  • Comparing The New Royer R-10 Ribbon Microphone To The R-121

    Last week I was introduced to the new Royer R-10 Bi-Directional ribbon microphone. The R-10 is very similar to the classic R-121 in design. It’s small and lightweight, which allows you to position the microphone without any intrusion, and utilizes the same ribbon transducer.

    Throughout this blog, we’ll look at what makes each of these microphones special in their own regard and pit them against each other in a shootout on some different guitars and amplifiers. Continue reading

  • What Is Waves SoundGrid And Why Do Studios Need It?

    When talking to colleagues in the studio world and comparing how we move audio from one room to another, the terminology that often comes up includes Dante, Sound Connect and AVB. However, if you talk to a live sound engineer, you’re more than likely to hear them mention the term SoundGrid.

    By using SoundGrid technology from Waves, live sound engineers are able to network audio from one console to another and take advantage of plug-in processing DSP at the same time. If this is the case, why is it that predominantly live sound engineers are the only ones taking advantage of SoundGrid? If it works so well, why aren’t more studios utilizing it as being a network audio protocol? Continue reading

  • First Listen: A Review of the Soyuz SU-023 Bomblet

    The SU-023 Bomblet is the newest in a long line of high quality, handmade mics by the brand, Soyuz Microphones. Every Bomblet is 100% hand-made in house by master machinists in Russia, including the mic’s capsule, which is modeled after the vintage 19A19 LOMO microphone.

The SU-023 Bomblet’s transformer is hand wound at their factory and uses a specially designed toroidal core. Continue reading

  • Comparing A Vintage Fairchild 670 To The UnderTone Audio UnFairchild 670M

    The Fairchild 660 and Fairchild 670 vintage compressors are the most sought after and coveted compressors of all time. They have been the top choice for tracking and mix engineers for over five decades because of the signature glow and warmth they add to whatever source you run through them, even if no compression is actually happening. They have been the choice compressor for The Beatles, Pink Floyd, classic Motown records and many more. Loaded with 20 tubes, 14 transformers and miles of wiring, it’s no wonder that the Fairchild has a sound that has been unmatched… Until now.

    UnderTone Audio is a pro audio company run by recording guru Eric Valentine. Valentine has been making records for over 25 years and worked with many of today’s top artists. He has used pretty much every piece of gear on the planet and knows how to create gear that caters to the modern tracking and mix engineer. Engineers such as Greg Wells swear by Valentine’s designs, as Wells traded in his vintage Neve console for one of UnderTone Audio’s custom recording consoles. Continue reading
