Rosner with an AKG C 12 VRVienna, Austria (November 2, 2010)–Located in the legendary Brill Building overlooking Times Square, KMA Music attracts VIP artists to record chart-topping hits with the help of AKG microphones.
Since opening its doors in 2007, studio manager Dave “Roz” Rosner has offered his clients, ranging from Jordan Sparks, Jay Sean, Jay-Z, Neil Diamond, Paul Simon, Lil Wayne, Beyonce and many others, a selection of AKG mics, including AKG’s C 12 VR Tube microphone and a set of C 414s.
“Each artist has their own personal taste, but a large portion of our clientele are very loyal and will request the C 12 for their sessions,” he said. “The C 12 is a great microphone and really gives a ‘whomp’ to any artists’ vocals.” The C 12 is also used in recording bass drums, hi-hats and piano in the studio.
KMA also utilizes the Lexicon 960 digital effects system and the PCM81 live sound multi-effects processor during mixing. Assistant studio manager James Spano explains that KMA has demo’ed multiple Lexicon plug-ins with artists and is currently researching a permanent Lexicon plug-in system for the mixing rooms.
“Our clients expect the best service and hospitality, which is what we provide. We’ve made the investments in our equipment to ensure the artists and labels are happy and continue to work with us,” concluded Rosner.
