    Haybale Studio spends four days every summer capturing Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Festival - with a little help from a Solid State Logic AWS 948 SuperAnalogue console. Music and podcast producer Lij Shaw is normally found in residence as the owner of The Toy Box Studio in East Nashville, TN. However, every summer he packs his essentials into a trailer and heads 60 miles South of Nashville to a 700-acre farm, along with 85,000 other people. There, with the help of a… View this post

    As guitarist Jeff Baxter once said to me during the “heat” of a Rod Stewart recording session: “We can do anything—the impossible just takes a little longer.” Along with talented musicians like Jeff, engineers, producers, and live mixers often are called upon to solve problems that are at first glance, flat impossible. To a technically challenged client, all the flashy and complicated gear, computers and the alacrity at which a pro uses them to produce nearly instant, seemingly magical results… View this post

    Back in 1996, I predicted that the good old analog snake would be gone, soon to be replaced by digital counterparts. But something strange happened…the world did not change. As both a manufacturer of snakes and a distributor to the Canadian market, we sell more analog snakes today than ever before. With that in mind, let’s have a look at analog snakes and their application. There are basically two formats: traditional floor boxes or rack-mount snakes. The floor box is… View this post

    Studio Humbug owners Jim and Rob Homes have taken delivery of a 24-channel Audient ASP8024 analog mixing console, complementing their growing collection of vintage mic pres. “The pres we have are from 1961 and VERY colored, this is a wonderful characteristic - but not on everything,” says Jim. “The ASP8024 has allowed us to integrate the sound of the pres whilst using the headroom, EQ and reliability of the Audient. The two worlds marry together perfectly.” Audient wasn’t an uninformed… View this post

    Many people know Kenny Larkin as an artist—but few know that he is also a producer and studio owner, and his studio just got some familiar new gear. After his older digital mixer broke down, Larkin knew it was time to return to analog, and knew API would be just the ticket. “I had to look for something new, and I had that analog itch again. I wanted more warmth in my recordings without having to keep going through outboard… View this post

    ASP800, the new, eight-channel mic pre & ADC from Audient is now shipping worldwide and is available at all Audient dealers. Following the release of the bus-powered audio interface iD14, the ASP800 offers eight Audient console mic pres, Burr-Brown A-D converters, two discrete JFET instrument inputs and two brand new ‘Retro Channels’ featuring tone controls HMX and IRON. HMX is a custom harmonic distortion designed to emulate the sweet, thick tones often associated with 1960s tube designs, whilst Audient’s brand… View this post

    Many of us make our livings providing concert-goers with the best live music experience possible. We deploy high-fidelity loudspeaker systems and microphones with the latest in digital effects and studio-quality processing in an effort to make the live show sound “just like the record.” Only better, of course, because the excitement, visual elements, crowd response and performance spontaneity are impossible to reproduce in someone’s living room. Or is it? Let’s step back in time and examine our progress in the… View this post

    Mark Ziemann “got tired of mixing with the mouse”. As a result, he upgraded to an API BOX console this June. Ziemann made the switch from digital mixers and calls the console a “complete API system” for his home studio, “now I know I needed analog faders.” Ziemann works in Garbenteich, Germany, where he has been involved in pro audio for just over a decade. “As a guitarist, I was never quite happy with the productions of my music, so… View this post
