@baeaudio #1084 modules just landed. I fell in love with the 1084 sound a few years ago. I feel offers all the things people like about the 1073 but with a more useful hi band EQ and a very musical sounding low pass filter. I’ve been using a pair of the rack mount version for vocals with a lot of success (happy singers) and wanted to bring more of that vibe to other instruments as well.

Adding a little crunchy color can be interesting as a companion to an otherwise high fidelity capture. In this case a dictation mic from the 1950’s was paired with a modern tube condenser mic to serve as a reverb/delay send with a different color than the clean vocal. When edited to feed the delay on certain words it gives a rich texture to the ambience that distinguishes it as a unique part rather than just an extension of the voice.

Posted @withregram • @cappi_01 I think we all can relate to the 3 phases of the butterfly. This butterfly however was locked and is now free!

The project “Free” leaves it’s intent within the track listing. In western haiku form the poem of the “Free Butterfly” reads…

“Butterfly Rise/Free/Now/Keep Going/Places”.

With much affection I’m proud to say-

All songs are sound sculpted by the great Alex Sterling. Recorded and finalized @precisionsoundnyc

The cover art is hand painted by the one and only @lizzy.lightning

I hope you embrace this presentation. It’s indeed dedicated to you all. With complete care I encourage you to be free!

I’m excited to share that I’ve been producing a delightful project that’s about to come out. Instrumental landscapes by me, vocals by the poetic and deeply thoughtful lyricist @cappi_01 Sometimes butterflies emerge from cocoons only to still remain trapped and locked by time and chance. Soon they will be “Free” (this Friday) wink wink.

For now embrace the single “Butterflies” by Cappi

Thank you Alex Sterling (affectionately Dr. Alex)! for your production, guidance and welcoming me into @precisionsoundnyc . I am most appreciative to you my dear friend.

Sometimes the EQ looks funny but the sound gets better. This is on a bass drum mic. Adding the boost focused the thump and punch and the cut reduced a weird overtone. Sort of like the “Pultec trick” but in this case in a much tighter pairing of frequencies and far narrower Q.

We’re always trying to improve how we do things. Whether it is to improve the client experience or increase the efficiency of operations or both. In this case I wanted to build a better video chat solution for all the remote supervised work we’ve been doing. This mobile monitoring station will serve as the new foundation for remote production supervision video and audio tie in. It runs on a dedicated Mac Pro for hosting Google Meets/Zooms with HD we**am and audio link to the studio DAW via Dante. In addition to video chat it also doubles as a mobile video monitor when doing scoring or dubbing to picture in the live room.

I’m excited to share a recently completed project that I began developing in 2018 for (and with) our good friend Alex Sterling of Precision Sound Studios. These devices are extremely overqualified studio loudspeaker switcher and level controllers (EOSLSLC??). One of these units will be installed in each of three performance spaces in the studio and will feed wall mounted speakers in each space. The engineer can choose to monitor one of two foldback signals from the console, a local professional level input, consumer level input; or in the case of one room, TV audio. This easily facilitates functions like studio wide communications during a session, cue monitoring, or a feed from a mixer during a live event. The input stage consists of transformer like THAT InGenius(TM) 1206 balanced line receivers with all the fixings. This chip features a super high input impedance and excellent common mode rejection performance for even some of the most horrendous impedance imbalances present in output signals from source devices. The consumer level inputs feature OPA 134 opamps and ground switching controls. All switching is handled by Takamisawa relays, which are controlled by an ATMEGA 328P microcontroller with Arduino bootloader + my code installed. Level control is handled with THAT 2180 VCA’s and a voltage control circuit that divides the control voltage to approximately 1/20 th of that present at the potentiometer before it hits the chip. This prevents small voltage fluctuations or irregularities from volume potentiometer adjustments from being significant and causing distortions. The output stage consists of transformer like THAT 1646 OutSmarts(TM) balanced line drivers. Output mutes are relay controlled shunts of pins 2 and 3. I designed the schematics and PCBS using KICad. The chassis were provided by our good friends at Redco. None of this would have been possible without the expert circuit assembly and wiring work provided by two of our staff technicians: Olivia Mancuso and Brian Newell. Thanks again to Alex for asking us to create these! They were designed in such a way that you hopefully never need to take advantage of the lifetime warranty😂 -Matt Schaefer Precision Sound Studios Redco Audio Crossley Acoustics
