Mediasound

Mediasound

Profile:
Recording and mastering studio, based in in Manhattan, New York.
Owned and founded in 1969 by John Roberts (50) and Joel Rosenman,
inside a former Baptist Church in downtown Manhattan.
Supervision for the studio's planning and design was entrusted to Harry Hirsch
and Bob Walters was involved since the early days.
The studio was famous and appreciated over the years for the ability of its engineers
to better adapt to the most varied musical genres (Rock, Soul, R&B, Jazz, etc ...)
and for the particular sound that was obtained from its recording studios,
in particular Studio A, which had been set up in the nave of the pre-existing church.
Mediasound Studios closed in the early 1990s.
