Indianapolis, IN (August 26, 2004)–The Pop Machine has been busy tracking and mixing several exciting projects, including an album with hard rockers Dystalis, who locked out the studio to track and mix their debut release with producers Marc Johnson and William Hammel. Marc’s twin brother Eric Klee Johnson mixed the project, which was tracked to 24-bit Digidesign Pro Tools using The Pop Machine’s vintage and tube mic-pre sidecar called “The Pop Cart” that includes Neve 1066’s, Calrec PQs, API 512b, Focusrite ISAs, and UA 610 models.
Swedish Indy 500 champion Kenny Brack also stopped in The Pop Machine to track and mix his new release for his band Kenny Brack and the Subwoofers. The record was produced by former Why Store drummer Charlie Bushor, engineered by Cortland Foxworth and mixed by Eric Klee Johnson.
Acoustic rockers Dark House Sweet’s debut release Four is currently in stores. The record was produced, engineered, and mixed by Marc Johnson at The Pop Machine in Indianapolis and mastered by Andy VanDette at NYC’s Masterdisk. Marc is currently in the studio tracking new albums by Jeremy Vogt and Dan Keplinger, and co-producing the debut release from Evansville, IN band Undone with fellow producer Mark Moran.
17-year old singing sensation Kayleigh Silva was at The Pop Machine tracking her new album with the producing/writing team of Eric Klee Johnson, Marc Johnson, Joey Fingers and Jeff Whorley. Drums for the record were performed by rock legend Kenny Aronoff and session ace Dane Clark (both Mellencamp alum).
