    Another API BOX console has crossed continents, this time into the north of Spain. Jonan Ordorika is the first to install a BOX into the Iberian peninsula. Ordorika installed the console in his new studio MAMIA, located in Azkarate, Navarra. Says Ordorika: “When I was faced with the challenge to decide about a new desk, the BOX was, no doubt, the best option.” Ordorika already had API in his arsenal before the BOX, citing ten 225L compressors and 16 550L… View this post

    Guitarist Billy Morrison has a busy schedule. Whether he’s gearing up for a Las Vegas residency with Billy Idol, recording and releasing solo albums with collaborators like Ozzy Osbourne, or playing top LA venues with Dave Navarro in their band Royal Machines, His go-to signal chain is a ‘modern vintage’ combination of the BAE Audio 1073 preamplifier and 10DC compressor, both of which stand at the ready to capture his sounds with the analog warmth of old-world vintage consoles.

Sold by local Audient dealer Sonotechnique, the 24 channel desk was installed in late summer, and has a number of features that Leduc appreciates. “All the aux sends are switchable pre/post and input/monitor; there are two insertion points per channel and I… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   First of all, I would like to make it clear that I have only recently decided to forgive digital for how it sounds. Yes, I agree that digital is easier, more convenient, and more stable in terms of a storage medium, and you can do very cool things that would be difficult or even impossible using analog. Unfortunately, I’ve always felt that analog technology better captures midrange nuances that are crucial to any… View this post

    mixing consoles
    Craig Leerman 12/10/15 12:41 PM,
    At the heart of a sound reinforcement system is the mixing console, handling the routing, gain adjustments, balancing between inputs, EQ, and possibly some processing of the audio as well. When it’s a large analog console, invariably at least one person walks up to us at a gig to ask, “Do you know what all those knobs do?” Recently while freelancing at a gig on an unfamiliar digital board, I had to ask another audio tech for help in finding… View this post
