Stadium Red’s Music Creation And Lifestyle Company Spans All Genres With AKG Microphones

As one of the most successful and relatively new studios in the recording and production industry, Stadium Red relies on a full arsenal of AKG microphones to provide the best customer service, while making award-winning hits for clients. Built from an older, dormant studio space, Stadium Red has won eight GRAMMYâ Awards in its first four years of business, including four out of 11 nominations in nine categories in 2011.

Located in Harlem in New York, NY, the studio was purchased in July 2007 and opened that September as a one-room space. Founder and CEO Claude Zdanow has since built his ‘music creation and lifestyle company’ into a 6,000-square-foot state-of-the-art space with four studios and a mastering suite.

Equestrian School in Austria Hits Target with BSS® Audio Soundweb™ London Installation

In a unique and challenging audio project, BSS Audio was chosen for sound processing at the new Glock Horse Performance Center in the Austrian town of Treffen bei Villach, in Carinthia.
