STATE-OF-THE-ART STUDIO INSTALLS API VISION

PITTSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA – MAY 2011: Pittsboro, North Carolina-After several years of careful studio design and construction, Manifold Recording is the newest owner of a 64-channel API Vision console. The studio, which is situated on sixteen acres of trees, meadows, ponds and gardens, will “honor music and artistry” while using state-of-the-art technology to capture musical creations.

“API makes gear that makes people passionate about recording and producing music,” said Michael Tiemann, who co-owns Manifold Recording with his wife, Amy Tiemann. “There is an energy one feels when seeing their trademarked knobs and knowing their potential to deliver. API has never sacrificed quality in the pursuit of the latest fad or fashion, but rather they have built new products, like the Vision console, on the rock-solid foundation of proven designs.”

Construction of Manifold Recording began in early 2008, but renowned studio designer and acoustician Wes Lachot began working on its layout as early as October 2006. Both the main studio and the studio annex display a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired architectural sensibility, and were designed from the ground up to be “purpose built.” In fact, Lachot designed the entire studio space around the engineering board’s equilateral listening triangle.

“I designed Manifold’s Studio A to be quite a large tracking room,” said Lachot. “These kinds of rooms are rarely built anymore, but they allow for such a beautiful acoustic sound. We felt that the room really deserved to have a top-rate analog console. Nothing else would do it justice.”

Tiemann agrees. “With the API Vision now installed in the control room, the true genius of Wes’s design is evident,” he stated. “The console is perfectly proportioned, perfectly situated, and perfectly comfortable in its new surroundings. Many control rooms have more console than they can comfortably fit in the available space. Some rooms have too little console space. We have a perfect balance that inspires confidence and creativity.”

Manifold Recording is slated to open June 2011.
