Groovemaster Recording in Chicago, owned by producer/engineer Johnny K, recently upgraded its studio with an SSL 4080G+ certified by Professional Audio Design (PAD).
In addition to the G+, PAD supplied Groovemaster with DynaudioAcoustics/Munro C4+ main monitors with custom 3x12 subs finished in natural cherry with Chord Electronics amplifiers and XTA crossovers. PAD's technical group also assisted in the wiring and integration for the new console upgrade. Since the completion of the construction, Groovemaster has recently hosted sessions for P.O.D., Sum 41, Simple Plan, and 3 Doors Down. Johnny K also tracked the latest album for the metal-rock band Disturbed on the SSL.
“Johnny knew from the beginning the type of board he wanted,” says Dave Malekpour, president of PAD. “We went through all of the options available keeping in mind where he wanted the studio positioned in the future. He had done some mixing in other studios on SSL's and really liked they way the music sounded. Johnny has some high profile clients and we wanted him to be able to provide the best gear suitable for his customers. Groovemaster is a state-of-the-art facility in the heart of Chicago, with many luxurious accommodations and top-of-the-line gear.”
