Horacio Malvicino’s NYC-based Malvicino Designs Group (MDG) has completed the new Malonic Records studio. Located in the major business and industrial city of Monterrey, Mx, Malonic is a Dolby Atmos integrated studio that specializes in recording, mixing and mastering. The studio has 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos mixing capabilities as well as large studio monitors 2.1 by Ocean Way Audio.
The Malonic Design Group & Malonic Records Studio
will be at NAMM 2023 Booth 16314
Malonic Records studio control room.
The Malvicino Design Group specializes in recording studio architecture, custom acoustics, and manufacturing of audio products. They have wired, integrated and commissioned over 500 studios over the years. Horacio Malvicino, who holds a degree in Electrical Engineering, decided to use the unique Sommer MC-Mistral analog/digital combo cable throughout for Malonic Records.
Malonic’s spacious live room accommodates the recording of bands and orchestral groups. Variable acoustics as well as wall and ceiling diffusion are the hallmark of the studio/live room area. All rooms were built with “a room within a room” architecture. A private lounge and kitchen area provide a relaxing communal area. Nicolas Mateo is the founder and owner of the new studio alongside Pablo Garcia as chief engineer.
Architectural design and acoustics were by the Malvicino Design Group under the direction of Horacio Malvicino and Fabiola Mena. System Integration was by Federico Petrone and installation by Diego Mejia for MDG. Equipment was supplied by Westlake Pro under the supervision of Stephen Banister.

Sommer Cable’s SC-Mistral assures accurate and precise capacitance, thus high transmission quality is assured over long distances. The wire pairs of Sommer’s Mistral cable have a pre-twisted drain wire and another shielding made from AL/PT compound foil. For added protection against corrosion and oxidation, both the conductors and the drain wire are tinned. The returns on the cable splices are easily recognizable by the color-coding on the conductor pairs.
“This studio is unique and simply astounding, with great attention to detail and especially durability,” commented Horacio Malvicino. “And it’s clear that Sommer Cable was a great choice for this new studio.”
