Pompano Beach, FL (January 14, 2004)–Spectrum Recording Studios recently celebrated its 20th year in business. When owner and musician/songwriter Jim Kalamasz bought Spectrum Recording Studios, originally located in Deerfield Beach, FL, musicians including LL Cool J, Doc Holiday and a host of others started recording there.
“I realized early on that in order to survive and compete with the other studios who had ‘deep pockets,’ I would have to offer a wide range of recording services in addition to traditional music projects,” offered Kalamasz. “Since purchasing Spectrum in 1983, I’ve continuously worked to stay ahead of the curve. Over time, we have constantly upgraded our equipment to keep pace with changing technology and to better serve the demands of our clientele.”
Kalamasz worked to court advertising agencies and invited jingle writers to utilize local musicians, singers and arrangers, all the while constantly improving the studio by adding new gear and instruments. In 1990 South Florida’s rapid growth put Spectrum in crisis. The quiet residential road the facility was built on in Deerfield Beach was selected as the beginning of a new highway. Kalamasz began an extensive search to relocate. Finally, he came across a newly constructed building in Pompano Beach and had the space built out to meet the studios specific needs. The studio remains at that location.
Spectrum Recording Studios, located at 871 West McNab Road in Pompano Beach, is a full-service facility accommodating everything from solo singers to full bands to orchestras; simple voice over recording with source music to multiple talent lock-to-picture session featuring a custom score, dialog replacement, digital sound effects, and more. Both control rooms at Spectrum utilize top equipment including Digidesign Pro Tools and the Final Cut Pro video editing system, which allows Spectrum to mix and author DVD’s in 5.1 surround sound.
