    Antelope Audio has introduced Satori, a true analog monitoring and summing system. Satori expands upon the design architecture of Eclipse 384, Antelope’s mastering AD/DA and monitoring controller. Carefully designed analog circuits and fast, transparent relay attenuators ensure the audio integrity throughout the whole signal path. The 0.05 dB platinum relays provide accurate volume control and perfect L/R balance, even at the lowest listening levels. “We wanted to design a clean and transparent monitoring controller that would not compromise the quality… View this story

    A self-proclaimed ‘analog-minded person,’ Nick Irving, owner of Studio One Flight Up in Sydney, works with independent singers, songwriters and musicians who are driven to create great records. While the studio is home to several vintage analog outboard gear pieces, Irving wanted a brand-new, reliable analog console to bring together the sound he works to achieve. Deb Sloss of Studio Connections Australia advised him towards a 32-channel API 1608 console, fitted with twenty-four classic API 550A EQs, and eight 560… View this story

    Wide Hive Studios in San Francisco’s Bay Area re-opened its doors earlier this year after a number of recent renovations and updates. A decade ago, veteran producer, engineer, and musician Gregory Howe folded his costly studio in San Francisco for a cozy, less expensive space in nearby Albany, CA. He centered the studio around a 16-channel API 1608, which he later expanded to 32 channels through a 16-channel expander. Now, with his most recent round of upgrades, Howe has added… View this story

    Ivor Drawmer, maker of analog—and now digital—signal processing equipment, drew on his 30-plus years behind the soldering iron to create the Drawmer 1973, a new 3-band FET stereo compressor. It is being distributed in the U.S. by TransAudio Group, available now at a price of $1,825. The Drawmer 1973 includes three independent compressor sections with two variable-frequency 6 dB/octave crossovers to separate them into low, middle, and high frequency compression sections. Each section contains familiar threshold, gain, attack, and release… View this story

    Solid State Logic is proud to announce that mixer, engineer and producer Ethan Mates has entrusted the SSL Matrix to deliver big-room results in his newly relocated purpose-built private studio. Mates has been using SSL equipment since the early 1990s, when he meticulously sliced and diced composite vocals in 4000G+ rooms for the biggest pop divas of our time, under the tutelage of Ric Wake in New York. A few decades and a cross-country trek to Los Angeles later, he’s… View this story

    Analog? Digital? Both? In professional audio, many choices exist, but there’s not enough time to make the wrong ones. We regularly hear claims floating about, often skewed by particular opinions and interests that tend to color underlying simple truths. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the noun “analog” as being something that is analogous (similar or related) to something else. For example, an analog can be a food product that represents another, such as inexpensive whitefish “krab” intended to replicate more expensive… View this story

    Founding members of the multi-platinum band LIVE recently established Think Loud Studios in their hometown of York, Pa. When it came time to install a console in the world-class facility’s expansive Studio A, they opted for a 48-channel Solid State Logic Duality analog console/controller. The extensive experience that the group and their engineers have with classic SSL analog consoles led them directly to Duality. Known for classic albums including Throwing Copper, Secret Samadhi and The Distance to Here, the members… View this story

    The ever Audient ASP4816 in the South Pacific has been installed at The Analogue Café, a self-professed “old fashioned recording studio.” Studio owner Eric Malamud was keen to ensure that The Analogue Café lives up to its name, and his research into analog gear led him straight to Audient. Discovering that console designer David Dearden is Audient’s co-founder piqued his interest. “I already own a vintage Midas XL200, so I’m a Dearden fan by default,” says Malamud. General manager and… View this story
