Studio News October 2017


Message From The Boss

Live Tour Management/Front of House shows for October saw some shows for the mighty Hoodoo Gurus in Burnie Tasmania with a rocking L Acoustics system followed up by A Day on The Green out at Mudgee with the new JPJ JBL Vertec and my oh my has that Line Array improved drastically. No more gnarly 2.5 k and 630hz, the crossover points have had a radical re work as have the horns and its Flat as a tack outdoors, loved it. Everyone else on the bill The Baby Animals, Models, Jebediah and Alex Lloyd all sounded fantastic as well, live Pa Boxes are just getting better and better to be sure.

Rusty's Tip Of The Week - Plugins

Now don't get me wrong , i love plugins and use them extensively when mixing, even though i run back through an analog board as well. But it's important to understand the nature of them as well. The first most important thing is that they are obviously in the digital realm so unlike their analog originals they DO NOT like to be overloaded. The second and very important tip for is that just inserting them on a 'track' will not affect your input path into PT at all. So don't think you are running 'through' a compressor before the signal hits PT - if you have inserted on the recording track its only on the output. To record 'through' a plugin you need to run an AUX which the input hits first and put the plug across that. Of course having some REAL outboard as well really helps....
My Current Favourites are Abbey Road TG Channel, J37 Tape Simulator,SSL4000, Reel ADT, API550EQ, Neve Sheps73 , LoAir, plus Slate Trigger, Autotune, the funky soundtoys stuff and the Bomb Factory bundle. See
