Chase Park Transduction: Build it, and they will come. Actually, they were already there, building it themselves: some of Athens’ best musicians and technicians, making up their dream studio out of whole lumber, with a lot of help from their friends in a location out on the edge, and it turned out to be just right and has recorded all the best ever since and still does. Just another example of guys who love what they’re doing so much that they want to do it for others. Build a better studio, and nature will build a better musician—orsomething.
