    By his own estimate, veteran studio engineer Michael James mixes an average of 250 to 300 songs a year in his Alternator Records facility (Simi Valley, CA), with a discography that includes records by New Radicals, Hole, L7, Robben Ford, and Kalimba. His philosophy in mixing a track is purposefully minimalist. “I’m a firm proponent of doing whatever needs to be done—or doing nothing if a track doesn’t need anything,” he explains. The racks in his mix room are loaded… View this story

    Dharma Studios owner Paolo Tubia is a fan of the hybrid set up. “I like analog outboard—a tasty compressor and some boutique preamps—to be a part of the mix. So I needed a centerpiece to manage the various control room components effectively and creatively,” he explains, describing the studio he has aspired to—and, with the arrival of his new Audient ASP4816 small-format console last month—ultimately brought to life. “The Audient definitely has the ‘wow’ factor,” Tubia says. “A real analog… View this story

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
