East Oak Media mixing suite

•April 21, 2012 • Leave a Comment

East Oak Media, LLC, is a company created to manage the work of Ann Wicker and Mark Williams.    Ann is a writer and editor, and Mark is in the recording business.   

With the new economy and new technology, Mark is primarily working as a mixer for music projects, and East Oak Mixing is a studio created specifically for his work.

The selected space for the studio is quite compact and presented some real design and fabrication challenges.     Clarity, Incorporated was contracted to handle the turnkey creation of the studio with Jeff Hedback of HD Acoustics hired as designer.    The core Clarity team included Rich Mason, Doug Burns, and Bill Weir.    Rich kept the numbers straight and the materials flowing in, Doug is the master fabricator for the acoustic devices, and Bill Weir is the mad scientist creator of the custom monitors.

Rob Preston of RFI Audio connected and installed the equipment, carefully crafting a thousand or more solder joints and customizing some of the interface hardware.

Randy Blevins of Blevins Audio in Nashville, TN rebuilt and supplied the classic MCI console and MCI tape machine.

James Jackson is the master cabinetmaker that worked with Bill Weir to build the monitor cabinets.

David Gallant is the electrician that installed the various power lines and filter devices.

Robert Hildreth designed and installed the ductless AC system.
