    The Tanzanian Heritage Project (THP) is using Prism Sound‘s Lyra Audio Interface in a unique bid to rescue and digitize the country’s tape-based music archive, thus preserving a precious musical heritage for future generations. Rebecca Corey, co-founder and executive director of the Tanzania heritage Project hatched the idea for the digitization project in 2010, with her Tanzanian friend and THP co-founder Benson Rukantabula, while Corey was at home in the US recovering from a motorcycle accident in Dar es Salaam.… View this post

    Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro) recently helped a studio source the centerpiece for the facility – a legacy 24-fader Neve Genesys console that previously resided at Studio E at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. When Matt Tamisin and his brother Abraham saw the opportunity to acquire a console that had been part of one of the historic studio, they knew they had to have it for their Japanski Recording Studio in Athens, Georgia. “I knew that if I didn’t get… View this post

    Steven Ellison, a.k.a. the musician, producer, and rapper Flying Lotus, has installed a Solid State Logic XL-Desk, in his personal studio. Ellison, a great-nephew of the jazz and avant-garde musician Alice Coltrane, has long pushed musical boundaries and defied categorization. His fifth and most recent release, You’re Dead!, includes contributions by Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg. It was named one of Rolling Stone’s top albums of 2014.  Ellison selected the analog XL-Desk for its capabilities, which simply didn’t… View this post

    When Montréal’s Studio 270 brought home a 48-channel automated API Legacy Plus console, co-owners Francois Hamel and Robert Langois agree it was much more than a smart business move. “I think the API Legacy saved us,” Hamel says. The studio has been in business since 1987, but before they added the Legacy to 270’s collection of outboard gear and microphones, the owners began to notice a slow decline in business. Hamel believes that the tendency for artists to work at… View this post

    Dutch recording artist and member of the band “The Common Linnets” Ilse Delange, and her producer JB Meijers, spoke with API recently about their console and the effect it’s had on their work. Meijers commented: “The 1608 is ruling the Dutch charts. Our room is designed so that if we have a great idea, we can immediately track it. The API makes it possible to skip the laptop/bedroom phase.” Delange first saw a 1608 in Nashville’s Blackbird Studio, and sold… View this post

    Two new Audient ASP4816s have been purchased by SAE Melbourne as part of an expansion at the Antipodean education facility. “It’s all coming together – we have finally finished the installation.” says studio technician Brad Toan, relieved to be coming to the end of the current phase of the redevelopment, and describing the arrival of the compact Audient desks as “…a new, more reliable solution for teaching our Trimester 1 students. “The Audient desks give commencing students an introduction to… View this post

    Oakland, California’s 25th Street Recording opened their doors with an all-discrete, fully-analog, 64-channel API Vision Console six years ago. Today, the console is still keeping 25th Street booked and busy. Among those who have called the studio home are all-star producer Joe Chiccarelli, when he is in town, ‘80s icon Sheila E., Norteño mega-band Los Tigres Del Norte, and guitar hero Joe Satriani. Twenty-fifth Street draws in high-profile clients with the help of the well-earned reputation and versatile capabilities of… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time, there was no recorded music.  To hear music you needed to go to a live performance. Eventually sheet music was printed and available to buy. If you liked the song, you bought the sheet music … if you were lucky enough to have an instrument and could play you could actually hear the song. The piano (or other musical instrument) was an important part of home entertainment. In the… View this post

The new 1073MPL delivers the same class A sound that BAE preamplifiers are known for, all in a compact and cost effective 500 series package. For equipment manufacturers,… View this post

    You patch in a piece of audio equipment, and there it is: HUM! This annoying sound is a common occurrence in sound systems. Hum is an unwanted 60 Hz tone—50 Hz in Europe—maybe with harmonics. If the harmonics are especially strong, the hum becomes an edgy buzz. Your sound system also might be plagued by RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). It’s heard as buzzing, clicks, radio programs, or “hash” in the audio signal. RFI is caused by CB transmitters, computers, lightning,… View this post
