ATC MONITORS HELP MICHAEL BISHOP EARN HIS NINTH GRAMMY AWARD FOR “TRANSMIGRATION”

transmigration.JPG

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – MARCH 2010: Michael Bishop (recording, mixing and mastering engineer) and Elaine Martone (producer) have created a compelling and timeless work in Transmigration, a Super Audio CD release on Telarc Records devoted to honor and remembrance. The recording recalibrates the creative and emotional possibilities of surround sound, a fact reflected in the team’s recent win of “Best Surround Sound Album” at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, which earned Bishop his ninth Grammy and Martone her fifth. As with his other award-winning recordings, Bishop relied on ATC monitors throughout recording, mixing and mastering phases to reveal the undecorated truth, allowing him to correct problems that other monitors would have blurred over. As a result, Transmigration is compelling when played back on any system and worthy of the industry’s highest honor. more

DANLEY GENESIS HORNS RIVAL THE ROAR OF JETS AT THE SINGAPORE AIRSHOW

DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS – TODAY’S GOLD STANDARD AT A BARGAIN PRICE POINT

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – FEBRUARY 2010: After spending more than a decade with the drib-drab sounds of passionless loudspeakers clamped to the rafters, the students and faculty at Eldorado High School in Las Vegas were happy to hear that the school district had approved an audio retrofit for their gymnasium – the site not only of sporting events, but also of speeches and pep rallies.
