organization are two key elements in this effort.
Who is this Assistant?|You booked a session and you come to the studio. You might meet a
complete stranger who is introduced to you as the assistant engineer
assigned to your session. You wonder if that person knows what he or
she is doing? To answer this question, it might help to know a
little bit about how that person got there.
The Yamaha C7 pianos in Studio B and Studio C has been refurbished. The Steinway B has also been retouched. The Yamaha C7 piano in Studio A is scheduled for refurbishment later this year. We'd like to get your feedback on our pianos. Stop by and test them out.
Artist Feature - An Ode to an Oud|
Joseph Tawadros, a renowned oud player, recently recorded in Studio B with musicians John Abercrombie, Jack DeJohnette and John Patitucci. When recording the oud, you have to pick up the roundness of its sound without losing its
harmonic sustain. Due to the make of the instrument, certain notes ring
out more than others, so there has to be balance of capturing those as
well as not letting the plectrum sound get in the way.
