Nashville, TN (August 5, 2015)—Richard Furch used his Carl Tatz Design PhantomFocus System to mix multimedia superstar Tyrese Gibson's Black Rose album, which went straight to the top spot on multiple charts worldwide.
Black Rose opened at #1 on the Billboard 200, #1 Top R&B/HipHop Albums, #1 R&B albums, #1 Apple Music, and #1 iTunes overall and R&B charts. It hit #1 in 15 countries’ iTunes charts as of August 1. “It’s great music and I’m proud of having mixed and recorded it," notes multi-platinum/award-winning L.A.-based engineer Furch.
According to Furch, "I've worked out of my own studio, the mixHaus in Los Angeles, for the last five years, and always had multiple top-of-the-line speaker systems tuned by some of the leading acousticians in the industry. But I always felt that mixing music should be more effortless and translate better.
“Enter the Carl Tatz PhantomFocus System. Carl and his team came in and tweaked the room, installed my speakers in the best location for this particular room and implemented the PFS for an accurate response down to 25 Hz. The sound staging is impressive and the vocals sound like they are right in front of you, a feeling akin to going from 480p to 4K HD resolution in the video world.
“But on top of that, the system doesn't just sound pleasing, it translates expertly. It most certainly gives me peace of mind that what I hear is accurate to what the record sounds like, which shaves off hours from the mix process and results in better mixes all over the map. Client approval is faster, and I can't imagine going back to any other system. I keep recommending it to my colleagues. Thank you, Carl, for installing the first PhantomFocus System on the West Coast at the mixHaus."
