Toronto, Canada (September 8, 2017)—Producer and engineer Eddie Kramer is using IsoAcoustics’ new Iso-Puck acoustic isolators to optimize his near field monitors at his current facility in Toronto.
“I was a bit skeptical when I first saw the Iso-Pucks,” says Kramer, well known for his work with such rock legends as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones. “But actually I was then pleasantly blown away. The thing that I noticed immediately was that the imaging was quite substantially better.”
Kramer was midway through an album project when he tried the Iso-Pucks under his ATC SCM25A Pro reference monitors sitting on steel Sound Anchor stands. “I wanted to make sure that everything was going the way it should and was concentrating on the bottom end. When speakers are isolated correctly you should theoretically get more accurate bottom end,” says Kramer. “And that’s what I got using the Iso-Pucks. I checked very carefully a couple of weeks later when I went back to mastering and the bottom end held up perfectly. In fact, it was probably even more accurate.”
Kramer currently has his El Mocambo Studio set up in a location in Toronto’s Riverside neighborhood. He relocated from California to work alongside the Walters-Storyk Design Group on the renovation and revitalization of Toronto’s legendary El Mocambo nightclub, which will house a recording facility. Kramer famously worked with architect and acoustician John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group on the design of Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios in New York City in 1969.
He adds, “I keep turning my buddies in the business onto the Iso-Puck. John Storyk is aware of the product, and I’ve told him I probably will be using these at the El Mocambo.”
