HARMAN NEWS SERVICE – Recording industry veteran Rafa Sardina is an 11-time GRAMMY®-winning producer, mixer and recording engineer, whose credits include projects with Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Shakira, Mariah Carey, Dr. Dre, Beyoncé, Sheryl Crow and Macy Gray. He has enjoyed continued success using HARMAN JBL LSR6328P studio monitors.
According to Sardina, the LSR studio monitors have become an integral tool in his recording setup. “I use the LSR monitors while recording the tracks and mixing,” Sardina said. “It has been a very fruitful association for me, since the JBL LSR’s really helped me better my game in recording and especially the mixing process.”
In turn, the LSR studio monitors have left an impression on the artists Sardina works with. “The artists often comment positively on the LSR monitors,” Sardina said. “Not only that, but they often ask me to recommend how to achieve the same listening experience.”
The most important benefit of the LSR monitors, Sardina said, is their ability to provide accuracy in any environment. “It’s not only about how good the track sounds in the studio, but more importantly, about how it translates outside the studio environment,” he added. “That’s the aspect that makes these speakers so enjoyable.”
In addition, Sardina uses JBL LSR6312SP subwoofers. “I don’t think there’s a better subwoofer out there in the market. I can say that after testing them out over the years!”
Sardina sees technology as an integral component of the art of music production itself—and finds artistic value in using the LSR monitors. “The LSR monitors helped me get reassurance about my creative decisions,” Sardina said. “You work quite differently when you know exactly how your recordings are going to reflect in other listening environments and what the sonic boundaries and limitations are.”
