Nashville, TN: Multi-platinum and GRAMMY® award-winning engineer Bob Bullock has recently upgraded his Carl Tatz Design® PhantomFocus MixRoom™ with the company’s new PFM UHD-1000p Mk II Master Reference Monitors. Bullock, a longtime PhantomFocus user, made the decision to upgrade his monitors after experiencing a PFM 1000 demo. “After already having the most accurate control room that I have ever worked in by Carl Tatz Design, I went to a demo of Carl’s own PhantomFocus line of studio monitors and was even more blown away with the imaging and articulate detail of the system,” comments Cool Springs Mix owner Bob Bullock.
The UHD-1000P Mk II is the newest addition to the PFM 1000 line and, like the entry-level HD-1000 monitor, utilizes a Straight-Line™ internal crossover that requires only two channels of amplification per pair compared to the premium UHD-1000a bi-amp model, which requires four channels. The UHD-1000p (passive) shares the same wide imaging as its bi-amp sibling, but at a more affordable price point.

About the PhantomFocus™ Monitor System
Carl Tatz Design’s proprietary PhantomFocus™ Monitor System monitor tuning protocol offers clients a unique opportunity to have a truly world-class monitoring experience in their room, no matter how modest. All speakers interact with the room they’re in, and the PhantomFocus Monitor System allows any monitors to perform at maximum accuracy – in any room – with a full 20Hz-to-20KHz frequency response and pinpoint imaging in what some owners have described as a “holographic sweet spot.” It is a new level of sonic accuracy that engenders easier, better and faster mixing that translates well in any environment.
There are approximately fifty steps in the proprietary PhantomFocus Monitor System implementation protocol, including phase alignment, system damping, speaker decoupling and isolation mounting, careful assessment of engineer/speaker placement relative to primary axial room modes, proprietary laser-calibrated speaker distancing and angle alignments, digitally-controlled crossover points and slopes for pass filtering, and, proprietary, multiband parametric equalization.
Hardware solutions can include monitor stands, concrete, Sorbothane™ and other isolation and damping materials, custom floating plenum mounts, subwoofer systems and custom digital processors. The PhantomFocus Monitor System evaluation and implementation is a full two-day process and can be applied to near-fields, mid-fields, and large soffit mounted monitors, regardless of manufacturer.
Carl Tatz Design installs the PhantomFocus Monitor System in existing control rooms and in all studios that are designed and built from the ground up by CTD. The result is like the aural equivalent of HDTV. Once you experience a PhantomFocus Monitor System, you can’t go back.
