Interview - Kenny Royster - Direct Image Studio

Recently Kenny purchased some upgrades for his RADAR 24 and we asked him how he got started in the recording industry and why he uses RADAR.

"I started out listening to great records on a great stereo with my Dad. We had a big four speaker system in our living room. It taught me to appreciate great sound, songs, musicians and singers.

I began playing guitar and singing and wanted to record myself. I started with an 8 track multi track recorder and eventually RADAR 24. I moved to L.A. when I was 21 and started recording in many Hollywood Studio's with my band. Then I moved to Nashville, TN, where my current studio is.

After moving to Nashville, TN, I opened a small analog studio and eventually met an iZ Technology Corp. representative. He let me demo a RADAR. I was working on a recording project for Mercury Records, used it on that project and eventually bought my own RADAR 24.

RADAR felt like the analog world that I had been recording in and the interface was the most musical. The converters are the best sounding in the world.

I've recorded over 8,000 songs and 4,000 of those on RADAR. RADAR has been rock solid and some of my customers teach Pro Tools in the recording schools here in Nashville, TN, but record their tracks with me, which says something about the sound of RADAR.

I have a studio with six isolation rooms, full of mojo, with RADAR as my main recorder. I use Vintech mic-preamps on every microphone. I use a Sony DMXR-100 digital console with total recall and automation.

Clients I've recorded using RADAR: Heidi Newfield, Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Paul Overstreet, Linda Davis, Buddy Jewell, Richie McDonald... and many #1 hit songwriters.

My favorite thing about recording today is convenience and stability. RADAR continues to be rock solid and I can depend upon it. My studio is booked 12 hours a day five days a week and confidence in my gear is a must."
