Equipment

Analog outboard

Die Erzeugung eines natürlichen, organischen akustischen Tons kann nur mit analogem Equipment erfolgen, das das Signal mit natürlichen Methoden behandelt.

Großen Wert lege ich ebenso auf Bewahrung dieses analogen Sounds bei der digitalen Wandlung mittels des Neve AD Wandlers. Das klangtechnische Herzstück meines Studios sind die Neve Pre-Amps/AD-Wandler und der Neve 16-Kanal analog Summierer mit den nachgeschalteten Neve-, Manley-EQs und dem Tubetech Multibandkompressor.

Absolut verlassen kann ich mich dabei auf meine kalibrierten 8250 Genelec Boxen, die mir jede Aufnahme so zeigen, wie sie tatsächlich ist.

Eine Bandmaschine ist nach meiner Erfahrung in ihrer Kompression durch Bandsättigung durch nichts zu ersetzen.
