Studio Design

Our facilities were designed by Steve Durr and built by Ben Kramer. Main monitors were designed by Steve Durr and constructed by Travis Smith, with components from Altec, TAD and Bag End. Main monitor signal chain by Mike Schatzlein and Jake Saghi, with Trinnov crossover and amps from Hafler and Crown. Focal Trio6 Be and Yamaha NS-10M nearfield monitors. MTRX and DADman monitor and cue routing.

TRC Studios Design

Special thanks to Avid for including us in the S6 beta program. The S6 is an awesome instrument, and it just keeps getting better.

Very special thanks to Terry Palmer, technical audio consultant, for giving us silent audio wiring that's ultra resistant to clicks, pops, hum, RF, and human error. If he's good enough for Garth, he's good enough for us.
