It took longer than was initially expected, but the sale of the four floors of Quad Studios (www.quadstudios.com) below its penthouse has been completed. In New York City, Lou Gonzales has passed the torch to Ricky Hosn, the 29-year-old former owner of Renaissance Recording (Tampa, Fla.). The studio will continue to operate under the Quad name and retain many key staff members, including operations manager Robbie Norris, assistant manager Willis Sowder and studio manager David “Ros” Rosner; Gonzales will continue to own and operate Quad Nashville.

While Quad's traditional commercial facility business plan will keep the studio largely out of competition with its new upstairs neighbor, Tainted Blue Productions, there are some definite similarities in its new-school outlook. “It means the world to me to get Quad,” Hosn said. “The old school is a lot different. Today, one person can engineer, mix and produce the whole record. The rooms I'm going to open up are for one person to start and finish by themselves, using digital workstations and virtual synths. But being able to put that with the old school — now I can take that to a world-class ‘J’ room — that's a lot different.” Extensive renovations to the studio and equipment upgrades have already begun and will be completed in early 2006.
