music continues to book a range of VIP artists to record chart-topping hits, with the help of AKG microphones. From vocals to instrumentation, AKG has been a go-to microphone in KMAâ€™s Studios A and B for numerous performers since opening its doors in 2007.
Utilizing AKGâ€™s C 12 VR Tube microphone and a set of C 414â€™s, Studio Manager Dave â€œRozâ€? Rosner offers his clients, ranging from Jordan Sparks, Jay Sean, Jay-Z, Neil Diamond, Paul Simon, Lil Wayne, Beyonce and many others, a selection of the most widely requested microphones in the industry at a momentâ€™s notice. â€œEach artist has their own personal taste, but a large portion of our clientele are very loyal and will request the C 12 for their sessions,â€? he said. â€œThe C 12 is a great microphone and really
gives a â€˜whompâ€™ to any artistsâ€™ vocals.â€? The C 12 is also used in recording bass drums, hi-hats and piano in the studio.
KMA also utilizes the Lexicon 960 Digital Effects System and the PCM81 Live Sound Multi-Effects Processor during mixing. Assistant Studio Manager James Spano explains that KMA has demoed multiple Lexicon plugins with artists and is currently researching a permanent Lexicon plugin system for the mixing rooms.
Complete with a striking view of Times Square and walls lined with Platinum Records, KMA stands as one of the most prominent recording studios in New York, offering its clients free-range use of the equipment, while other studios charge a rental fee. â€œOur clients expect the best service and hospitality, which is what we provide. Weâ€™ve made the investments in our equipment to ensure the artists and labels are happy and continue to work with us,â€? continued Roz.
