Microphone Virtual Showroom

Microphone Virtual Showroom

Roswell Pro Audio hosted their microphone Virtual Showroom at Ultimate Studios, Inc.

live stream production at ultimate studio inc los angeles

The pandemic has pushed us to find new ways to demonstrate gear. While Ultimate Studios, Inc is an official showroom for Roswell Pro Audio the pandemic has made it harder to do in-studio microphone demos.

Harnessing our live-streaming capabilities we helped Roswell Pro Audio develop a Virtual Showroom live stream that allows us to demonstrate how their microphones sound on a variety of sources. In real-time to engineers and producers anywhere in the world!

Iron Point recording at Ultimate Studios Inc for Roswell Pro Audio Virtual Showroom
Iron Point recording EP1-3

To date we have some 4 episodes. In the first 3 episode, featuring LA Rock band Iron Point, we recorded a full song using just 3 Roswell mics and 1 from MicrParts (Matt McGlynn’s other mic business). The Mini K87, Mini K47, Mini K47 KD and the MicParts SDC84. We tracked acoustic guitar, electric guitar, vocals, bass, drums and percussion. All live!

Gabby Gordon recording EP4

Episode 4 featured singer-songwriter Gabby Gordon on Piano and Vocals. We used 2 other Roswell mics for this Virtual Showroom live stream. The Colares and Delphos.

These Virtual Showrooms not only allow us to demonstrate the microphones in real-time all over the world but we can interact with viewers and answer questions. It’s a virtual studio hang!

Piano Bar Live Stream Concert Series

Piano Bar Live Stream Concert Series

We are back with a new, Piano Bar, Live Stream Concert Series at Ultimate Studios, Inc.! We are excited for this intimate show featuring an amazing artist, beautiful acoustic piano and fantastic music!

Our first artist is the uber talented Gabby Gordon! She will be performing 2 sets. Set one at 12pm and set two at 7pm.

Set1 12pm PST Youtube Link: https://youtu.be/HUbAijBPoeI
Set2 7pm PST Youtube Link: https://youtu.be/CnQ6vuEpTAs

Gabby Gordon is a danish/american soulful singer-songwriter. In her early years she was born and raised in a tiny town called “Ugelbølle” in Denmark. But since she was 8 years old she has lived in six different countries, and spent the last 15 years in the USA. where she came to study music and follow her dreams of being an artist.

Gabby regularly performs at live music venues and clubs in West Hollywood, writes and releases her own music and works as a studio/ session singer for many types of projects.

Her unique background and many different impressions of life influenced both her musical development and personality. Gabby sings her stories from her heart and soul, and travels all around her creative and emotional spectrum. Her voice is powerful and dynamic, often compared to Adele, Amy Winehouse, or Norah Jones.

Her lyrics are personal with a touch of ‘quirky’ and Gabby is know for drawing her audience in with charming life stories – filing the room with her melodic musicality and life loving big personality.

In recent years she has played hundreds of intimate concerts in Denmark, Germany, England, Holland, Sweden, Switzerland and Israel with her soulful pop trio “Ebb & Flow”.

Having just completed her very first solo tour around Denmark in the summer of 2020, Gabby is back in Los Angeles getting ready to record new music for her upcoming album.

New Live Stream Concert Series

New Live Stream Concert Series

Live Stream Concert

Live music is such an integral part of our everyday lives and although 2020 has stripped us of that. Well the crew at Ultimate Studios, Inc is trying to do our part to bring you amazing sounding music from some amazing independent artists.

Live Stream your concert from Ultimate Studios, Inc Los AngelesWith most clubs and venues being shut down right now independent artists have largely lost their ability to play their music live in front of an audience. While simple live streaming from phones and simple homes setups is great we are trying to bring recording quality live concerts straight to our home.

Ultimate Studios, Inc has a full HD live streaming rig with a 5 camera switch. The live room is well equipped with instruments (and plenty of space for social distancing!!!) and the audio rolls right off the Trident 88 console and intro the live stream. The audience at home basically you will hear the same thing that we hear in the control room.

We are offering this as a service to any artists that would like to put on a fantastic sounding and looking concert for their fans.

To kick this amazing live streaming service off we are launching a Live Streaming Concert Series. We will feature a diverse group of independent artists that we think are really great!

Our first artist is The Lao Tizer Band. Lao is an amazing and accomplished pianist and his band consists of some of the best players in the business; Ric Fierabracci (bass), Gene Coye (drums), Eric Marienthal (sax) and Tita Hutchison (vocals).

Don’t miss this special live stream concert on August 12, 2020 at 7pm PDT! You can watch the Live Stream here:

Recording Percussion

Recording Percussion

Recording Percussion with Ed Roscetti & Maria Martinez

recording drums and percussion with Ed Roscetti and Maria Martinez at Ultimate Studios, Inc Los Angeles

Getting to work with people that helped shape you as a musician is always a special treat. I had an absolute blast recording percussion with Ed Roscetti and Maria Martinez. Many moons ago I studied with both of them at Musicians Institute. Ed taught me how to play a true shuffle (we spent 3 weeks doing 1 single exercise until I could make it feel right!) and Maria helped me understand that latin grooves weren’t mere patterns to better your independence, they were words of a language.

We spent an entire day recording percussion and shooting promo video for Ed and Maria’s World Beat Rhythms Workshops. These workshops are really cool and are totally interactive. Ed and Maria perform using drumset along with a variety of hand drums and percussion instruments, moving from one instrument to another in the ensemble (exactly how they did it while we recorded). Instruments include drumset, djembe, doumbek, shaker, surdo, d-jun-d-jun, conga, batas, clay tones, mambo bell, shekere, klong yaw, tumbadora. But the cool part is how they get the ENTIRE audience involved. Everyone there gets a chance at hands on learning. It’s cool.

recording drums and percussion at Ultimate Studios, Inc Los Angeles

For our day of recording I had the challenge of setting of a mic configuration that would allow Ed and Maria to go to any instrument at any time and still capture that sound well. Whether it was the drumset, djembe, shakers, congas, surdo or tambourine, they needed the freedom to create and I had to capture it. At the same time all the instruments had to be in frame since they were recording with only 1 camera.

After a pre-production call with Ed about how they wanted to stage the instruments in the room I came up with a plan that would hopefully give them freedom to move where they wanted and not miss a note. It worked out really well so I decided to shoot a little behind the scenes video of the setup.

Ed and Maria groove so well together it’s contagious. Give the video a watch and you’ll see. Learn more about Ed at Roscetti Music and Maria at Drum On With Maria Martinez.

Happy goovin’ everyone!
