Producer Steve Levine Mixes Patch William On JBL LSR6300 Studio Monitors At British Grove Studios
Levine is famous for producing all of Culture Club’s greatest hits and albums by The Clash, The Beach Boys, Motorhead, Ziggy Marley, Gary Moore and China Crisis. In addition, Levine is currently the chair of the Music Producer’s Guild.
Working with Patch William, Levine produced a 5.1 mix using JBL LSR6300 Series studio monitors and the mix translated perfectly to the Harman Kardon Logic 7 HD system in the Range Rover.
The band and I really enjoyed using the JBL LSR monitors on the Harman 5.1 sessions,” Levine said. “I think everyone agreed the mixes translated very well from the control room to the Logic system in the Range Rover. As a young engineer in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, I had a lot of experience with JBL’s famous 4311 speakers. It brought back fond memories as the LSR6300’s sounded just as fresh and punchy as I remember.”
“JBL designed the LSR6300 Series to help engineers create mixes that sound excellent in any environment, from a high-end recording studio to the cabin of a luxury automobile,” said Peter Chaikin, Director of Marketing, Recording & Broadcast, JBL Professional. “The event at British Grove demonstrated Harman’s unique ability to provide not only a superb listening experience in a car, but also the precision and quality to meet demanding requirements in professional music recording control rooms.”
The JBL LSR6300 Series monitors incorporate patented dual-drive transducers, capable of delivering flat response at all listening levels and very high SPL. Using Linear Spatial Reference design criteria, JBL takes 70 measurements, 360 degrees around the speaker providing 1200 times the data of a single on-axis measurement. Using this data, JBL designs critical components to deliver very neutral response in a broad range of acoustic conditions.JBL LSR studio monitors
