    Dharma Studios owner Paolo Tubia is a fan of the hybrid set up. “I like analog outboard—a tasty compressor and some boutique preamps—to be a part of the mix. So I needed a centerpiece to manage the various control room components effectively and creatively,” he explains, describing the studio he has aspired to—and, with the arrival of his new Audient ASP4816 small-format console last month—ultimately brought to life. “The Audient definitely has the ‘wow’ factor,” Tubia says. “A real analog… View this post

    seeburg jukebox history
    Tom Lubin 10/03/14 03:01 PM,
    Somewhere in its early years, the coin operated record player acquired the name “jukebox.” There are several theories about the origin. The most accepted is that the word “juke” is a corruption of the word “jook,” an African American slang term for dancing. The source of the music for this dancing would have been called a “jookbox.” A second version is that “jook” meant “sex” which may have made sense since brothels were some of the first establishments to install… View this post

    A self-proclaimed ‘analog-minded person,’ Nick Irving, owner of Studio One Flight Up in Sydney, works with independent singers, songwriters and musicians who are driven to create great records. While the studio is home to several vintage analog outboard gear pieces, Irving wanted a brand-new, reliable analog console to bring together the sound he works to achieve. Deb Sloss of Studio Connections Australia advised him towards a 32-channel API 1608 console, fitted with twenty-four classic API 550A EQs, and eight 560… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Now that I’m traveling to even more churches than ever, I’ve seen some very creative console layouts. And pretty much everyone looks at me funny when I ask them for an input sheet. I used input sheets every weekend for over eight years—even though most weeks we could have gotten away without one. But I’m a big fan of consistency, and once I settle on a good way of doing things I like… View this post

    Wide Hive Studios in San Francisco’s Bay Area re-opened its doors earlier this year after a number of recent renovations and updates. A decade ago, veteran producer, engineer, and musician Gregory Howe folded his costly studio in San Francisco for a cozy, less expensive space in nearby Albany, CA. He centered the studio around a 16-channel API 1608, which he later expanded to 32 channels through a 16-channel expander. Now, with his most recent round of upgrades, Howe has added… View this post

    With sound quality a top priority, mix and mastering engineer Gonzalo González E. wanted to expand his studio offerings, while maintaining the high quality of recording for which his clients are accustomed. With the needs of his growing studio in mind, González was advised by 57 Pro Audio, API’s Chilean distributor, to add a standard 1608 console. The 1608 is a perfect match for the size of CHT Estudios, as well as both the independent and bigger international label clients… View this post

    New Audient ASP8024 console-owner Michael Chiklis has spent the last few weeks getting acquainted with his 24-channel Audient desk before hot-footing off to New Orleans to start shooting the television series, “American Horror Story: Freak Show”. “I recorded the first tracks through the ASP8024,” enthuses Chiklis, who is better known for his acting career than for his high spec, Los Angeles home studio. “I recorded a cover of a Police song just to test the system and it really went… View this post

    Ivor Drawmer, maker of analog—and now digital—signal processing equipment, drew on his 30-plus years behind the soldering iron to create the Drawmer 1973, a new 3-band FET stereo compressor. It is being distributed in the U.S. by TransAudio Group, available now at a price of $1,825. The Drawmer 1973 includes three independent compressor sections with two variable-frequency 6 dB/octave crossovers to separate them into low, middle, and high frequency compression sections. Each section contains familiar threshold, gain, attack, and release… View this post
