    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   If you’re looking for a prime example of what Toffler wrote about in Future Shock, look no further than analog tape. In little more than a decade, the two-inch multitrack tape machine has gone from studio staple to relic rarity. And while many audio veterans wax nostalgic for that warm analog sound, few will admit to missing the work that went with it. These days, owning an analog tape machine is somewhat akin to driving… View this post

    When producer Greg Fidelman hunkered down to begin work on Metallica’s latest record, he knew that the (30) channels of vintage preamps the band had already in the studio would not be enough to simultaneously facilitate the multi-mic drum sound and detailed guitar micing setups he was envisioning for the sessions. He turned to BAE Audio preamplifiers to nearly double his available inputs, matching the sound of Metallica’s existing vintage gear with the added reliability of BAE’s modern construction and… View this post

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared in 1997, but the principles are still valid today and worthy of repeating. Like everything else in the world, the audio industry has been radically and irrevocably changed by the digital revolution. No one has been spared. Arguments will ensue forever about whether the true nature of the real world is analog or digital; whether the fundamental essence, or dharma, of life is continuous (analog) or… View this post

    On the last leg of Ellie Goulding’s recent tour of Europe, next coming to North America, the sound team upgraded the keyboard and playback rigs with technology from Ferrofish and RME, which are both distributed by Synthax. Specifically, Will Sanderson, the tour’s MIDI, playback and keyboards technician, decided to deploy the new Ferrofish A32 AD/DA converter for the show’s keyboard and playback rig and the RME MADIface XT 394-Channel, 192 kHz USB 3.0 audio interface. “The aim was to design… View this post

    The Anexe Studio, a new ground-up commercial facility in Exeter, UK, has invested in a Solid State Logic (SSL) AWS 948 console. Steve and Lindsey Trougton’s long-held ambition to own and operate their own commercial recording studio has finally been realized with The Anexe. Returning from a spell in New York, where the pair originally went in 2011 to study sound recording after a dramatic change in careers, they saw opportunity in the region’s growing cultural credentials. “It’s an up-and-coming… View this post

    A live concert or event often serves a wider audience than those seated in the arena. In addition to the audio in the house and video at the side of the stage, it might also be simulcast to a separate location, streamed on the web, recorded for archival or other purposes, and/or broadcast via radio or television.  To accomplish this task, audio signals from microphones and instruments must be split beyond the traditional front of house and monitor positions and… View this post

    consoles
    Craig Leerman 07/28/16 11:22 AM,
    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
