Davie, FL (February 4, 2015)—Davie, FL-based private recording facility Vanquish Studios is celebrating five years in business.
The studio was designed by the Blank Design Group with systems integration by the Malvicino Design Group and gear sourced through GC Pro (Guitar Center Professional). The live room sports a mix of wood, stone and acoustical treatments, customizable for each project to the clients’ needs. The control room’s centerpiece is an SSL Duality SE 48-input analog console from Solid State Logic. GC Pro-sourced gear includes Pro Tools and a full software complement; microphones from Audio-Technica, AKG, Neumann, Sennheiser, Sony and several other manufacturers; monitors from ADAM, Genelec, Yamaha and others; and outboard gear from such brands as Focusrite, Lexicon, Universal Audio, Apogee and more.
During its five years in business, according to the studio’s founder and CEO, Joseph Salamida, who graduated as one of the top students in his class at SAE Miami, Vanquish has accumulated “well over 300 happy clients, more than 84,000 GB of data and over 12,500 hours recorded. We have been busy!”
The studio has reportedly produced successful projects in every genre, including Grammy-nominated projects by such artists as William McDowell and Israel Houghton, but Salamida’s heart lies with his Christian ministry: “It might sound old-fashioned to some, but I see this studio as an extension of my ministry, whether or not I’m working on Christian music at the moment. And for Christian artists, we are expanding what we offer—we now are unveiling our production company and record label to get these projects fully produced, all in-house, offering a turnkey solution to save these artists money on their tight budgets.”
Salamida credits his relationship with GC Pro for helping maintain the studio’s reputation: “I have worked with three different account managers at GC Pro, and each of them has been world-class. When I call frantically with an emergency, they help us solve it in a calm and professional way. They’ve got our back.”
