Miami, FL (November 22, 2019 )— Noisematch Studios, a new facility designed by the Malvicino Design Group and built from the ground up in Miami, features an SSL Duality SE 48 console and an Ocean Way Audio HR2 Tri-Amplified monitoring system, and is a 2020 nominee for the TEC Award in the Studio Design Project category.
Studio designer Horacio Malvicino worked closely with producer/engineer Alex J to create the new Noisematch Studios facility in the heart of Wynwood, Miami. The studio features a recording environment suitable to a variety of musical styles, with video production available on site.
“Horacio is very exacting when it comes to the integration of the gear and the acoustics,” says Alex J. “In the live room, it’s all about the design that creates the best sound you can get from that space. And in the control room, you want that perfectly clear reproduction of the music that you are working on.”
Noisematch Studios’ monitors include Ocean Way Audio HR2 monitors. “We designed and tuned the control room for the HR2’s as the main set of speakers,” says Alex J, “because the fidelity is so high and the frequency response is clear all across the whole spectrum. The sound is bold, but it’s a very natural, transparent, and after long hours of working, it’s not fatiguing.”
The system includes custom Ocean Way electronic equalizers with tuned and aligned electronic crossover. Sommer Cable is used both internally for the cabinets and also from the amps to the cabinets: respectively, Elephant Robust SPM440 cable and SC-Twincord cable.
“If I’m doing something like acoustic jazz, I’m very demanding about the mid-range and the presence,” Alex J continues, “or the depth and the bass I’m going for in hip hop or urban music and making sure that there’s nothing that sounds muddy. It’s like working with a really high-end surgical tool when it comes to the audio.”
Additional gear includes ATC and Yamaha NS-10M nearfield monitors, vintage McIntosh MC250 power amplifier, Lynx Aurora DAW Interfaces, Universal Audio, Empirical Labs, API, and Bricasti. Also onsite is a Yamaha C7 grand piano, Fender Rhodes, and Yamaha drums.
