Bobby Gentilo, manager at Right Coast Recording
Columbia, PA (December 1, 2014)—Columbia, PA-based Right Coast Recording combines old-school and modern-day recording technologies with its use of Lexicon plug-ins and processors.
Since 1990, Right Coast has hosted area and national artists, from local acts like Burning Bus, Beru Revue and Jump the Gun to name artists like Billy Joel, the Dixie Chicks and Yes. Central to the facility is a 42-ft. by 35-ft. by 16-ft. main studio space.
“We’ll use whatever it takes to get the right sounds for our artists and corporate clients,” said Bobby Gentilo, manager at Right Coast, which is owned by Dave Natale, FOH engineer for artists such as Fleetwood mac, Tina Turner, Lionel Richie and, currently, the Rolling Stones. “More often than not, Lexicon reverbs and effects find their way into the final mix.” Right Coast’s Lexicon arsenal includes the PCM Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle, two 224 digital reverbs, an MX200 effects processor and a classic PCM 70 digital effects processor.
Gentilo uses the Right Coast’s two Lexicon 224 digital reverbs as an overall bus to the studio’s analog mixing console, with one dedicated entirely to vocals. He uses the Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle to add what he calls “depth of field” to individual instruments or to the overall mix and to fine-tune the reverb on guitars. “I’ve been using the Lexicon hardware reverbs for a long time and am comfortable with them, but if I didn’t have them I would be fine using just the Plug-In Bundle.”
