Nashville, TN (January 4, 2013)—Having relocated his facility from Seattle to Nashville's Music Row, Brandon Metcalf has now implemented the PhantomFocus System from Carl Tatz Design in Destiny Studios.
Metcalf, whose recent projects include progressive acts such as Secondhand Serenade, Brooke Hogan, and The Classic Crime, moved his Seattle-based Destiny Studios into its new home on Music Row, in the heart of Music City, over the summer. Once settled, he quickly made preparation for his PFS.
He had been using the Barefoot MicroMain 27 monitors and was used to them, but after being so blown away by a different brand of monitors in a PhantomFocus System at another studio, he was a bit skeptical that the Barefoots could match their performance. "I assured him that they would and pointed him toward Tesla drummer Troy Luccetta's studio, with his PFS/Barefoot MM27s, and that convinced Brandon that the combination would live up to his expectations," recalls Carl Tatz, CTD founder and studio designer.
"I had never heard anything like this in my life—monitors that were this accurate and enveloping," comments Metcalf, an engineer and producer, about his initial listening experience of the system. "I could hear everything from 20 Hz to 20 kHz-the good, bad and ugly, and because of that, I knew immediately that I wanted this precision monitoring tool in my new Nashville studio."
