Nathaniel Kunkel’s Studio Without Walls Delivers Award-Winning Projects with HARMAN’s JBL LSR Studio Monitors

Nathaniel Kunkel includes JBL Professional LSR Series studio monitors as a crucial part of his Studio Without Walls business.

NORTHRIDGE, California – Nathaniel Kunkel has a unique take on recording and mixing: instead of making the artist come to the recording studio, he can bring the studio to the artist. Kunkel’s Studio Without Walls is based on a transportable production system that allows him to capture performances and produce records wherever the artist feels most comfortable and creative. And, Kunkel notes, it wouldn’t be possible without HARMAN’s JBL LSR Series studio monitors.

Kunkel has earned GRAMMY(r) Awards for his work with B.B. King and Robin Williams, and received an Emmy(r) for “A&E In Concert: Sting: Sacred Love.” Other recent projects include mixes for The Police, Carole King, Darlingside, and the recent tribute album Listen to Me: Buddy Holly-produced by Peter Asher and featuring performances by Brian Wilson, Stevie Nicks, Ringo Starr, Zooey Deschanel, Cobra Starship, Lyle Lovett, Linda Ronstadt and many others.

“The JBL LSR studio monitors are absolutely unique in their ability to give me good mixes and accurate sound wherever I go,” said Kunkel. “Although there are other speakers that I like, the LSR monitors are the only ones that give me consistent and repeatable results regardless of the room I use them in. When I do a mix in one room using LSR, I know it’s going to translate well when I listen to the mix in another environment.”

Depending on the project, Kunkel uses the JBL LSR6300 or LSR4300 Series monitors for Studio Without Walls. “The RMC [Room Mode Correction] is invaluable in that it compensates for the peaks in a room’s low-frequency response and the differences in bass when speakers are placed closer to or farther away from the rear wall,” he said. “With this feature, I know I’m hearing accurate bass no matter where I take the speakers.”

“I know that when I’m recording and mixing on the LSR’s I’m not missing something that will be a surprise when I get into another room,” Kunkel added. “In fact, setup of the LSR4300′s is ridiculously easy. I just plug the calibration microphone into one of the speakers, push a button and the system does the rest. What could otherwise take hours takes seconds. I’ll always set the speakers up for midfield listening if room allows. I try and avoid the console surface reflections as much as possible.”

In addition, Kunkel noted the LSR monitors provide remarkably high output even though they’re compact. “When I have to carry a full surround sound speaker setup to a client, that becomes an important consideration,” Kunkel said.
