Oceanside, NY (February 6, 2020)—Caelum Music Production, a recording studio based in Oceanside, NY, has worked with a variety of artists over the years, from local fledgling performers on up to clients like Adele’s drummer Derrick Wright and The Voice finalist Troy Ramey. Recently Caelum’s owner, composer/producer Dante Lattanzi, revamped the facility’s acoustical treatments to make the most of the versatile space.
Lattanzi points to the Sustain Pyramid placed above the drums in the tracking room, which he says creates balance and helps distinguish individual sounds even at high volumes. “Without the Pyramid, the difference is night and day,” he says. The drum kits also benefit from the use of the HoverMat, which he says provides “a shock absorber and improves the clarity of the drum tone for the drummer.”
Elsewhere in Caelum, Auralex’s ProMAX and Studiofoam wedges are used in the tracking room and vocal booth in an effort to create an intimate environment for musicians. A Gramma v2 is used underneath a vintage Fender Pro Reverb amp, isolating it from microphones placed elsewhere in the room.
In the control room, Sustain Lens Bamboo Diffusors and DST Panels are placed above/behind the engineer’s seat to tighten the sound and contribute to accurate tracking, mixing and mastering, while LENRD Bass Traps help tame the room’s low end.
“The Auralex technology makes a huge difference in everything we do here,” says Lattanzi. “We’ve been an Auralex user since 2000, and it’s been a part of the studio’s sound and its success.”
Much like the working space it resides in, Caelum Music Production (pronounced “ki-lem”) as a company is flexible as well, offering a variety of services such as music production, mixing, mastering, artist management and more.
