Tricky Stewart Renovates Triangle Sound Studios

Production Powerhouse Relies on the AWS SuperAnalogue Sound}

ATLANTA, GA–Triangle Sound Studios, home base to mega-producer Tricky Stewart and his highly successful RedZone Entertainment company, has undergone a major renovation around two Solid State Logic AWS 900+ SE consoles. Producing hits for superstars like Mariah Carey, Jamie Foxx, Usher, Jesse McCartney, Janet Jackson, Rihanna and Beyonce with the current hit “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” Stewart relies on SSL’s sterling SuperAnalogue sound to create the hits.

“I had really fallen in love with the sound of the K Series over the years,” says Stewart. “My engineers, Dave Pensado and Jaycen Joshua, work on K’s exclusively. When I found out about the AWS and really got into my due diligence of how these consoles were made, I found that I could get the sound we wanted and a controller for our Pro Tools systems in one package. So I was really happy about that because now I could get my K and eat it too.”

Triangle Studios is a private creative space for Tricky, The-Dream, Kuk and a group of in-house producers The Movement, Shawn K and Kelly. The AWS consoles live in Studios A and B, with Studio A addressing vocal space C and Studio B addressing vocal space D. A further MIDI suite is used by Kuk to create tracks. When a group of musicians are needed to play live, Tricky goes to studios like Roc the Mic in New York, an SSL facility, and The Boom Boom Room in Burbank, which features an AWS and 9000 J. The choice of two AWS 900+ consoles was made in part because of the on-console control of Triangle’s Pro Tools HD 7.4 capture systems.

“I think it’s just a very functional console for what’s going on in the industry,” Stewart states. “Back in the day when you mixed a record, it was done. Now that everything is on Pro Tools, you can come back five days later and hear something and make changes very easily. The AWS is really leading the charge by being able to control the digital workflow, while still providing the essential analog component to capture a great sound. From a producer standpoint, the AWS gives me that rich sound that you associate with SSL at a very reasonable price point. Just the name Solid State Logic immediately legitimizes your studio. You can’t put a dollar value on what that does because now you’re working with the standard and all artists recognize this.”
