Legendary Producer/Engineer Kyle Lehning and Sons Jason, Jordan and Eric Greatly Enhance Both Dynaudio M3 Mains and ATC SCM 20 Near Fields with CTDâ€™s Proprietary Monitor Tuning Protocol, the PhantomFocusâ„¢ System, at Their Personal Studio, The Compound
Nashville, TN: â€œDamn you Carl Tatzâ€? was the subject line of the email from Kyle Lehning to Carl Tatz after he implemented Lehningâ€™s Dynaudio M3 main monitors with his widely heralded PhantomFocusâ„¢ System (PFS) monitor tuning protocol. â€œYou made the Dyns sound so amazing, the consensus here is that we need you to PhantomFocus the ATC near fields now!â€?
Lehning, a multiple GRAMMYÂ® winner, has been producer and engineer for country music icon Randy Travis throughout his career, with multiple gold and platinum awards to his credit. The head of Asylum Records through the 90s, he has continued to produce and record many artists over the
years, including acts as varied as Little Richard, George Jones and Restless Heart, and shows no sign of slowing down. He finished new CDs for icons Johnny Mathis and Jimmy Webb this year and is in the process of completing a new CD for Kenny Rogers and emerging artist James DuprÃ©.
The Lehning dynasty poses a quadruple threat in the new Nashville music scene, as Kyleâ€™s three sons have apparently inherited their dadâ€™s chops. Jason Lehning, also a multi-GRAMMY winner, is working with two younger artists, Matt Wertz and Mat Kearney, while the other brothers, engineer/producer/songwriter Jordan and singer/songwriter/actor/screenwriter Eric, have been awarded Best Picture and Best soundtrack for their film â€œMake Out with Violenceâ€? by the Nashville Film Festival. As if this were not impressive enough, a fourth Lehning son, Ryan (not pictured) whom Kyle describes as â€œthe only one of us with a REAL job,â€? is Senior Consul for the copyright collection agency SoundExchange in Washington, DC. Kyle notes, â€œâ€¦he likes the way the speakers sound tooâ€¦â€?
In the testimonial section of the PFS brochure on the Carl Tatz Design website (http://www.carltatzdesign.com), Kyle states, â€œCarl Tatz and his PhantomFocus System have managed to create a full-range, accurate, musical listening environment that gives us confidence that our mixes are going to sound the way we intend, no matter the destination. Heâ€™s done two systems for us and we love them both.â€?
