Rafa Sardina Enjoys Recording Success With Harman JBL LSR Studio Monitors

Recording industry veteran Rafa Sardina recorded and mixed tracks for Lady Gaga's recent album, Born This Way, using Harman JBL LSR28P studio monitors.
Sardina is an eleven-time Grammy-winning producer, mixer and recording engineer, whose credits include projects with Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Shakira, Mariah Carey, Dr. Dre, Beyoncé, Sheryl Crow and Macy Gray.
Sardina worked with producer Fernando Garibay on Born This Way at The Mix Room in Burbank, California. According to Sardina, JBL LSR studio monitors have become an integral tool in his setup. Sardina said: "I use the LSR monitors while recording the tracks and mixing. It has been a very fruitful association for me, since the JBL LSR's really helped me better my game in recording and especially the mixing process."
In turn, the LSR studio monitors have left an impression on the artists Sardina works with. Sardina said: "The artists often comment positively on the LSR monitors. Not only that, but they often ask me to recommend how to achieve the same listening experience."
The most important benefit of the LSR monitors, Sardina said, is their ability to provide accuracy in any environment. He said: "It's not only about how good the track sounds in the studio, but more importantly about how it translates outside the studio environment. That's the aspect that makes these speakers so enjoyable."
In addition, Sardina uses JBL LSR12P subwoofers. He said: "I don't think there's a better subwoofer out there in the market. I can say that after testing them out over the years!"
Sardina sees technology as an integral component of the art of music production itself - and finds artistic value in using the LSE monitors. Sardina said: "The LSR monitors helped me get reassurance about my creative decisions. You work quite differently when you know exactly how your recordings are going to reflect in other listening environments and what the sonic boundaries and limitations are."
