Major League Baseball player Jake Peavy is probably best known as a pitcher for the Chicago White Sox and San Francisco Giants, among others, but now he's adding Studio Owner to his resume.
Dauphin Street Sound in Mobile, AL comes from a combination of Peavy's longtime passion for music, as well as his passion for giving back to the community. The studio already has a mentoring program in place for college-student interns, and has joined with the local Boys and Girls clubs to offer music and audio education to kids.
The studio also touts an expert staff and the top-notch gear that one might expect from a two time World Series winner.
An API 32-channel 1608 console with automation serves as the centerpiece of Studio A. Grammy-winning Engineer Trina Shoemaker, who was asked to offer personal recommendations for the studio equipment and workflow, explains that she wanted to outfit Dauphin Street Sound with the best of the best:
"[We] acquired a gear inventory that could compete with Sunset Sound or The Clubhouse up in New York. The best gear, things people spend years collecting."
If you're looking to build a major league recording studio, it definitely helps to have a major league console.
