I wrote a story about Musicol Recording for Pitchfork in February, and in it I mentioned that Columbus Discount Recording’s Adam Smith is the heir apparent to Musicol’s legacy. That will become even more of a reality this summer.
Smith said he’s closing down CDR’s studio in June and moving the best gear from there to Musicol, combining the two studios into one super-studio. Smith will run CDR out of Musicol after the move. The two entities will remain separate, but Smith said that by September, “We ought to have one of the best recording facilities in the midwest in Columbus [and] we ought to be able to offer more egalitarian rates, too.”
Seems like a good, natural move for both CDR and Musicol.
