and System T S500 Consoles from Solid State Logic
Branson, Missouri, August 18, 2022 — Mansion Sound and Solid State Logic have dynamically joined forces to deliver unmatched audio quality and functionality to clients at the finest singular audio facility of its kind in the world. The multi million dollar custom designed Mansion Sound studios launched on August 1, 2022 features SSL flagship Duality Fuse SuperAnalogue and System T S500 digital audio mixing consoles in two of the facility’s acclaimed rooms to support its music and soundtrack production in addition to full film and television audio post production services. The “A” room houses the largest SSL Duality Fuse ever built.
Mansion Sound, part of The Mansion Entertainment Group headquartered in Branson, Missouri, encompasses a strategically defined global brand of creative production entities. In addition to Mansion Sound, the core brand includes Mansion Animation, Mansion Film & Television and Mansion Studios, an unprecedented industry defining film and television production and post production campus now in full development and pre-construction. At the heart of the group is the Mansion Theatre for the Performing Arts, a 3,000-seat multi-purpose venue that is currently celebrating its thirtieth anniversary and is considered the premiere center for the performing arts in the Midwest United States.
Mansion Sound’s new SSL Duality Fuse is the first and only 96-input configuration of the console to be manufactured and installed anywhere in the world, positioning the studio as a unique and powerful destination for audio production. Both SSL-equipped control rooms can access 128 lines from the 75X50 foot theatrical/ film scoring stage or a spacious tracking room and have been designed and outfitted for Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 immersive mixing by Danny Stone, Mansion Sound’s Chief Engineer.
The credo of the organization, which was founded by owner Gene Bicknell and is operated under the guidance of CEO Larry Wilhite, is to bring joy, hope and exceptional family entertainment to the world through the core Mansion brands. The inaugural project recorded and mixed through the SSL Duality Fuse was An Ozark Mountain Symphony: A Musical Celebration, an hour-long special featuring The Springfield Symphony Orchestra and a galaxy of Disney, Broadway, gospel and country music stars. Filmed live in concert at the Mansion Theatre For The Performing Arts, it was recorded and mixed at Mansion Sound by multiple Grammy and Emmy winning producer and engineer David Reitzas and will premiere on PBS nationwide later this year and in 2023.
According to Larry Wilhite, CEO, Mansion Entertainment Group, “It’s overwhelming and humbling to have been able to develop and grow these facilities, encompassing our studios, sound stages, and stage for television and live performances. The team that has been assembled in every area where this company has grown its brand is unprecedented. It’s good to know that no corners have been cut and perfection prevails. It’s more than I ever dreamed of in my lifetime or career. We’re going to use everything to the best of our abilities and hopefully bring a lot of joy and happiness to the world, whether through animation, film, music, live performances or life in general.”

MANSION SOUND WELCOMES EXECUTIVE MIXER/PRODUCER/ENGINEER
AS STUDIO DIRECTOR
Recently recognized as the finest singular audio facility in the world for music and film/television post production, featuring the largest SSL Duality Fuse SuperAnalogue mixing console ever built and the most powerful Genelec Dolby Atmos system in the United States, Mansion Sound has captured the attention of the industry worldwide.
This morning, corporate representatives announced the choice for the Mansion Sound studio director, acclaimed engineer/producer/mixer Joe Carrell.
For more than 20 years, Joe Carrell has been recognized as a true force of talent within the recording industry. With 11 Grammy nominated albums mixed/and or recorded, 33 charted number ones mixed/recorded and Billboard Top Ten’s in multiple categories, Joe defines the heart and soul of excellence.
With a diverse and respected expertise in many music genres including orchestral, pop, rock, country, jazz, gospel, bluegrass, Broadway, film and more, Joe’s desire for “nothing but the best” has reached the heart of the industry including his recent productions for Disney Princess: The Concert and the new Disney single “All is Lost/Into The Unknown”.
Recently, Benjamin Rauhala, Award winning Broadway music director, producer of “Disney Princess - The Concert” spoke about Joe and their recent productions:
“Working with Joe for all of the orchestral and vocal recording sessions for ‘Disney Princess - The Concert’ was an absolute career highlight! He’s endlessly warm and patient, and creates a recording atmosphere where every artist felt safe and supported, while also being game to move as quickly through each session as Broadway-style sessions always dictate. And that’s just working with Joe as an engineer! In all of our recordings, his first mixes have always been beautifully detailed, and taken very little noting to get to the final product. Being able to trust his artistry throughout all of our show preparations has been an invaluable tool. Joe and the team of like-minded artists he cultivates around him are truly the best of the best!
