Studio Design: MontAnna Mix Room
2012 TEC Award Nominee and Mix Magazine Class of 2012 Award Winner - Multi GRAMMY®-Winning songwriter Monty Powell and jazz artist Anna Wilson chose Carl Tatz Design (CTD) to design their new townhouse studio, aptly named the MontAnna Mix Room. It is the second time CTD was hired to design a personal studio for the couple. Because of their travel and writing schedules, they no longer required a tracking facility and this room was to concentrate primarily on mixing and over dubbing. Acoustics were achieved with a custom application of the Carl Tatz Signature Series™ family of control room acoustic modules by Auralex®. The rear control room wall is actually a powerful wide-band absorber separating it from the equipment room. The very comfortable ISO booth is isolated from the control room with floor to ceiling glass. Monitoring is perfected with the PhantomFocus™ System 4 using Monty’s long-time monitors of choice, the Tannoy 800As.
