Rockaway, NJ (October 19, 2015)—Airshow Mastering Takoma Park has installed its fourth SADiE system, and has upgraded facility-wide to Prism Sound's latest SADiE 6.1 audio recording and editing software.
Senior mastering engineer Randy LeRoy joined Airshow Mastering's Takoma Park facility just outside Washington, DC in 2010. LeRoy, who first worked on a SADiE system back in the late '90s, has since mastered projects from some of the biggest names in country, bluegrass, folk, Americana and gospel.
"My previous company, Final Stage Mastering, installed a SADiE 24/96 system and a few years later added SADiE DSD 8 and DSD 2 turnkey systems," LeRoy says. "I brought the two DSD systems with me when I joined Airshow in 2010. In 2013, we replaced the Series 5 DSD 8 system with the new SADiE 6. To facilitate compatibility between both mastering suites, we now currently operate SADiE 6.1 in both of our mastering rooms."
LeRoy has recently mastered projects for country artists Jamey Johnson, Amanda Watkins, and Brooke Hogan, Americana artists John Cowan, Andrea Zonn and Colin Hay, and bluegrass artists Larry Cordle, Frank Solivan, and Bryan Sutton. Solivan and Sutton releases mastered by LeRoy were both nominated for 2015 Grammy Awards for Best Bluegrass album.
