Esquire builds a studio with Blue, SSL, Genelec Avid and AP

esquire_logoAudio Perception was contacted by Kevin Becka (Mix Magazine/Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences) who is helping to put together a project for Esquire magazine in conjunction with Blue Microphones. Each year Esquire builds out a home or living space that is then used to raise money for charities. The house chosen for 2010 is a mansion in the Hollywood Hills overlooking Los Angeles. Last year, Esquire built out a penthouse in Manhattan and included a small recoding studio there. With the studio in New York being such a success, this year they decided to build out a room behind the main house as a complete recording studio, including a control room and vocal booth. Kevin has been working closely with Blue's Tyler Barth to design the room and coordinate all of the equipment. SSL is donating a Duality console, AVID is contributing an HD3 Pro Tools system with the new Avid interfaces, and Genelec is adding in speakers all working together to showcase recordings done with Blue's microphones. Audio Perception is donating it's time to integrate all the equipment and get the studio up and running. We'll be adding some updates here soon including more information and photos as the project unfolds. You can read more about the project by clicking "here". View the updated article "11/21/2010"
