Engineer Louie Teran (center) gave Powder’s new album its final polish.

“Turbo-pop” band Powder ( dropped by Marcussen Mastering in Hollywood, Calif., to wrap up their forthcoming Continental Records release with engineer Louie Teran. Teran worked on the custom-built analog console in Studio B, with DA/AD conversion from dB and Prism. The charismatic four-piece delivered the album as Pro Tools files, with some tracks recorded on two Roland VS-1880s.

“When I found out we had songs on the 1880, I made sure [guitarist] Phil-X brought the units in, as opposed to printing the mixes,” Teran says. “I wanted to keep the quality as high as possible from those boxes. Also, it allowed us to make level and EQ adjustments to the mixes right in the 1880. It worked out very well, and it was nice being able to help my friends with their project.”
