Carl Tatz Gives Lecture At Summer NAMM TEC Tracks

- Powerful Near-Field Monitoring Techniques Revealed -

Nashville, TN: TEC Award-winning studio designer and monitoring expert Carl Tatz, principal of Carl Tatz Design LLC (CTD), gave a lecture at TEC Tracks at the Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, TN, where he shared his experience and insight while providing some useful tools that attendees could apply in their personal studios. Tatz covered many topics during his talk, including exposing the truth about near-field monitoring anomalies, understanding the challenges and solutions to getting good bass response, and finding out how to set up the most important element in their control rooms.

Using diagrams illustrating proprietary techniques via video displays as well as frequency response and phase graphs from actual client monitoring systems, Tatz was able to demonstrate what issues arise in control room near-field monitor setups related to low-end and stereo imaging and what can be done to maximize results. In doing so, Tatz revealed a bit of his acclaimed PhantomFocus™ System monitor tuning protocol. 

Attendees were able to have specific questions about their personal studios answered during a Q&A period and later at a meet-and-greet post lecture gathering. "Carl was able to explain to us some pretty complicated stuff in surprisingly simple terms that was very useful," stated attendee engineer Vincent Matone.

Tatz went on to comment, "These lecture venues are really fun, and it’s rewarding for me to be able to share some tools that the attendees won't learn about anywhere else."

About the PhantomFocus™ System
Carl Tatz Design’s proprietary PhantomFocus™ 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 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 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 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 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 HD TV. Once you experience a PhantomFocus System, you can’t go back.
