FORT WORTH BUILDS ITS STUDIO PROFILE WITH AN API 1608 CONSOLE

FORT WORTH, TEXAS: Over a span of 25 years and growing out of two previous studios, producer/engineer/studio owner Bart Rose has made his presence known in the Texas music scene through what is now called Fort Worth Sound. The studio works with both bands and singer/songwriters ranging from rock, country, blues and jazz. A new 1608 console by API completes the transformation of Fort Worth Sound’s Studio A, which has been a project in the making since 2008.

It took years to complete the construction of Fort Worth’s Studio A. “I wanted a console with amazing analog character, a small-ish footprint, and great reputation in the production world,” shares Bart. “There had been times when a prospective client looked at my control surface and asked ‘where’s the console?’ We think you will agree that Fort Worth Sound is one of the finest recording studios in the North Texas area.”

Studio A, which houses the 1608 console, accommodates the majority of the album recording and mixing projects. Since purchasing the console, Bart has used the console for several recording sessions. “I love the sound of the preamps. Just having amazing preamps with a high-pass filter yields great results on tracks that don’t need EQ.” Bart takes the sound coming from the studio into great consideration. The main recording room for Studio A has twelve-foot ceilings, independent climate control for each room, and floating floors to avoid low-frequency rumble from city traffic.

Since 2008, Fort Worth Sound has worked with major artists including The Toadies, Los Lobos, and Pat Green. Soon after the 1608 commissioning, the studio hosted a very successful two-night open house, where past and perspective clients were shown the new capabilities of Studio A. Bart has confidence that the purchase of the 1608 will diversify his studio profile. “I have a feeling this console will attract clients who wouldn’t have recorded with me before I had an analog console on the front end.”
