Drummer Mike Sciotto used the Aviom A-16II Personal Mixer at BiCoastal Studios.Ossining, NY (July 7, 2008)-BiCoastal Studios has been on a roll lately, hosting recording sessions with some of the music industry’s brightest stars, including the Yellowjackets, Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and progressive rocker Danny Brill.
While recording with Brill, drummer Mike Sciotto used the Aviom A-16II Personal Mixer. “The Aviom system makes it such a pleasure to record,” he says. “There is nothing like having a separate mix. It makes everyone happy and is super user-friendly; I really love it. It’s a must in my studio and should be in everyone’s. All you have to do is use it once to know it’s the only way to go.”
The Yellowjackets was in BiCoastal Studios working on new recordings with engineer Rich Breen. The Aviom mixers, normalled to the all-digital Solid State Logic C200, were used for the cue system during tracking and overdub sessions.
Following the success of his first solo CD recorded at BiCoastal, Something to Be, Thomas is back in the studio working with producer Matt Serletic and engineer Mark Dobson, and once again is pleased with the results.
“We installed the Aviom Personal Mixers in 2003 at the suggestion of the studio’s designer, Russ Berger,” Hal Winer, owner of BiCoastal, says. “We’ve done sessions with a diverse group of internationally acclaimed musicians, bands, and producers, including Phil Ramone, Neil Dorfsman, Bjork, Omar Hakim, Tony Levin, Antigone Rising, New York Philharmonic Chamber Group and Mick Guzauski, and everyone loves the system.”
