View Single Page

Students at The Blackbird Academy in Nashville are going on a different kind of field trip.

That’s because the audio education facility is continuing its Carl Tatz lecture series on studio monitoring. Led by instructor and Co-Director of Education, Professor Mark Rubel, students are taught the proprietary monitor positioning techniques that are used in Tatz’s TEC Award-winning PhantomFocus MixRoom designs.
