— Two hallmarks of Music City turn to the PhantomFocus™ System monitor tuning protocol as the platform for critical listening —
NASHVILLE, TN, July 28, 2009 — Music City’s iconic Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Auditorium are the latest additions to the growing number studios who have chosen to upgrade their control room monitoring with the Carl Tatz Design (CTD) PhantomFocus System™, bringing the total to over forty to date. The announcement was made by Carl Tatz of the Carl Tatz Design group, and further underscores a trend in commercial and private recording studios employing the PhantomFocus System room tuning protocol to create a critical listening environment.
The implementation of the CTD PhantomFocus System allows an end user’s speakers of choice to perform beyond the manufacturer’s specifications, correcting boundary and room mode effects and rendering a truly accurate reference monitoring system with near holographic imaging. The PhantomFocus System, which can be employed in any acoustic environment with any speakers in either stereo or 5.1 configuration, is an unprecedented tool for attaining consistent, accurate monitoring with a higher level of professional confidence. The monitors tuned using the PhantomFocus System in the Grand Ole Opry are Genelec 8050As and in the Ryman Auditorium, Dynaudio M1s.
King Williams, Chief Broadcast Engineer for both facilities, stated, “The thing that is the most fun for me is how the center ‘channel’ feels like a physical presence; as well, I know that our mixes are translating much better out of the building than they ever have. We’ve got two systems and we love listening to them both!”
The PhantomFocus System is available exclusively from Carl Tatz Design and can be employed in any monitoring environment regardless of current choice of monitors.
About the PhantomFocus™ System
Carl Tatz Design’s (CTD) proprietary PhantomFocus™ System offers clients a world class monitoring experience in their own room, no matter how modest they may perceive it to be. The PhantomFocus System allows their monitors of choice to perform accurately at a full 20Hz to 20KHz frequency response with pinpoint imaging in an almost holographic sweet spot — this enables their mixes to travel anywhere with a new level of sonic accuracy. There are approximately fifty steps in the proprietary PhantomFocus Monitor System implementation protocol — evaluation and implementation is a full two-day process and can be applied to near-fields, mid-fields, and large soffit mounted monitors, regardless of manufacturer. Carl Tatz Design can implement the PhantomFocus System in existing control rooms or in studios that are designed and built from the ground up by CTD. The result is like the aural equivalent of HD TV. Once you experience monitors tuned with the PhantomFocus System you can’t go back.
