Ease of use was another issue that needed to be addressed. Some Digital Audio Routers available had some great flexibility, oh they eliminated the physical "tangle", but at the expense of a mental tangle, the dreaded heirarchical menu or multi sequence button pushing ( Oh I know, make a macro it's easy, yeah right, using the "UFC" is always a breeze), I just wanted to push one damn button! Well I researched and came up with, utilizing some hard work & a little luck, a totally transparent Digital Audio Router.
This Digital Audio Router was approved by the absolute finest Mastering Engineers (Stephen Marcussen & Dave Collins, two hear a flea fart golden ears) and also had the ease of use that a completely stoned assistant engineer can function with at 4:30am.
The latest Digital Audio Router has been further refined both cosmetically and electronically from the original A&M model. The router though is still hand made to the highest standards. It uses a 4 layer circuit board, all AES ins and outs are transformer coupled and internally ground liftable. All AES outputs if not selected are properly terminated (nothing else out there does that). You will experience no switching pops. You may use high sample rates and 24 bit digital audio with no sacrifice in performance. All flags & clocks remain intact while passing through this router. You can use this router with absolute confidence that you are not sacrificing a thing.
The Little Labs AES Digital Audio Mastering Router is a "How did I work without it" tool that will greatly benefit any Studio or Mastering facility.
Ocean Way / JVC Mastering Hollywood, Conway Recording Studios, Stephen Marcussen Mastering, The Mix Room, Marvins Room, Interscope Records, and Producer David Kahne are among the first to have purchased one.
