New Braunfels, TX (July 12, 2004)–Syntaur Productions’ new studio has been busy lately, since the arrival of the Sony DMX-R100 console. While the studio is maily used for in-house sound design and creating digital samples for keyboards, it is also seeing a lot of use for music production in the Austin/San Antonio area.
Engineer Gary Hickinbotham recently mixed a live concert CD for the Center for Texas Music History, which featured an all-star Lone-Star lineup, including Ray Benson (Asleep at the Wheel), the Sisters Morales, Chris Wall, Ruthie Foster, and Joel Guzman, among others. Hickinbotham also mixed a song for a music video by artist Foscoe Jones. Guitarist Rick McRae (George Strait) was also in the studio tracking several songs for studio owner and writer/producer Sam Mims.
