Dave Amlen, Sound on Sound

The new union of Right Track/Sound on Sound (New York City) has been marked by the renovation of Studio C at the 168 West 48th St. location and the total rebuilding of one of the production rooms, now renamed D1, at 509 West 38th St.

Studio C has undergone a cosmetic facelift and has been outfitted with Sound on Sound's 72-input SSL 9000 J Series console. The main monitor system now includes an Augspurger array, with additional outboard equipment from Sound on Sound's collection.

“The goal is to offer an environment similar to what our clients had at Sound on Sound so they can seamlessly segue to the 48th Street location,” said Sound on Sound general manager Chris Bubacz. “Studio C gives us more space than we had at Sound on Sound, and the revamped room sounds spectacular. We've improved on a good thing, and the proof is in the bookings: Two of our largest clients, Ray Bardani and David Bendeth, have block-booked Studio C since it opened on October 27.”

The transformation of the production room at the 38th Street location, designed by Larry Swist, required the complete gutting and rebuilding of the space. It was modeled after Sound on Sound's Studio D, a Digidesign Pro Tools room for recording and overdubs, also designed by Swist.

The redesign will better isolate D1 from the second production room, which is scheduled for a similar build-out in 2006. Equipment in the production rooms will be expanded to include a Pro Tools|HD4 Accel system with a 24-channel D-Command control surface, and an array of keyboards and outboard gear.
