Nashville, TN: Multi-platinum/award-winning L.A.-based engineer and mixHaus Studios owner Richard Furch continued to rely on the precision of the acclaimed PhantomFocus™ System (PFS™) to mix multi-media superstar Tyrese Gibson's sonically stunning new blockbuster album Black Rose.
"What a week! @tyrese," Tweets Furch. Black Rose opens at #1 on the Billboard 200, #1 Top R&B/HipHop Albums, #1 R&B albums, #1 Apple Music, and #1 iTunes overall and R&B charts. It’s #1 in 15 countries’ iTunes charts as of August 1. “It’s great music and I’m proud of having mixed and recorded it," notes Furch.
TEC Award-winning studio designer and creator of the PhantomFocus™ System monitor tuning protocol Carl Tatz, principal of Carl Tatz Design LLC (CTD), states, "Nothing is more gratifying to us than our clients’ successes with the PFS." Tatz goes on to point out, "The immense value and satisfaction of working with the PFS is reiterated by users’ informative testimonials."
Read Richard's full PhantomFocus™ System testimonial here:
"I've worked out of my own studio, the mixHaus in Los Angeles, for the last five years, and always had multiple top-of-the-line speaker systems tuned by some of the leading acousticians in the industry. But I always felt that mixing music should be more effortless and translate better. Enter the Carl Tatz PhantomFocus™ System. Carl and his team came in and tweaked the room, installed my speakers in the best location for this particular room and implemented the PFS for an accurate response down to 25 Hz. The sound staging is impressive and the vocals sound like they are right in front of you, a feeling akin to going from 480p to 4K HD resolution in the video world. But on top of that, the system doesn't just sound pleasing, it translates expertly. It most certainly gives me peace of mind that what I hear is accurate to what the record sounds like, which shaves off hours from the mix process and results in better mixes all over the map. Client approval is faster, and I can't imagine going back to any other system. I keep recommending it to my colleagues. Thank you Carl for installing the first PhantomFocus™ System on the West Coast at the mixHaus."

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.
