Universal Audio Apollo 8

  The Universal Audio Apollo came on the market just a few years ago, and today, it has become a staple in many recording studios.  Why?   There are a couple reasons for that.  Having started in the 50’s Bill Putnam set the tone (and standard) for a lot of the analog gear that we use day-to-day.  Today, Bill’s son, Bill Putnam Jr., has created a new normal by combining incredibly precise digital emulations of classic hardware pieces, and paired that with an incredibly functional and high quality audio interface.   We can start with the plugins. Universal Audio has been building software emulations of hardware pieces for over a decade now,  and as that time has progressed,  their emulation techniques have only gotten better.   Here in the Fish Tank Studios, we have put many of these plugins up against their hardware counterpart, and have the results to be almost indistinguishable!  This is UBER important for a couple reasons. For one, having plugin versions of hardware pieces allows the engineer to use as many instances as he/she wants.  You’re no longer limited to only one use of your hardware. Next, the Apollo allows for virtually ZERO latency when recording through plugins.  Not only do you get access to some of the most powerful Audio Processing plugins on the market, but you are able to use them during the tracking process. Finally, UA has used all their knowledge and expertise in both the digital, and analog world to create an incredible sounding interface. […]

How to choose your recording studio miami – The equipment! The gear!

After you have found the right engineer, you will want to make sure that you are working in an acoustically accurate, well built studio that has the latest technologies. A few panels on the walls in a square room does not a control room make! A symmetric room with non parallel walls and acoustic clouds are telling signs that the room was built well. Double walls, and floated floors are also the norm, as they prevent the transmission of sound from the outside. Technologically most of the top recording studios use Pro Tools 11 HD or higher and have an HDX system, which means that processing is done both on the computer and separate PCIe cards. This combined with a large collection of analog equipment, and a good microphone selection are paramount. Questions to ask: -Does your studio record with Pro Tools HD? -Is your room acoustically designed and built? -What type of conversion do you use? -Do you have any outboard gear? Which models and what is its value? Now that you have your studio chosen, it is time to get into the your recording studio miami! Once you have properly prepared your performance and performers it is time to bring them into the studio for the recording and overdubbing process. If you plan to have your music compete with today’s latest releases, this process can be painstaking. It is critical to get each part captured exactly as you would want. Pitch, delivery, performance of every last note is […]
