It has been a real treat to work with all these amazing people and the amazing staff at Sirius. Such a Honor to approach this room in its raw state and to work with this orig team to bring it back to life for 1 more night, only once in a lifetime will i get this orig team to work with in this special building, i am truely honored and blessed to hve this chance.
Its amazing how much the SBS Slammer at System has brang to SBS which is what got me this account, the president told me he wants a hifi system and if he has to sacrifice the look with big speakers on the floor because that what will sound the best thats what he wants, great to work with a guy that knows what he wants lol.
Working the last 6 weeks with the guys at Sirius have been amazing its nice to be in the corp meetings at Sirius and in production meetings in this raw space Studio 54. They are all concerned about everything they do works around the sound system so it sounds the best it can. It has been nice to get a phone call today from the President of Sirius thanking me for making everything so easy for them to understand and there life so easy its been a breeze for them they rarely have it with a vendor they say.
The Debute of the SBS Electronics Iso-Q2
For such an amazing event i have sped up production on this amazing new processor, and to be able to debute it in THIS Space with the orig djs from Studio 54 Nicky Siano and a few others and feed the board for the live feed on Sirius this amazing music thru this KILLER new processor for all to hear & having these djs hands on the SBS Iso-Q2 is even more amazing..
I will start a new thread soon on the Iso-Q2 soon with pre production spy pic, specs, feat, dimensions, warranty and prices.
i will be posting raw space pics of Studio 54 on my Facebook page and then dressed up party pics with the system pics on my Facebook page, ill put a few on wave for you guys to check out
from the space and they pulled an entire light show 720 ch worth of lighting, new and orig fixtures of Studio 54, which i feel is the best show, old and new, keeps the show fresh..
Got so much compliments, from Nicky Siano, Jellybean, Aviccii loved the system and was in heaven did not wanna stop playing, Leroy Washington and people in the crowd were so happy with the sound.
Leroy told me some amazing stories when they put Studio together, said it is an acoustical nightmare, he told me how long it took to get the room really rt. How much trouble they had with the room in those days, the first thing he told me was this room is a disaster to tune and get rt he said good luck with this space lol.
He couldnt believe what this system was doing in this space, Leroy was there when i was real timing it, and was shocked within the hour time they gave me, i had only 1 hour to tune this huge theatre how it sounded. He said THIS is all Analog ?? i said yes except cd players ofcourse, he said any boom boxes, or 3bx processors like that? i said nope,,, just the prototype SBS Iso-Q2 he said ya that piece sounds sweet cant wait to play with that bad boy. Leroy said and your your getting this much freq out of these old records without and processors like that i said yup, AND you have a rane 2016 in here????, i says yup, thats what Nicky wanted to play on lol, he said man your really got it going on. i take my hat off to u, i said thanks im just happy you love it, cause U really know this room, he said yup and you got the mids to have the sweetness they had in here, he said you did your thang, i thanked him again
Once the night began Leroy was saying how its allll there you hear all the proper harmonies in the source no holes in the source, and i did such an amazing job and was so nice to meet me. After he played on the set, he said it was such a pleasure to play on such a fine system and he is looking forward to playing on a SBS system in the future, so i said next time your in town you need to come to System to check out the Slammer, and because of that room in LIC is how i got this account to do sound @ Studio. he said if thats the room that got me the shot here then that system MUST be good, then i def need to hear it.

Got one of the biggest compliments from Michael Overington the manager from the orig Studio 54 at the end of the night, telling me how amazing it sounded, he hasent heard or fealt sound like this in 30 yrs and im the best, and is going to speak to Ian Schrager about me doing sound in there hotels, they need systems in rooms that move air, i said i love moving air, he said i know i been on the floor all night lol.
I had a few flash backs, stood in some of the same places on the floor watching the lights come down like i used to in awe and where i wld hang in the mezzanine i used to back in the day.
Got so many compliments from Nicky, Leroy & Jellybean On the SBS Elec Iso-Q2, they were so excited it was the world premiere grand showing of this amazing piece in Studio 54 and broadcasted thru it, they said they were so pleased with it and so happy to be the 1st ones to use it in a club.
