We've been admirers of the Genelec line for years, at trade shows and at fine studios, and now we've got them here! Clients have been quick to notice and applaud the improvement in control room monitoring.

MORE INTERNET CONNECTIVITY
Our Verizon DSL line now has a wireless access point. In addition to our semi-Web-dedicated Mac G3 terminal, feel free to bring your Wi-Fi / Airport equipped laptop and surf as you work!

MORE ONLINE HD STORAGE
We have just augmented our online hard drive storage capacity on our main system with a 200 gigabyte, 7200 rpm Firewire drive. This is in addition to a 40 GB system drive and 44 GB fast LVD SCSI drive, and will allow us to deal seamlessly and time-efficiently with the huge project files that are now becoming typical in the DAW-based recording world.

NEW ADAT LX-20
Over the years, we have maintained ADAT compatibility, as a number of our clients need it. Most recently we have installed a brand new ADAT LX-20 recorder, featuring improved transport speed and 20 bit compatibility. Need to mix your ADAT project in a heavy duty Pro Tools environment? Look no farther!

CLIENT NEWS
Filmmaker Todd Solondz and composer Eytan Mirsky came in to record vocals and mix music for an upcoming, as yet untitled film.

Ronnie Lawson Productions continues to rock the industrial house with recent shows for FedEx and Astra Zeneca, among others.

Piadrum Records has brought in a string of projects, including Max Roach and Abdullah Ibrahim's "Streams of Consciousness" (we remastered for CD release, with special thanks to Mark Berger at Transfermat at the Toy Specialists), Achille Gajo Trio (we mixed and mastered) and an upcoming Charnett Moffett CD Release.

Singer/writer Larry Kirwan spent some weeks here doing overdubs for the latest Black 47 release, produced by Stewart Lerman.

Singer/songwriter Steve Tannen did numerous overdubs here for his just released, much anticipated 2nd CD "Stopped At A Green Light".

Singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Diane Haroutunian was in to record mix, and master "Gakavig" a collection of new and traditional songs in Armenian, part of an ongoing educational outreach project.

Singer/songwriter Meg Flather and guitarist/singer extraordinaire Vicki Genfan were in to record some of Meg's new songs- perhaps the first glimpse of a new release for Meg?

THE MASTERING ROOM
Recent mastering projects include: Banjoist Ben Freed's ferocious "Suite For Bluegrass Banjo" which includes some not-to-be-believed playing by cellist Rushad Eggleston, as well as star turns by Kenny Kosek, Barry Mitterhoff and Jon Sholle, to name but a few... While in the bluegrass vein, we were also very pleased to master "The Badbelly Project" by banjoist/guitarist/singer Tom Hanway, featuring the legendary Vassar Clements on fiddle, and recorded and produced by Lincoln Schleifer. Also, producer Dan Martin and artist John Pollard brought in Outmusic's Compilation CD for mastering, a frankly dazzling assortment of music by artists in the gay and lesbian community.

MISCELLANEOUS KUDOS
We wish to congratulate JGMP clients Holly Lamar and Sarah Nagourney, who BOTH have cuts on the current #1 Country album by Wynonna Judd!

Also congratulations to Suzanne Vega on the release of "Retrospective" - a compilation album which happens to feature quite a bit of guitar work by Jon Gordon from back in the day... Well, that's it for now.

Take care 'til next time!

JG
