As of today, Cutters’ Another Country has opened its fifth room, Sound 5, to accommodate the expertise of post audio veteran Peter Erazmus, who joined the audio company last May alongside engineers John Binder, David Gerbosi, Drew Weir and Erik Widmark.
“Peter is an excellent mixer, someone I’ve known since we were at Columbia College and stayed friends with and glad we can finally work together,” says Another Country’s EP, Tim Konn.
“He has great instincts when it comes to sound and how to achieve what the clients want and then takes it a step further.”
Since joining Another Country, Erazmus has been mixing sound for such high profile commercials as McDonald’s All Day Breakfast for Leo Burnett, Aleve for Energy BBDO and Marriot’s Courtyard Hotels for McGarryBowen.
Sound 5 features Pro Tools and the latest array of plug-ins and sound design tools, says Konn, and its design is based off the first room sound designer/partner that John Binder built at Another country more than 23 years ago.
Acoustician was LA-based Carl Yanchar of Yanchar Design and Consulting Group, who has lent his expertise to all of Another Country’s sound studios.
The room’s primary goals were to give Erazmus a fully equipped, modern, comfortable studio with access to the shared server platform containing archives of every job the company has worked on over the past 23 years.
“We never throw anything away; it’s an added bonus of bringing your work to Another Country,” Binder says with a smile.
“Tying into our main machine room also provides access to any of our five recording booths or multiple booths at once, as well as ISDN or any combination thereof,” adds Erazmus.
“Using digital runs for both microphone, ISDN and headphone signals offers the cleanest path, keeps the noise floor low and essentially eliminates radio frequency interference.”
Another Country has a staff of 11; five engineers, four assistants, EP Konn and producer Louise Rider. It is located adjacent to Cutters editorial department, on the 25th floor of the AMA building at 515 N. State.
