    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

    A central feature of Focusrite’s RedNet audio-over-IP interface system is the remote-controlled microphone preamplifiers included in the RedNet 4 and MP8R models. New firmware releases from Yamaha and Focusrite now make it possible for RedNet mic preamplifiers to be remote-controlled from Yamaha CL and QL mixing consoles, allowing significant additional interoperability between the two systems. Yamaha’s CL/QL recent version 3.1 firmware update adds specific support for RedNet 4 and RedNet MP8R preamps. A firmware update to the RedNet units, also… View this story

    SongCraft Presents partners Ben Arthur, Mike Crehore, Al Houghton, Matthew Hendershot, and Rob Reinhart work with an established singer-songwriter to compose and record a song in the span of just three short hours. That time constraint often inspires the artist in collaboration with Ben Arthur – an accomplished singer-songwriter in his own right – to create something fresh and unencumbered. Matthew Hendershot captures the entire process, using Metric Halo ULN-8 and ULN-2 interfaces, which is later edited to highlight the… View this story

    Front of house/studio mix engineer Paul David Hager (Miley Cyrus, Goo Goo Dolls, Jonas Brothers) uses the DiGiGrid IOS and Waves SoundGrid technology to simplify and enhance his workflow.  “Using the DiGiGrid IOS’s low-latency monitoring with plugins is a great benefit to my workflow when tracking vocals for Miley Cyrus,” says Hager. “Having the ability to use StudioRack as Native or SoundGrid with DiGiGrid IOS is more than useful.” “DiGiGrid IOS’s preamps and I/Os sound amazing. Since I do both… View this story

    An Audient ASP880 and iD22, together with a MacPro, two screens and Dynaudio monitors is all that makes up the studio for bass player Phil Mulford, who’s found himself producing an album with some of his rather famous and talented friends. His 30-year career encompassing theatre, recording, touring and television - including six series of X-Factor and Britain’s Got Talent - allows Mulford to draw from a deep well of professional experience. The current album project comprises Jacqui Hicks on… View this story

    Sounding Sweet studios has chosen to upgrade to the Audient ASP880 8-channel mic pre “…because they sound so clean.” Post production sound engineer and studio co-owner, Ed Walker can’t stress this enough. “It’s difficult to explain, the Audient doesn’t sound clinical. It’s a high-end mic pre which sounds really musical somehow, whilst being incredibly accurate. That’s what I get when I use Audient.” Sounding Sweet has recently been shortlisted for a Develop Award in the category of ‘Creative Outsourcer –… View this story
