The new unit features a modernized and discrete signal path utilizing custom-engineered MIDAS input and output transformers with an easy to operate user interface.

    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 post

    As with the ever-ongoing debates about “tubes versus transistors,” “analog versus digital” and “Mac versus PC,” there’s not likely to be agreement any time soon about “objective versus subjective” when it comes to sound quality. Extremists in the “Objectivist” camp argue that, “if it can’t be measured, it doesn’t exist” while on the other hand, the “Subjectivist” side firmly backs the idea that “human beings can hear things that can’t be measured.” How often has it been suggested, “use your… View this post

    Just when we thought we’d seen the largest console to leave the Audient factory, the Concert Hall in Norway’s capital went and ordered an even bigger one. Delivered in September, the 48 channel ASP8024-HE Heritage Edition comes with all the trimmings, including patchbay, Dual Layer Control (DLC) and producers’ desk. With nine bays, it’s officially the largest Heritage Edition ever made. Luckily, Oslo’s Concert Hall is a big place. “We were looking for an analog console that doesn’t lie,” says… View this post

    Equalizers, by their nature and name, are supposed to redress imbalances in a sound system. Unfortunately, equalizers, whether graphic, parametric, or shelving in nature, are only as good as the person using them. Knowing where to turn the knob or push the fader is usually a dark science, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The first step in proper EQ technique is to realize the knobs go to the left better than they go to… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary   With the plethora of new (and affordable) digital mixers on the market, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with features, options and pricing. So how do you determine the right board for your situation? I use the same criteria as purchasing an analog console with just a few additional twists. When purchasing an analog console, there are five primary aspects that I suggest looking at. (Well, six if you include price.) 1) Quality.… View this post
