    One day on a freelance gig I walked into the room to discover that the A/V company provided me with an older analog console with two racks of outboard gear. While setting up front of house and patching in all of the effects and processing, I found myself wishing for a digital console. The very next freelance gig I was presented with a brand-new digital console and no extra gear at front of house. As I waded through menus trying… View this post

    Located in the southern part of the Netherlands, Sandlane Recording Facilities was established in 2009 by Maarten de Peijper as a recording studio designed to feel “like a home away from home” with two control rooms, two live rooms, and a living space.  Equipment-wise, Sandlane is outfitted with an array of equipment from Tube-Tech, Retro, UREI, Drawmer, API, Chandler, Maselec, Empirical Labs, and vintage Neve modules – but the studio’s heavy lifting is now handled by a 32-channel Rupert Neve… View this post

    Originally a low-key haven for songwriters and producers, Parkhaus Studio has been a creative force in Köln, Germany for 10 years, becoming more commercial in recent times with acoustic and technology upgrades. Albert Gabriel, recording and mix engineer/chief tech at Parkhaus, moved in and extended the range of services on offer, bringing a Solid State Logic AWS 948 to the facility as part of his own move to a more analog outlook. He sees this as major step forward: “I… View this post

    EDITOR’S NOTE: This fine article was featured in the March 2004 issue of Live Sound International. We reprint it here in celebration of our 25th anniversary. How many sound systems are in use?

    GRAMMY-nominated producer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Jake Sinclair recently produced new records for Sia, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy, while simultaneously crafting his side project, Alohaha. Sinclair’s list of credits includes such artists as Taylor Swift, P!nk, Train, and 5 Seconds of Summer. He runs his studio off a laptop in a room filled with instruments, a few preamps, and his prized Manley ELOP+ stereo electro-optical tube compressor/limiter and not much else. The ELOP+ is a completely re-engineered version of Manley’s coveted early 1990s-vintage… View this post
