Peluso 22 251

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.

AEA N22’s

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.

The future is digital, which comes from the past

I picked up this dinosaur last month to help finish up a pretty big archival project from a film produced in the early 90’s. Tracking down a functioning machine to archive a bunch of DA88 tapes was a bit of a bear, so I thought I’d hold onto this thing for a bit in case anyone needs to rescue some of their old grunge bands lost recordings, your answer to the film Clerks or whatever else you might be needing. If it doesn’t get used soon, it’ll be off to eBay, so let me know if you need doing sooner rather then later. 

Rescue Day

I had my annual large console lift day today. This is an Amek Big my buddy picked up in Milwaukee and is heading to southern Illinois. At around 400 pounds, it was by far the lightest studio console i have moved in a bit, and with any luck the last.

Being in Wisconsin, a stop for New Glarus was in order.
