AUGUST 2019; JESSUP, MD: In 2017,
studio, music label, production company and publishing group Made In Memphis
Entertainment (MIME) opened its doors to the public. MIME’s Chief Executive
Officer, legendary Stax Records songwriter David Porter, sought to revitalize
the Memphis music scene with his operation. Porter and his colleagues chose a
32 channel API Legacy AXS console as the centerpiece of the new studio.
“The legendary API sound combined with the AXS's feature
set made for an unbeatable combination for Studio A,” confirmed Porter.
“We couldn't be happier with our new console."
MIME has several in-house artists including Porcelan, Jessica Ray, and Matt
Michael, whose careers have taken off in the Memphis music scene since
partnering with MIME. Much of the work from MIME’s in-house artists has been
captured with the Legacy AXS. Also, “4U Recording” The commercial studio side
of Made In Memphis has seen recording sessions with Jozzy, Kirk Whalum, Jordan
Smith, Sarah Grace, Money Bagg Yo and Avon Dale to name a few.
A huge part of MIME’s success is due to
Chief Engineer Kerry Kernan’s considerable experience and professional
Kernan noted, “The AXS has proven to be
a versatile console for our projects from large band sessions, overdubs and
mixing to critical listening, etc. The many Input / output and routing options
are really useful as we transition quickly from different types of sessions. I
like the fact that the AXS remains a truly analog board, yet offers some nice
options for automation and DAW control.”
