Carl Tatz Design chosen as a 2024 TEC Award finalist for Jam Band Studio

Ryan Frankel’s Gainesville, FL PhantomFocus MixRoom™ Studio, Jam Band Studio, has been nominated as a finalist in the NAMM 2024 TEC Awards competition in the Studio Design Project category.

Nashville, TN: Carl Tatz (CTD) and Jam Band Studio has been nominated as a finalist for the 2024 NAMM TEC Awards in the Studio Design Project category by a prestigious panel of audio professionals. “Once again we are humbled to be nominated by our peers for this important award. We never take it for granted, and it’s always an honor to be recognized and share the spotlight with our studio designer colleagues,” comments Carl Tatz, Principal at Carl Tatz Design LLC.

Jam Band Studio owner Ryan Frankel shares his CTD PhantomFocus MixRoom Studio experience: “In an effort to make Jam Band Studio North Florida’s premier recording studio, I can’t speak highly enough about the team at Carl Tatz Design. From the initial concept to the build out of the studio, the Carl Tatz Design team was knowledgeable, helpful, and incredible to work with. They helped with every aspect of the studio design and the results have been stunning. Everyone who walks in and listens to the PFM UHD-1000 Reference Monitor System, from professional producers and engineers to recording artists, marvels at the clarity, depth, and overall balance of the system. For the first time it really feels like you can hear precision in the mix, details of the reverb tails, and a sense of three dimensions of the sources.”

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.
