Underdog Entertainment (L.A.) is set to launch its new recording facility with the installation of a Solid State Logic C200 Digital Console. The facility is a re-model of the original Tracken Place, with the C200 housed in the main recording and mix room.

Harvey Mason Jr., who is one-half of the Underdog production team, said, “We have been working together for the past three years and in this new space for about six months to bring it up to speed with our vision for the future. We really got hooked on SSL’s digital console power with the MT and we are expecting the new C200 to arrive this month.”

The client list for Underdog Entertainment includes Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Toni Braxton, Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson, the American Idol kids, Faith Evans, Tyrese and Brian McKnight, to name a few.

“We needed a console that would address the 96k bandwidth of the Pro Tools|HD system and that console is the C200,” said Dave Russell, engineer/mixer for Underdog Entertainment. “We not only need the higher resolution, but, because we are always working on multiple projects at a time, we needed a console with a complete recall/automation system. We basically needed to upgrade from our existing MT for the main studio.”

“We really like that the C200 retains the look and feel of a traditional console,” added Mason. “We like that the console gives us this incredible power in a compact design so the console isn’t stretched across the entire building.”

“The C200 was designed with this type of music studio in mind,” said Phil Wagner, senior VP at Solid State Logic. “We’re pleased that Underdog Entertainment has chosen the C200. This installation is the first in a series for U.S. music production facilities.”
