      It’s all about inputs and outputs (I/O). How do I get an audio signal from one to the other? The ongoing evolution of professional audio has produced a number of viable digital interfaces to complement legacy analog I/O practices. The choices may seem confusing at first, but when you break them down the strengths and weakness of each become apparent. In this overview, I will start with analog since it is familiar to most readers and serves as a… View this post

    Located in Jiutepec, just south of Mexico City, the SOGA (“Sounds of Gaia”) complex was opened by Angel Sananda in 2012, with SOGA Recordings beginning operations in August 2015. The complex itself includes a 175-person auditorium, two project studios, a coffee shop, a rooftop garden, accommodations for 20 people, and a newly-installed 32-channel Rupert Neve Designs “Shelford Edition” 5088 console. According to Sananda, “The core intention behind SOGA was to create a working space that could combine music production and… View this post

    Earlier this year at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, I saw an abundance of new products from every corner of our industry. There were a few that captured my attention and begged for me to rip the credit card out, slash my way through the crowd and claim some new treasures. Yeah, I still get a little emotional over new gear. When I met Drago from Schertler, we talked about the new products they were introducing. The guitar amp collection… View this post

    United has been a long-term user of Merging Technologies’ Pyramix audio workstation and has recorded a multitude of live and sports events in the Netherlands. As a TV post-production facility, the preservation of audio quality has always been a high priority. The choice of console was obviously a critical matter for the United team. AMS Neve offered the perfect hybrid scenario. The Neve Genesys Black incorporates analog circuitry with control of the DAW. As a direct result of this sale,… View this post

    When Patrick Carney, drummer for the popular rock band The Black Keys, was looking to enhance his sound, he was drawn to Unity Audio’s Lisson Grove AR-1 tube compressors upon hearing them in his friend Gus Seyffert’s studio. Carney purchased two compressors to use across his mix-bus and has been thrilled with his sound ever since. “I first heard the Lisson Grove AR-1 at Gus’ studio and I was immediately impressed with the sound of the unit on a variety… View this post

    As we bask in the all-enveloping glory of the digital age, it’s come to my attention that some intrepid live sound engineers are very occasionally coming across analog equipment as they travel to some of the dustier corners of the globe. While many of us are old enough to remember these beasts, not everyone has had the opportunity to operate these relics so I thought it might be a good idea to write a guide to the “ancient art” of… View this post

    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   Most people who’ve looked at digital audio before know about the Nyquist theorem. If you sample an analog signal at a rate of at least twice its highest frequency component, you can convert it back to analog, passing through a low-pass filter, and get back the same thing you put in. Exactly. Perfectly. The Real World In the real world, though, many people argue that analog “sounds better.” How can this be,… View this post

    Klark Teknik announces the shipping of its 1176-KT FET-style compressor, making homage to the classic 1176LN model. 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. The compressor offers three ratios: 4:1 for moderate compression; 8:1 for severe compression: 12:1 for mild limiting; and 20:1 for hard limiting. Additionally, ‘All-button’ mode is included for aggressive vocals and especially effective when applied to drums, bass, guitar… View this post

    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

    BAE Audio announces that it has partnered with Los Angeles club The Viper Room to enhance the club’s signal chain with analog outboard gear. BAE Audio’s Colin Liebich assembled a package of gear to provide a recording-studio-quality input section for The Viper Room’s mixing board. BAE has an established relationship with The Viper Room and owner Darin Feinstein, which has been extended throughout the year with the popularity of its Monday Night Sunset Jams. “BAE Audio gear is well known… View this post
