mpt studio diary #5
Dave Darlington 🎤👂

When it came to mastering the album, a dear friend of Max' gave him the great advice "Check out who mastered your favorite jazz albums!" So we did, and we found a delightfully smiling man, called Dave.

Dave is a real master of his craft.
The GRAMMY-winning recording, mixing and mastering engineer worked with some of our favorite artists, such as Ambrose Akinmusire, Sting, Esperanza Spalding, or the Austrian drummer Peter Kronreif. (the list of people he worked with is long, and at one point it says "Wayne Shorter"...)

We reached out to him, and he was happy to work with us on the album.
4 days after we sent the files to Bass Hit Studios, they already came back and what we heard made us so happy.
We hope all of you check out our album "II", and hear Dave's incredible work.
Hope it will make you happy as is made us happy!
Thanks Dave 🖤🖤🖤

Mr Bongo

Back in the day....MAW!

During the compilation of our 30 year memories Dave Bongo unearthed a dusty VHS tape and discovered something very special… unseen footage of the Masters At Work at their NYC studio in the 90s!

In 1996 we had the privilege of commissioning remixes for Amtosfear’s anthemic ‘Dancin’ In Outer Space’. We called upon the legendary MAW and Dave was lucky enough to drop in on some of the sessions at Dungeon Tape (Brooklyn), and the Battery Studios NYC.

He captured some of the studio vibes during the making of what would become a classic in its own right.

"I gotta tell you, especially for rock, those drums just sat up straight in the chair; it’s unbelievable. They have this great feature that once they’re aligned then you can stagger, like you can take your room mics and move them one series of waves back, which gives you that kind of pre-delay thing which is awesome. So I’m completely addicted to that, like before I even listen to the drums I put it on."

- Legendary engineer Dave Darlington on Auto-Align

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who contributed their sonic creativity to create distinct and user-friendly presets for our new plugin, Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain.

Presets can be a perfect way to not just find a sound easily but to also learn more about the capabilities of the plugin too. They can also give you an insight into the sound of the person who made them too. So we urge you to experiment and explore the sounds created by everyone listed below for Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain. We will be adding even more presets for the next update too!

Congratulations to my friends who came through Bass Hit on their way to the Grammys!

Category 44. Best Tropical Latin Album-Doug Beavers-"The Art of the Arrangement"
Master trombonist Doug Beavers assembled a cast of outstanding arrangers, players, soloists and vocalists for this set. Mixed and mastered at Bass Hit. Hey Doug, more congas?

Category 62. Best Instrumental Composition-The Le Boeuf Brothers and Jack Quartet-"Alkaline" from the album "Imaginist"
This is one of Pascal Le Boeuf's contributions to the album created with his brother Remy Le Boeuf, mixed and mastered at Bass Hit. It really is an incredible composition!

Category 71. Best Remix Recording-Loleatta Holloway-"Can't Let You Go" Louie Vega Remix.
This nomination is for Louie Vega and his remix which is really slammin'!
The original was done at Bass Hit produced by Yvonne Turner with amazing tracks by Alan Friedman. Yvonne, aren't you glad we were able to get that vocal off the 2" tape before it disintegrated? Loleatta never sounded better!

Good luck you all!

I know we've lost a lot of musical heroes lately, but this news really hit me hard.
When I was a younger, very green engineer, I was lucky enough to work at Air Studios, Oxford St. in 1989. Before my session started I asked the receptionist if Sir George might be around and that if so, I would love to meet him and tell him how much he influenced me. She said she would pass along my request.
Sure enough, right at 4 o'clock (teatime, of course), the phone chirped and a voice said, "Sir George will see you now in Studio A".
I was allowed access to his custom designed domain and got to watch him mix, musical score strewn across the Neve, for a few minutes. When he finished, he spent an hour with me chatting about the business, telling stories about recording "Live and Let Die", and being the consummate polite English gentleman that he truly was.
We are all so very lucky that he lived in our times, and gave us so much.

Thank you Sir George.

I seriously wish I still lived in New York. I would coming begging on my hands and knees just to quietly watch your process so I could learn as much as possible from you, Dave. I've been studying your catalog and trying to pick up little things on my own. You, Sir, are an absolute inspiration. And, thank you for the videos you've done with Waves Audio. I've always known what I wanted to do with my life. I'm finally gathering the tools to do it.
loving the Waves courses. Thanks!
I'm really your south African biggest fan and you're the greatest open producer... thanks to bass hit studios and Dave Darlington I love everything about this studio...
