Nashville, TN (May 16, 2011)–The monitors at Jamie Rosenberg’s Great Divide Studios are now configured in a Carl Tatz Design 5.1 Dual PhantomFocus system.
Beyonce, Burt Bacharach, Ryan Tedder and John Oates are a few of the high-profile clients that book Rosenberg’s Great Divide Studios in the ski resort of Aspen, CO. Designed by Pilchner-Schoustal of Toronto, Canada, the control room features a soffit-mounted 5.1 system with ATC SCM150ASL Pro monitors and a pair of Adam Audio S3X-H near fields (replacing Adam S3As), now configured in a Carl Tatz Design (CTD) 5.1 Dual PhantomFocus system.
Although partially satisfied with the soffit-mount speakers, Rosenberg was struggling with his nearfield set up, not trusting his mixes in either system and having to check them in the car with the hope that it would tell him the truth.
“Jamie gave us a call after studying the PFS brochure on the CTD website and reading various magazine articles,” notes Carl Tatz. “After listening to the issues he was having, I was able to make recommendations, assuring him that we bat a thousand with the PhantomFocus System, and while we were going to travel out to Aspen to implement his near field system, it wouldn’t cost that much more to go ahead and include the 5.1 mains in a Dual PFS. The ATC mains and the Adam near fields share the same subwoofer system, allowing both sets of monitors to now have the same very accurate frequency response and holographic center imaging down to 20Hz.”
“Now I can relax and have absolute trust in what I hear. I’ve had visiting engineers tell me that this is the best monitoring they’ve ever heard–and they’re right!” boasts Rosenberg.
