JESSUP, MARYLAND – MARCH 2010: The Manifold Recording studio complex, fifteen miles southwest of Raleigh-Durham, encompasses a grand vision to serve the recording community with a technically- and aesthetically-stunning facility using zero-carbon emission practices. It will possess a grand vision in a more literal sense as well, as engineers and artists in Control Room A will take command of their work from behind a state-of-the-art, fully-analog, fully-discrete, 64-channel API Vision console with integrated surround and stereo bus topologies. Wes Lachot Design provided the breathtaking architectural plan based on the principles of organic architecture, using forward-thinking, sustainable practices.

Slated for completion in fall 2010, Manifold Recording situates its 6,000-square-foot facility on seventeen country acres with a private pond and proximate bed and breakfast lodging. A soaring ceiling encloses its 1,400-square-foot tracking room with impeccable acoustics and inspiring sightlines. Control Room A will feature the API Vision together with a collection of recording technologies, monitoring, and outboard processing. The smaller Control Room B centers on a digital console, and both rooms are fully-networked for any conceivable combined or separate use.

“We were very happy to work with Dave Lyons at Sonic Circus, together with Wes Lachot, and Manifold Recording’s owner and visionary, Michael Tiemann,” said Dan Zimbelman, director of sales at API. “Studio build-outs of this magnitude are rare, and news of Manifold Recording has stirred up some hopeful and happy feelings for audio professionals who recognize a project that puts people, music, and audio first. We’re also very happy that Manifold Recording and Wes Lachot Design are pioneering sustainable building practices in what promises to be a zero-net-carbon building.”

“The decision to go with API for the very best in analog technology was an easy one,” said Lachot. “The Legacy would have been a great choice, but we went with the Vision to provide users with the flexibility to mix in stereo and surround simultaneously. API has made that sort of dual-mixing process intuitive, and our choice reflects a commitment to provide users with every option at the highest possible quality.”

“The initial concept of the studio was a simple one, based on organic architecture and the principle of working as much as possible with nature instead of against it,” explains Michael Tiemann. “As the studio build progressed, the genius of the design encouraged and allowed us to be more and more ambitious with our program. Ultimately we chose the API Vision console because, quite frankly, it was the only one that remained true to the values we established at the outset, while also having the power and flexibility we know we will need as we step forward into the future. The console’s breadth and depth is astonishing, and we are really enjoying the response we are getting from the professional community.”
