Alan Venitosh, TELEFUNKEN Director Of Operations and project producer, explained, “Our company has a rich history of innovation in the recording world and this 3D studio experience is a new concept we’d like to share with the audio community.”

The performance was recorded through the Power Station NE’s immaculately restored Neve 8068 console with a full range of TELEFUNKEN microphones. In addition, the performance space was photographed using high-definition 3D cameras and the exact microphone / instrument locations can be viewed through the immersive and interactive presentation.

“Power Station New England was one of the first professional recording studios I worked at as an intern in the late 1990’s,” recalls TELEFUNKEN founder and CEO Toni Fishman, who also served as executive producer for the 3D project. “I had the opportunity to work under producer Greg Ladanyi (Jackson Browne, Don Henley, Warren Zevon) and it was my first real exposure to classic recording microphones like the ELA M 251 and U47, as well as the large format Neve console. Power Station NE holds special memories for me and it’s an honor to be back in this same location where I first witnessed the beauty of great recording.”

By clicking on the microphone models located within the 3D immersive studio picture, the viewer can hear the source instrument or voice isolated from the mix. Viewers also find recording information, specifications and additional details about the microphones and direct boxes used during the sessions.

"Our studio loves working with TELEFUNKEN,” say Power Station NE chief engineer Evan Bakke. “We use their microphones on a daily basis and call on the company exclusively to maintain and repair our vintage tube mics. Alan and Toni are the best at what they do." http://powerstationne.com 

Mike Demateo, who helmed the 3D video production, remarked, “Toni and Alan immediately understood the vision I had for using Matterport 3D technology as a unique sonic educational and demonstration tool. It’s great to be working on the ground floor of progressive technology with these guys.”
