Stephen Arnold Music Opens New Facility In Sante FeOpens state of the art, audio recording and post facility in New Mexico (May 04, 2005)
Stephen Arnold Music, widely regarded as the leading provider of original and syndicated music to the broadcasting industry, with its musical compositions heard daily in over 100-million American homes on 300 television stations and numerous broadcast and cable TV networks, has opened a new, state of the art audio recording and post facility in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The announcement was made today by company founder/composer Stephen Arnold.
The new Santa Fe studio is located on three acres overlooking the Sangre de Christo Mountains on one side with the Jemez Mountains on the other. The site features a 500 sq ft control room, designed to mimic the one in the company’s Dallas location. In this way, projects can be worked on at any stage in either location. Additionally, the new Santa Fe facility also features four bedrooms and baths to accommodate clients.
“We wanted to be able to take whatever we did at our Dallas studio, save the mix and then complete the project in Santa Fe and visa versa,” said Mr. Arnold.
The new site has a 48 track RADAR V direct to disk recording system, complemented with a Yamaha DM-2000 digital mixing console and a Sound Construction custom desk. With 96 inputs, the system allows a good deal of flexibility, allowing Stephen Arnold Music’s composers to include all of their synthesizers, studio room inputs, Radar 48, and a 24 channel RME HDSP audio interface that can internally routed anywhere, without the need of an external patch bay.
Stephen Arnold Music’s Head Engineer Paul West and Creative Director Chad Cook both plan to spend about 25% of their time at the new location, and 75% at the company’s Dallas headquarters. Mr. Arnold will do the majority of his composing in Santa Fe as well.
Recent Stephen Arnold Music projects which were produced in the new Santa Fe location include three new “image” songs for the CBS affiliate in New Orleans, with tracks written in Santa Fe, tracking done in New Orleans, overdubs done in Dallas, and the final mix done back in Santa Fe. Also, the company’s recent contributions to CNN Hadline News, under the new “Headline Prime” programming block under the direction of JT Cantwell of CNN, were also produced in Santa Fe.
