International Mix at Gravity Studios

Gravity Studios played host to an international mixing session for the touring British rock band, Anathema, during the band’s two-day stop in Chicago before a performance at the House of Blues. This mix session gave Anathema the opportunity to simultaneously tour the States while working on their album. Anathema used Studio A at Gravity to monitor real-time audio sent from producer Christer Cederberg’s studio in Norway; video conferencing to provide communication for mix adjustments between the band in Chicago, Cederberg in Norway, and a session guitarist in Liverpool; and screen-sharing for the band to view the Pro Tools session from Cederberg’s studio as he made changes.

Cederberg set up a streaming Internet radio station that the band could access at Gravity. “We ran through our HD hardware in Studio A, which allowed the band to monitor their session through our ATC SCM25A and Yamaha NS-10 monitors,” says Tim Yamaya, studio manager/producer/engineer. “The screen sharing was set up via Skype, and it allowed the connection of multiple screens and users to one video-conferencing session at once. This was the first time that we had done this at Gravity.”

Meanwhile, in other studio news, the Silversun Pickups recorded new material, produced by Doug McBride; and Mike Penny recorded new tracks by OAR, mixed by McBride. The studio also hosted the Alabama Shakes while the band was in town.
