Buddy Guy shakes hands with Doug McBride.

Buddy Guy shakes hands with Doug McBride.

Blues guitar legend Buddy Guy visited Gravity Studios in his hometown of Chicago to record for an upcoming Jive Records release. Studio owner/engineer Doug McBride recorded the session in Gravity Studio A. Guy was the first to be tracked on the facility's new Neve 5088 console…Stephen Marsh announced the opening of his new Stephen Marsh Mastering suite (Hollywood). Marsh's previous studio was in the RCA/Radio Recorders, which building owners plan to demolish. Marsh and engineer Stephanie Villa are pleased to have found “…an existing acoustic space we could simply treat for sound as opposed to needing a full build-out,” Marsh says…Producer/engineer/mixer Dave Fortman and artist-development executive Gene Joanen have opened a new Balance Studios in the New Orleans suburb of Mandeville. The original Balance, which is situated in NOLA, is still in business, as it has been since only one month after Katrina, but the partners had long felt they needed more space. The new studio was designed by Walters Storyk Design Group and is built into a 4,000-square-foot warehouse. It is equipped with an SSL 4000 GF+ board, Pro Tools HD and Dynaudio mains — all provided by Professional Audio Design.
