Midland, TX (January 4, 2013)-MudRock Recording Studios, founded by country recording artist Ken Goldsmith in Midland, TX, has installed an SSL AWS 948 hybrid console/controller.
The commercial recording facility was established to service clients of the Nashville on the Brazos record label, Goldsmith's music production company. "MudRock Recording Studios was built to rival studios found in Nashville and L.A., offering high-end recording services for bands and artists in our region," says Anthony Nieto, record and mix engineer for MudRock. "The AWS 948 was everything we needed to get going from the top level. You really cannot go wrong with SSL."
MudRock Recording Studios features The Ballroom, which provides a 640-square-foot stage and 200-seat capacity for showcasing bands and hosting events. The Ballroom is set for the production of music videos and includes lighting, video recording, broadcasting capabilities and large screen displays. The Live Room is large enough for up to eight musicians/singers, with the Ballroom doubling as a giant drum booth for heavier sessions. Both rooms are connected to the AWS.
"The Ballroom in MudRock will provide a set for live band performances as well as multimedia video recording and broadcasting," continues Nieto. "Our intention is to employ highly-skilled audio/video engineers and technicians, with the goal of airing a weekly music show that will showcase up-and-coming performers as well as big name stars. Our hope is this will give us a national distribution network to sell the music developed by writers signed to Nashville on the Brazos. The AWS is a big part of this because of the 'wow factor' in owning an SSL console. The AWS definitely draws musicians to the facility."
