Manhattan Center Productions Prepares for Bigger Piece of Recording World Pie

(DGIwire) – Back in April 2014, many of Lady Gaga’s “little monsters”—as well as fans of New Zealand’s pop darling Lorde—were on hand to attend their consecutive performances in the intimate setting of the Roseland Ballroom. Both events were bittersweet: Roseland shut its doors that month. At one time a New York institution, rent costs and other factors made staying open impossible, according to Roseland’s owners.

While Roseland will be missed, New York still offers both performance spaces and state-of-the-art recording facilities. In fact, just one city mile away—20 blocks being a city mile—sits the answer to Lady Gaga and Lorde’s every recording need. Manhattan Center Productions (MCP) is a mecca for all things music, not to mention that Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom and Grand Ballroom are “must play there” performance venues on top of the list for many of music’s biggest stars.

MCP’s suite of recording studios and television production facilities provide the latest technology, which is why it is said to set the industry standard for sound and video, and regularly attracts top musical icons.

“The interconnection between the audio recording studios and fully HD television control rooms makes MCP the ideal location for any multimedia production,” says Darren Moore, Chief Audio Engineer at MCP. “The acoustics here are top-notch, and our studios have become the standard for recording concerts and soundtracks. Whether an artist is performing classical or rock music with a full orchestra or is in a small chamber ensemble, the sound quality they get will be impeccable.A recording studio called the Log Cabin has become one of the most sought-after recording spaces, while another called Studio 7 offers a complementary custom-modified Neve VR 96-channel console recording to 5.1 surround on a Pro Tools HD Accel system, or to any of a variety of digital or analog multitrack tape formats. With the added benefit of its multiple video recording facilities and full post-production, Manhattan Center Productions accommodates the most demanding clientele.

Roseland’s closure, along with growing demand for a high-end, medium-sized space, has opened up new market opportunities for MCP.
