Tangerine Mastering opens in Weehawken

Tangerine Mastering is a brand-new, state-of-the-art mastering facility dedicated to providing its clients with the ultimate audio experience. The new facility is located just minutes from downtown Manhattan across the Hudson River at the Lincoln Tunnel. The new facility is holding its official opening party Friday, January 25.

Owned by Johansen and Gene Holder, bass player for The db's, Tangerine Mastering was designed by acoustician John Storyk of the Walters-Storyk Design Group. The working environment lies within an artist-run production arts building that houses sound stages, recording studios, post-production suites, independent record companies and college radio promoters.

Lead mastering engineer at the new facility is Andreas K. Meyer, who has worked with such renowned artists as Hilary Hahn, Joshua Bell, Yo Yo Ma, Essa Pekka Salonen, Arcadi Volodos, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, The New York Philharmonic and The Boys Choir of Harlem. Meyer has received numerous Grammy Awards, including Mastering Engineer in 2000 for Best Historical Album.

Tangerine Mastering's design objective was to ensure precise acoustical performance. Emphasizing innovation, ergonomics and aesthetics, Tangerine has equipped its space with a combination of the latest digital audio workstations and processors, working with classic gear that includes an original Abbey Road EMI Mastering Chain, Pultec and Cinema equalizers plus Universal Audio LA-2A compressors.
