Chuck Ainlay with his Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizers.Nashville (March 21, 2008)–Nashville engineer/producer Chuck Ainlay has added Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizers to his monitor setup at Sound Stage Surround studios.
The Recoil Stabilizers are nearfield reference monitor platforms that are said to isolate the loudspeaker from the shelf while adding a platform that stabilize the motion of the loudspeaker. The net effect, according to the manufacturer, is a more solid bottom end and improved consistency as monitors are moved from one space to another.
“Your mixes are only as good as your monitors and mix environment, says Ainlay, known for his work with artists such as Mark Knopfler, Vince Gill, Wynonna, Trisha Yearwood, George Strait, Peter Frampton and Lyle Lovett. “When I began using the Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizers, I immediately noticed improvements in the low-end clarity of my nearfield monitors, to the point that I no longer needed to use a separate subwoofer. Incredibly, the detail of high frequencies and image localization were also improved.”
Recoil Stabilizers are available in a variety of sizes and firing angles to adapt to various monitor sizes and positioning requirements.
