I’ve been missing have a Sennheiser 441 available for a number of years now so I went and found myself a pristine 70’s version for sale and nabbed it up. This beauty came with the OG clear locking clip and is an N version, which required the building of a custom cable, but minimal trouble for such a stunner.
Also added in the past couple months were some nice AKG 451’s with the stupendous CK1 capsules. These mics are wonderful for overheads and acoustic guitars, with a very sweet yet forward sound.
I met a very nice man who was unfortunately closing his recording studio down after 40 years of business. On the bright side, we bartered a bit and I loaded up my car with some treasures. Do these new monitors make the console look too small?
After rescuing a beautiful Otari MTR 10 mix down deck almost a whole year ago, I have finally had a chance to get it up to snuff and ready to work. Mixed some songs from my friend Lauren Heneise to it for a test. Sounds lovely with a nice little sheen on the high end. This also means you can do a project 100% analog at the Rec Room now if you so desire. Neat.
My personal project, Veloce is releasing a record soon. If you enjoy down tempo drone layers and the occasional motorik beat, you may like it. Here’s the opening track.
Picked up a few projects. Hopefully, getting these beauties session ready won’t take too much.
Latest addition to the mic closet. We picked up a Peluso 22 251 and immediately put it to use on a load of vocal tracks as well as some acoustic and electric guitar tracks with very pleasing results.
Pretty excited to add these guys to the mic locker. Stereo pair of AEA Ribbons have been sounding great on guitars, drum sets, and vocals. The smooth high end of a classic ribbon mic, with having to crank the gain on the mic pre (and and a ton of noise) is a wonderful thing.
