Rony Feliz Buys A Neve 1073OPX Mic Pre Amp For His New Studio

Rooted Studios is one of the first commercial recording studios in the USA to invest in a Neve® 1073OPX – the new Octal Microphone/Line/Instrument Preamplifier launched earlier this year by AMS Neve to mark the 50th anniversary of the legendary 1073®.

Based in Hackensack, Rooted Studios is owned by musician, engineer and producer Rony Feliz who opened the facility just as the state of New Jersey went into Covid-19 lockdown. While that could have spelled disaster for such a new venture, Rony and his staff have turned adversity into opportunity by focusing on remote mixing, recording and writing sessions.

Genesys from Neve Helps Radar Sounds Stays True To Its Analogue Roots Posted: 03/07/2020
Neve and reg; Genesys Helps Radar Sounds Stays True To Its Analogue Roots

Radar Sounds, one of the few remaining studios in the UK to offer true analogue tape recording facilities, has installed a Neve® Genesys G32 console.

Studio owner "Fuzz" Barthram-Keet says: “I already own a pair of Neve® 1073DPA mic pre-amps and I know just how much I love the sound of them, so a Neve console was top of my shopping list. The desk’s fabulous analogue design and Neve preamp circuitry allows us to keep the mix analogue from start to finish without sacrificing modern features such as hands-on DAW control and connectivity.”

Radar Sounds is located on Platts Eyot, a small island in the River Thames (close to Hampton Court). As well as tracking, Fuzz also offers mixing and mastering services and describes the business as a ‘one stop shop’ for musicians, media companies and voice over artists.

Gabriele Ferrini Realises His Dreams By Expanding His Neve and reg; Genesys Black Console

After a wait of more than 20 years, Italian musician and producer Gabriele Ferrini has finally achieved his dream of having a 64 channel Neve console as the centrepiece of his own studio.

Ferrini, who owns LG Studio in Modena, Italy, upgraded his Neve Genesys Black G32 console to a G64 by adding a 16 channel extension, supplied by AMS Neve’s exclusive local dealer Funky Junk Italy. The studio’s transformation took place just before the Covid-19 lockdown and since then Ferrini has also added a GenesysControl plugin, which is providing total integration between his Neve analogue hardware and his DAWs.

Hicktown Records Adds More Modules To Its Neve Genesys Console Posted: 15/05/2020
Hicktown Records Adds More Modules To Its Neve Genesys Console

German recording studio and music label Hicktown Records has added eight more modules to the Neve Genesys console in its main control room, bringing the desk up to G64 32-channel specifications.

Based in Rosenheim, Bavaria, Hicktown Records installed its Neve Genesys console in 2009 when the studio facility originally opened. But even then, Hicktown’s CEO, A&R manager and producer Reinhard Gross had his eye on the future because he ordered a G48 console with G64 dimensions, knowing that at some point he would want to expand it.

“When I was choosing a console, I was looking for something that had full analogue character, a fast intuitive workflow, DAW options, lots of headroom, nice onboard EQs and dynamics and, of course, good pre-amps," he says. "The only console that could fulfil all those requirements was the Genesys, and to this day I have never regretted my investment.”

AMS Neve Gives Its Classic 1073 and reg; A Thoroughly Modern Twist

AMS Neve has launched the 1073® OPX, a brand new Octal Microphone/Line/Instrument Preamplifier that is designed to meet the needs of the modern studio environment.

With the launch of the 1073® OPX, AMS Neve has taken its 1970s classic and updated it for today’s workflow by packing eight legendary 1073® remote-controlled preamps with Marinair® transformers into a 2U rack unit. Front and rear connectors give comprehensive connectivity to any Studio/Live/Broadcast environment, while modern remote-control software gives two-way control with Total Recall™ of all settings. Input sources benefit from the transformer-coupled input stage and can be connected directly to the front-mounted Mic/Line/DI input for recording in the studio control-room.

The analogue and digital monitor signal path of the 1073® OPX allows it to be used as a complete standalone I/O interface or as a live room remote preamp with a full, latency-free monitoring cue mix signal path. The optional digital I/O card comes with Neve’s industry-revered mastering-grade converters with up to 192kHz/24-Bit A/D conversion over USB connection. This ensures that the unit can be used as a Primary Audio Interface to any connected DAW-enabled computer, as well as Primary and Secondary Dante™ connectivity for Audio-over-IP applications.

The 1073® OPX is shipping now and carries a retail price £2,995 / $3,695. The price for the optional Digital I/O card is £795 / $995. As an introductory offer, AMS Neve is selling the 1073® OPX and Digital I/O card together at a special bundle price of £3,495 / $4,295.

UCLAN Neve Genesys Black Console Plays a Key Role In Mixing Projects For The Global Sound Movement Posted: 21/04/2020
UCLAN and rsquo;s Neve Genesys Black Console Plays a Key Role In Mixing Projects For The Global Sound Movement

Capturing the sound of hand-built instruments is the sole remit of the Global Sound Movement (GSM), an organisation established in 2015 by lecturers and researchers from the University of Central Lancashire. GSM samples unique instruments in their natural setting. In addition to natural ambient recordings, GSM also creates high resolution, broadcast quality virtual instruments and sound libraries that can be integrated with music production software. 

Postproduction for GSM’s recording projects is carried out at the University’s Media Factory in a professionally equipped recording studio that has a Neve Genesys Black GB32 console as its centrepiece. 

Phil Holmes, a producer and lecturer in Music Production at UCLAN, is one of the co-founders of GSM. He says: “The Neve Genesys Black is the ideal console for tackling GSM postproduction because it has such a wonderful, warm analogue sound. The fact that it is digitally controlled is also invaluable because we were able to automate the consoles analogue features, processing the samples in real time, keeping up a fast paced in-the-box workflow while maintaining absolute analogue sonic quality throughout. No other console I have worked on can achieve this. The total recall of the board meant that we could work on large sessions while compiling the thousands of samples we had collected, process them and then come back to the console session at a later date when more recordings were sent back to the studio from subsequent GSM trips.”

White Rope Music Picks The Perfect Studio Monitors From PMC Posted: 20/04/2020
White Rope Music Picks The Perfect Studio Monitors From PMC

Clarity and extra power, especially at lower frequencies, are the main reasons why White Rope Music chose to install a pair of PMC result6 compact nearfield monitors and a sub2 in its studio in West London.

White Rope Music is a music production company owned by songwriter Sacha Skarbek, a Grammy nominee and two times Ivor Novello Award winner who has written material for artists such as James Blunt and Miley Cyrus.

Max von Ameln, Sacha’s assistant and chief engineer, says: “We were looking to upgrade our existing monitoring and wanted a speaker system with a subwoofer because we sometimes had issues controlling the low end in our room. The PMCs are a big help to our working life because they give the room dynamics the extra clarity we need. We use the speakers every day and it’s good to know we are able to hear and control the sound exactly how we want to.”

Hiding In Plain Sight Is How To Succeed With DPA Lavalier Microphones Posted: 19/03/2020
Hiding In Plain Sight Is How To Succeed With DPA Lavalier Microphones

Production Sound Mixer and Location Sound Recordist David Thirion uses DPA microphones to capture audio for film and television projects because he likes their audio quality and natural sound. Equally important is the tiny size of some models, which makes them ideal for situations where they need to be hidden on actors’ bodies or in costumes.

In recent months Thirion has been experimenting with DPA’s latest bodyworn products, the 6000 Subminiature Series, in particular the 6060 Subminiature Omnidirectional lavalier microphone. On the latest series of Parlement, a new television series created by Belgian-based Artémis Productions, he used it to great effect – although not how he originally intended.

“We initially planned to use it on a female actor, but she was wearing such light silk that it was impossible to hide the mic because the weight of the cable was pulling at the fabric. Instead we used a DPA 4061 lavalier microphone secured with a bra clip, which worked just fine,” he says. "The 6060, however, did solve a different problem - mic-ing the show’s male talent whose chest was too hairy to have a microphone attached. It can be very difficult to mic up a hairy chested actor wearing a white office shirt, no tie and a blazer, but we found the perfect spot for the 6060 in the collar of the shirt. We used an URSA mini mount and covered with white URSA moleskin so that it was completely disguised. We also hid a 6060 in a tie knot using a Sanken RM11 concealer. The mic is so slim that it helped prevent any tie knot deformation.”
