New York, NY (April 16, 2007)–785 Records & Publishing/Denise Rich Songs has opened a new recording studio in their home office on Fifth Avenue in New York City. The list of musicians and producers who have worked in the label’s studio over the years includes Patti LaBelle, Jessica Simpson, John Legend, The Game, Natalie Cole, and Gavin DeGraw, and the new studio will be home to up-and-coming artists like Tiffany Giardina and Article A.
The new studio is equipped with an SSL AWS 900 console, Pro Tools rig, an Eventide H7600 Ultra-Harmonizer, Universal Audio LA-2A and LA-3A compressors, Neve 1073 EQs, API pre-amps and Lunchboxes. While much of the outboard gear is analog, a majority of the processing is done in Pro Tools.
“We took a look at our existing studio, that was designed back in the mid-90s, and decided that maybe it was time to tear it apart and start new,” recounted Mark Eichner, president, 785 Records & Publishing/Denise Rich Songs. “We wanted to build the new studio with the best tools available to enable the artists to do whatever they want. So, the entire studio is designed around our new SSL AWS 900 board and incorporates only the best components. When we considered effects processors, we knew that the Eventide H7600 was the best, based on our experience with their previous models.”
“Eventide is widely recognized as one of the most powerful, versatile processors available,” continued Eichner. “Why wouldn’t you want that? This way we don’t have to waste half a day getting people in the studio familiarized with our gear. People come in, they see the Eventide processor, and they instantly feel comfortable.”
“As a guitar player, I have always found that you could get great performance and a huge range of sounds from Eventide processors,” said Mike Beck, creative manager, 785 Records & Publishing/Denise Rich Songs. “The possibilities it offers for vocal processing are amazing, and the modulating reverbs and delays are unbeatable. I’m looking forward to using the new 7600 model on a number of our upcoming projects and I know that its performance will equal if not exceed that of its predecessor.”
