New York, NY (September 17, 2015)—BB4 Studios has chosen PMC IB2 speakers for its mixing and mastering facility in Williamsburg, NY.
Officially opened last November, the aim of BB4 (“Brooklyn Born Brooklyn Bred”) is to provide producers, engineers, artists and labels with an audio resource for audio mixing and mastering. Built from the ground up on Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue, BB4’s room has been acoustically designed to give the largest, flat sweet spot possible.
Christos Tsantilis, BB4’s in-house engineer who designed the studio in conjunction with its owner, Rafael “Raf” Planten. According to Tsantilis, a multi-platinum engineer and producer, as well as an accomplished studio designer, “I had worked on PMC speakers before and I could hear that they were extremely pristine. The PMCs are just very, very true and very accurate—matched up with the right amplifier, they make all the difference in the world. We depend on them to know we’re placing the instruments correctly in the mix, and that we’re hearing it right. We can make better decisions, more quickly—the PMCs really sing.”
In recent months, BB4 has been working on Ian Lloyd’s album titled BTB, which features band members from Foreigner, Yes and Stories. BB4’s team has also been working on multiple projects with players such as Zev Katz and Jon Ihle who will be represented by BB4’s publishing company.
