Nashville, TN: Carl Tatz Design® LLC (CTD) recently completed a custom installation of the Carl Tatz Signature Series™ Room Kit by Auralex® for master software scientist and musician Richard Eade at his personal facility BARH Records in Huntsville, Alabama.
The BARH Records PhantomFocus MixRoom™ features the unparalleled PhantomFocus PFM UHD-1000 Monitors, PhantomFocus PFM ICE Cube subwoofers, PhantomFocus eChair and the PhantomFocus Edition™ Sterling Modular console.
Eade, who develops GIS (geographic information system) software for a leading GIS company in Huntsville and has been both playing and recording music since elementary school, comments, “My long-time desire to own a PhantomFocus MixRoom is the grand culmination of years of recording and mixing in home studio spaces. Now I finally have the real thing, and it takes my breath away every time I use it.”
BARH Records is also one of the latest facilities to have the PFS™ PFM UHD-1000 Monitors installed, including the new PFM ICE Cube subwoofers. “The PFM UHD-1000 Monitors are sublimely detailed and massive sounding but at the same time warm and enveloping. Listening to them in the MixRoom, I immediately sense that I’m hearing and feeling just the music; it's like the room and the speakers disappear and I’m in the moment with the music.”

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.
