owner Ben Grosse
The Mix Room
may have been first built to satisfy its busy mix master, Ben Gross'
work (most recently Depeche Mode, Disturbed) load but the three-room
world-class facility in Burbank has lately been host to many top
artists and mixers to include: Audioslave, Cold, Usher, Chris Botti,
BT, Hilary Duff, Eminem, Perry Farrell, to name a few. More recently,
Motley Crue with Chester of Linkin Park recorded a remake of Home
Sweet Home at The Mix Room to benefit the victims of Hurricane
Rick Beato mixed Trey Anastasio (Fish solo project) and Eddie Kramer
mixed Suns Of Neptune.

Manson), Journey, Mya, Usher, Sugar Ray, Third Eye Blind, Soluna,
Luther Vandross, Velvet Revolver, A Perfect Circle, Dave Matthews
Band, Kid Rock, Madonna, Guster, to name a few.
If discs from
Fuel, Filter, Ben Folds, Vertical Horizon and Six Pense None The
Richer have made it to your CD player or Itune list, you've likely
been listening to the mix and production magic of studio owner Ben
blocked the 9K room to deliver Antonio Orozco's Universal release.
"I like the well-stocked outboard and the full-service support
that you expect from a solid studio like the Mix Room." says
Antonio Orozco Sessions - L-R: Xavi Perez, producer and mixer Rafa
Sardina at the Mix Room Studio B.
The Mix Room
offers ProTools HD and Mix Plus systems and for the SSL fans, studios
B offers an SSL
9000 series consoles. With the new addition of the XL 9000 K series
super analogue console in studio A, the owner says: "For me,
the XL offers all of the features of the J and adds powerful surround
options. The XL will give me the ability to easily switch between
regular stereo mixing and 5.1 for DVD, DVD-Audio and SACD. This
will allow us to stay ahead of the curve in terms of current and
future technology. Best of all, the XL is so similar to a J, in
terms of interface and functionality, that it will integrate seamlessly
into our environment."
Grosse brought in the renowned designer
Vincent Van Haaff to update all three of the studios rooms
a year ago, including Studio A, which houses the new SSL K series
