THE HIDEAWAY STUDIO TURNS IT UP A NOTCH WITH NEW GEAR

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – The Hideaway Studio of Minneapolis, MN, a premier music recording facility serving the Minneapolis, MN market and such artists as Snoop Dogg, Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Cloud Cult, The Matches, and Doomtree, has given
its studio a new boost through the purchase of some new equipment. It recently acquired its third Aurora Lynx 16 Converter for their Pro Tools HD 3 system, chosen for its full and transparent sound and an Elysia Xpressor 500 chosen for its versatility and flexibility in the mix stage. Also new to the studio is a third SSL SuperAnalogue Compressor to add to its already furnished SSL X rack system, of E Series Compressors and an E Series EQ, which is Mabbott’s “go to rack” for drum processing. The studio also gained its tenth API 550B EQ, which fills out one of the studio’s four API 500 series racks, and a Retro 176 Limiting Amplifier, which has quickly become one of Mabbott’s favorite compressors for vocals and bass.

“Acquiring this new equipment contributes to the extensive collection of outboard gear that The Hideaway Studio already has in place and allows even greater options and flexibility for capturing and creating a better end result for clients,” says The Hideaway Studio Founder Joseph Mabbott. “With every addition and upgrade of gear, we are able to broaden the pallet of tools available to maintain a high quality outcome standard for the studio as well as the engineers working with our clients, which ultimately provides our clientele with a superior product.”

The new gear recently acquired is reflective of the  studio’s ongoing growth and expansion. The studio most recently extended its
services and accommodations to support mainstream use among the general public, which was followed by the launch of an expanded internship program to help provide today’s recording, production and engineering students with greater opportunities for gaining authentic hands-on music industry experience.

Nestled along the Mississippi in Northeast Minneapolis, The Hideaway Studio is one of the Twin Cities’ premier recording and production studios. Founded in 2004 by owner and music engineer extraordinaire Joe Mabbott, The Hideaway Studio has quickly established itself as a music recording/production hub for local, national and international artists. Its comfortable yet professional
environment has yielded hundreds of records from hip hop to punk rock to traditional Irish folk music and all points in between. With multiple tracking rooms, two control rooms and a huge selection of the finest outboard gear, The Hideaway Studio is an extremely flexible recording facility that can meet most any budget.

Ozomatli Masters “Happy Feet Two – The Videogame” Score CD at Marsh Mastering

Photo by David Goggin.


LA’s much loved party band Ozomatli have finalized 12 songs for a CD collection culled from their score for “Happy Feet Two: The Videogame” at Marsh Mastering. The project is especially fitting as the band often performs bilingual children’s concerts as Ozo for Kidz._

“We worked on 25 songs for the videogame,” explained recording engineer/producer Robert Carranza, widely know for his work on Jack Johnson’s albums, including the music for the animated feature “Curious George.” “The songs for the game were so well-received by Warner Brothers that they asked us to put together a CD to come out at the same time as the film’s release.”

On hand at Marsh Mastering were Ozomatli’s Wil-Dog Abers, bass, vocals; Asdrubal Sierra, trumpet, lead vocals; Justin Poree, percussion, MC, vocals; Robert Carranza, recording engineer; Raul Pacheco Guitar, Lead Vocals; Jiro Yamaguchi, percussion; and Stephen Marsh, mastering engineer.

“My first impression of working with Stephen Marsh is that he takes a different approach to mastering,” Carranza continued. “He didn’t try to put his fingerprint on the music — he enhanced what was there with a lot of respect for the material. As a result, it’s a piece of work that really stands up. The band was really happy with the feat!”

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ “Happy Feet Two,” the sequel to the Oscar-winning hit, opens nationwide on November 18, 2011. The film is directed by George Miller and features the voices of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (P!nk), Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Sofia Vergara, Common, Hugo Weaving, Richard Carter, Magda Szubanski, Anthony LaPaglia and Benjamin “Lil P-Nut” Flores, Jr.

“Happy Feet Two – The Videogame” is a musical adventure game for the entire family inspired by the whimsical Antarctic world of the upcoming animated film “Happy Feet Two.” In the game, new dangers are threatening the penguin nation, and it’s going to take everyone working – and dancing – together to save them from extinction. Players use dance moves to recruit penguins with unique abilities that help advance the adventure, stun opponents and enemies, as well as manipulate the environment around them to solve co-operative puzzles.

“Happy Feet Two: The Videogame” was developed by KMM Games for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii. WayForward Technologies developed the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS versions.

“Happy Feet Two: The Videogame” soundtrack CD will be released November 8 by WaterTower Music.

Acoustics First reveals the PhaseFOAM™ Acoustical System

Acoustics First PhaseFOAM™ for critical listening environments

Acoustics First PhaseFOAM™ for critical listening environments

If you want a kit to tell you how to design the acoustics in your recording or rehearsal space, DON’T CLICK THIS LINK: www.PhaseFOAM.com

The principals of Acoustics First® have been in the acoustics arena since the seventies when they introduced industrial foam as an acoustic solution for recording studios. Back then, there were neither acoustics companies nor any off the shelf acoustic materials. Everything had to be built by hand. Since then, many choices have appeared – Pre-manufactured acoustical panels, thermoformed diffusers, and many single solution room kits. While kits are convenient and give reasonable results, they can’t possibly be an exact match for your room. Just as no two snowflakes are alike; no two rooms sonically the identical. When it comes to room acoustics, there is no ‘one size fits all’. All rooms are different, so we have created the PhaseFOAM™ acoustical system to allow you, the designer, to tune your room the way you want it to sound.

Acoustics First® introduces the first acoustical system that does not require you to have specific room dimensions. This acoustical system is based on two seemingly simple, but versatile, boxes of acoustical foam. You can use these basic building blocks to create an acoustical environment to suit your needs. PhaseFOAM™ Box A contains absorptive acoustical foam tiles and PhaseFOAM™ Box B contains modular bass traps.

If you have the knowledge, ability and confidence to design your own sound, CLICK THIS LINK: www.PhaseFOAM.com

We trust you to be the best judge of your acoustics!

HENRY EMBRY WINS EMMY® WITH LECTROSONICS AND THE KENNEDYS

*** Photo: The Kennedys sound mixing team ***

Toronto, Ontario, Canada – November 2011… In the world of television, the most highly respected symbol of achievement is the Emmy Award. So it goes without saying that receiving a 2011 Creative Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Mini Series or a Movie is quite a ‘feather in one’s cap.’ Such was the case this fall for Henry Embry, CAS, a Toronto-based production sound mixer who handled location sound for the highly acclaimed made for TV movie The Kennedys—specifically, the episode Lancer and Lace. Capturing sound for this project was a big job, and to ensure the finest audio quality possible, Embry relied on his wireless microphone equipment from Lectrosonics.

Embry, whose work spans roughly 20 years, works in both dramatic films and TV. With feature film credits that include Lars and the Real Girl, American Psycho, and Grey Gardens, Embry knows what it takes to deliver world-class audio. He discussed his experience with Lectrosonics equipment on The Kennedys project. more
