    At this year’s 139thAES Convention in New York, Crane Song is introducing two new products which feature the company’s new Quantum DA fifth generation of D to A converter technology, the Avocet IIA discrete class A monitor controller and the Solaris digital to analog converter. The Quantum DAC uses a 32 bit converter and asynchronous sample rate conversion for jitter reduction with up sampling to 211 KHz.

    Back in 1996, I predicted that the good old analog snake would be gone, soon to be replaced by digital counterparts. But something strange happened…the world did not change. As both a manufacturer of snakes and a distributor to the Canadian market, we sell more analog snakes today than ever before. With that in mind, let’s have a look at analog snakes and their application. There are basically two formats: traditional floor boxes or rack-mount snakes. The floor box is… View this story

    Studio Humbug owners Jim and Rob Homes have taken delivery of a 24-channel Audient ASP8024 analog mixing console, complementing their growing collection of vintage mic pres. “The pres we have are from 1961 and VERY colored, this is a wonderful characteristic - but not on everything,” says Jim. “The ASP8024 has allowed us to integrate the sound of the pres whilst using the headroom, EQ and reliability of the Audient. The two worlds marry together perfectly.” Audient wasn’t an uninformed… View this story

    Many people know Kenny Larkin as an artist—but few know that he is also a producer and studio owner, and his studio just got some familiar new gear. After his older digital mixer broke down, Larkin knew it was time to return to analog, and knew API would be just the ticket. “I had to look for something new, and I had that analog itch again. I wanted more warmth in my recordings without having to keep going through outboard… View this story

    Mix engineer Wez Clarke has mixed top-sellers for Naughty Boy, Beyoncé, Jess Glynne, Rudimental, Little Mix, Duke Dumont, Tinie Tempah, Ella Eyre - and this year, along with Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne, collected a Grammy for Best Dance Recording of 2015 (Rather Be). Clarke recently refurbished his London studio, with acoustic design by Munro Acoustics, ME Geithain monitoring, and a Solid State Logic AWS 948 console with δelta-Control. After eight years, working in an increasingly cluttered space, Clarke made… View this story

    Mark Ziemann “got tired of mixing with the mouse”. As a result, he upgraded to an API BOX console this June. Ziemann made the switch from digital mixers and calls the console a “complete API system” for his home studio, “now I know I needed analog faders.” Ziemann works in Garbenteich, Germany, where he has been involved in pro audio for just over a decade. “As a guitarist, I was never quite happy with the productions of my music, so… View this story

    Ask Aaron Fry how the API 1608 changed his studio and he will tell you it’s the difference between “recording and mixing a great record versus a good record.” Fry runs a uniquely non-profit studio called Electric Sun in Sacramento, CA; he purchased the 1608 from Sonic Circus in May, and he says it quickly became the “perfect centerpiece to the studio.” Fry uses a variety of API racks as well, including the 3124+, which he says “make great companion… View this story

    When Brad Englander was deciding how to expand his gear list to include a console, he was certain about one thing: “all roads led back to API.” At the time, he already had four 512cs in an API lunchbox, but wanted even more of the “same clean and punchy sound,” so he turned to the 1608, along with a 2500, for the solution. Englander owns “Bassmental”, a studio he runs from his home in Great Falls, Virginia. The studio works… View this story

    Increasing numbers of students at the audio engineering branch of Oxygen College have resulted in the commission of a brand new, larger studio where a 36 channel Audient ASP8024 mixing console with Dual Layer Control (DLC) and patchbay now takes center stage. Newly opened in May, this latest addition to the Geelong West music facility is in the care of head of audio Tom Isaac, who explains, “It is used predominantly by our Advanced Diploma of Sound Production students.” He… View this story
