Best Blues Album – 2014
Step Back (Johnny Winter)
Digital power with analog feel in a creative space. That’s how we told the design team to build the studio. And they delivered. Our impeccably engineered recording space provides an acoustically balanced canvas to bring your vision to life. From drums that rock to the crystalline clarity of our Yamaha G-1 baby grand piano, the room works flawlessly.
After building our control room, we brought in Sam Berkow, designer of JBL Smart Software—the industry-leading acoustic measurement and sound-system optimization package—to tweak the listening environment. After the final alterations, Sam insisted that IMP Studios had one of the best imaging control rooms in the Northeast. Our clients have been agreeing ever since.
Great space. Great gear. Neumann and Telefunken microphones, Avid and Apogee hardware and a Euphonix digitally controlled analog console are typical of the gear you’ll work with.
