    Source Distribution recently sold the API BOX to popular mixer/engineer Scott Rosser. Rosser, who has remixed many of the biggest pop names in the industry including Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Mariah Carey. Currently working from his home, Rosser knew he needed the right gear before finding a new space outside of him home studio. A solution arrived in April when Rosser ordered the BOX after just one demo session with Andy Bensley of Source Distribution. “Source kindly set up a… View this story

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   If you’re looking for a prime example of what Toffler wrote about in Future Shock, look no further than analog tape. In little more than a decade, the two-inch multitrack tape machine has gone from studio staple to relic rarity. And while many audio veterans wax nostalgic for that warm analog sound, few will admit to missing the work that went with it. These days, owning an analog tape machine is somewhat akin to driving… View this story

    Lightning Boy Audio (LBA) has introduced the Flux Bender, a new handcrafted passive, stereo, vacuum tube powered equalizer. With an EQ filter similar to the Pultec EQP-1A, the Flux Bender offers the familiar low and high band boost/cut controls with a variable bandwidth control on the high boost. However, the Flux Bender provides independent frequency controls over the boost/cut controls for the lows and highs.  The left and right channels are controlled simultaneously by a single set of controls, with… View this story

    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

    With 17,000 students, the University of Örebro is one of the fastest growing universities in Sweden.  Its school of music, theatre and art provides the growing student body with an array of course subjects, including recording music technology. In its quest to prepare students for moving on to a modern recording studio, the university has commissioned an API 1608 console. Situated in the heart of Sweden, the university’s proximity to Stockholm, Gothenburg and Oslo offer students a wide range of… 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
