    Behind The Gear: Crucial Audio
    Steve Kollander launched Crucial Audio in 2005 and soon after released the beloved Echo-Nugget, a portable analog delay in the stomp-box format. The Echo-Nugget combines a boutique tube preamp with the classic sound of a Bucket Brigade Device (BBD) delay. Designed as a sturdier alternative to tape echoes, guitarists and engineers quickly fell in love with its warm, gooey sound. Since then, Crucial Audio has released a series of popular devices, including several based on the original Echo-Nugget design, including the Studio-Nugget. This rackmount version is custom-voiced for studio use and also comes in a stereo version. Continue reading →

But with so many different control surfaces available, it can be difficult to choose the best one for your workflow. In this Buyer's Guide, you'll learn exactly what to look for when purchasing a control surface to ensure you find the perfect model. Continue reading →

  5. Studio One Sixty Four Revitalizes Chicago's Legendary Carnegie Hall Live Record

    Studio One Sixty Four Revitalizes Chicago's Legendary Carnegie Hall Live Record
    Between April 5th and 10th, 1971, the legendary American rock band Chicago performed and recorded eight shows at the world-famous Carnegie Hall. In October of that year, highlights from the performances were featured on the band’s first-ever live album, which is still the band’s best-selling live album to date. To honor the 50th anniversary of these historic concerts, Chicago is releasing all eight Carnegie Hall shows in their entirety in a new 16-CD deluxe boxed set, fully restored and mixed on a classic SSL 4064 G+ console. However, restoring and mixing these 50-year-old performances was no easy task. Tim Jessup, mix engineer and studio manager of Studio One Sixty Four (owned by Chicago founding member and trumpeter Lee Loughnane), recruited Vintage King to outfit the new studio with its SSL 4064 G Series console and multiple racks of analog outboard gear.
