Engineer/producer Christos Gatzimos comments on his PhantomFocus experience recording
and mixing the latest album for his multi-award winning artist mother

Nashville, TN: Christos Gatzimos, head engineer and studio manager at Audio 51 Music, and the son of multi-award winning recording artist Crystal Gayle, has recorded and mixed his mother’s latest album You Don’t Know Me with the aid of the studio’s PhantomFocus PFM HD-1000 Monitors

Gatzimos has also mixed several albums for Billboard multiple-top-ten artist Frankie Moreno and recorded country greats The Bellamy Brothers and is actively producing, engineering, mixing and mastering several independent artists from all across the country.

Gatzimos describes his PFS experience like this: “I can confidently say that getting the PFM HD-1000 Monitors is the best decision we’ve ever made for our studio! It allows our mixes to translate so well to other speakers that for the first time I no longer need to check my mixes in the car. They are also extremely smooth on the ears. I can spend 10+ hours in a day mixing on them without any ear fatigue. I couldn’t be happier with how the album turned out using this amazing monitor system.”

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.
