    In the early days of our industry, equipment was made to serve the user’s needs. Many of the original studio owners came from a radio background. They built their own equipment, from consoles to compressors to equalizers, etc. They didn’t have cost-effective manufacturing in mind when they created this equipment. They built it in order to make superior-sounding recordings. At some point, other people in the audio community asked these pioneers to build equipment for their studios. The world of… View this story

For their latest album, Choose Your Weapon, the members of Hiatus Kaiyote relied heavily on their home studio and the… View this story

    Artistic, psychedelic rock foursome, Bo Ningen has recently added an Audient iD22 USB audio interface to their recording setup. Lead singer, Taigen Kawabe’s initial reaction to the new arrival was surprise at “the clarity and honest sounds from the iD22,” later adding, “I would say the mic preamp surprised me the most. It’s super-clear and can capture such a wide range of frequency.” A wide frequency range is certainly what these musical racketeers need, with Taigen confirming that the band… View this story

He turned to BAE Audio preamplifiers to nearly double his available inputs, matching the sound of Metallica’s existing vintage gear with the added reliability of BAE’s modern construction and… View this story
