The Music Mix Mobile remote/
broadcast audio facility went online in July 2008 with a brand-new truck and separate flightpack systems equipped with full-blown Pro Tools recorders, D-Control/D-Command surfaces, Genelec surround monitoring and more than 112 channels of Grace Design preamps. The facility is owned and run by A-list veteran engineers John Harris, Mitch Makentansky, Joel Singer and Jay Vicari — four friends who have been at this business for years, capturing and mixing everything from club recordings to concerts at Madison Square Garden to the biggest televised music award shows.

“We decided that anything worth doing is worth overdoing,” Singer says. “We purchased a new top-of-the line Freightliner chassis, and had a custom control room from Boulevard Body Works installed. We overdesigned the climate, electric and acoustic systems, and then installed top-end recording equipment. We wanted the best sonically as a front end in preamps and chose two 56-channel M802 racks of Grace Design preamps for the front end with the digital AES cards installed, and connected to the truck via TAC4 fiber. The mixer is a separate Pro Tools HD6 system running plug-ins from Waves, TC Electronic, McDSP, Sonnox, Sound Toys, Digidesign and more. There are master and safety recorders, Pro Tools expanded HD Systems, so we're able to record 160 channels with each system — 128 channels from the stage and 32 additional channels locally at the truck.”

Music Mix Mobile's projects include Bon Jovi in Central Park, the Sundance Channel's Spectacle with Elvis Costello, Rosie O'Donnell Live, Fall Out Boy, Coldplay, Beck and more. For more details and photos, visit www.mixonline.com.
