I am currently installing the new studio facilities at 160 Mass Ave at Berklee. I have been designing and helping to build listening and recording rooms. Acoustic testing and measurement and then recommendations for treatments.
I was issued a patent for the Acoustic Ramp diffuser that I came up with while I was at UML’s doing my SRT Master’s.
Larry Clawson’s new XMix studio construction is nearly completed.I designed the control room as a mastering studio first and production studio second. The room sounds great!
Having recorded three GRAMMY®-nominated albums, received multiple internationally competitive recording awards from the Audio Engineering Society, and having worked across the United States and Canada, D. James Tagg (Jamie) has helped clients achieve and maintain high quality recordings for over 15 years. Jamie is passionate about presenting spatial realism in recordings. Whether it be the perfect capture and a true-to-period presentation of a live classical performance, or constructing depth and space in a pop mix, the artist is always put in the best possible musical space.
In addition to setting standards in recordings, Jamie also develops new ways of capturing and processing music in both acoustic and signal processing domains. After many hours of subjective listening tests, he has developed and published research on a new stereo mic technique called STAAG (Stereo Technique for Augmented Ambience Gradient). He also has developed/programmed spatial processing tools through digital signal processing (DSP) for his own use, as well as for THAT Corporation’s dBx-TV.
