San Diego, CA (December 3, 2015)—The multi-purpose B room at Lost Ark Studio in San Diego has been equipped with an analog mixing desk, several analog tape machines, various racks of outboard gear and a pair of A7X nearfield monitors, together with a Sub7 subwoofer, from ADAM Audio.
“I started seeing ADAM speakers in studios around L.A. and thought they had a really smooth sound that was easy to listen to for extended periods of time. It was the first time I heard a ribbon tweeter as well, and was impressed with how well they handled midrange,” says Mike Butler, chief engineer at Lost Ark Studio. “When we needed a nearfield for our relatively small control room that was going to allow us to not only mix accurately, but have some power to feel the music during playback while tracking, we chose a combination of the A7Xs with the Sub7.”
Butler continues, “Since then we have worked a lot on the ADAM monitors. The majority of the studio’s compilation series sessions were done on the ADAMs, as well as albums by local San Diego artists Blackout Party, Lord Howler, Jesse LaMonaca, Transfer and many others.” The studio has also become the home base for in-house label Randm Records, he says.
