Jacksonville, Florida - June 2014:
The final steps are being taken in constructing a brand new recording studio in Jacksonville — The Freq Zone. Studio owner Nathan Hamiel lives a double life as a sound engineer and computer security analyst. To fit the needs of his new recording and mixing space, Hamiel has commissioned THE BOX to provide the rich, classic sound it achieves in an all-inclusive small-format package.
"I love THE BOX. It provides the sonic character of a large format console in a smaller footprint," shares Hamiel, who was guided through the decision process by Nick Schenkel at Sweetwater. "The sound is everything you'd expect from API — big and punchy. I also like the fact I can have it be the centerpiece and augment it with outboard gear of my choice, creating my own personal sound."
The studio is undergoing its final preparations, including a new mix/master/production room, as well as a custom desk, which will be completed in June.
