SSL ANNOUNCES MATRIX CONSOLE
At this year's Musikmesse show in Frankfurt, Germany, Solid State Logic introduced the Matrix SuperAnalogue 16-channel, 40-input mixing console with built-in signal router and multi-layer digital workstation control. Matrix is designed to bring analog sound into a digital workflow by providing the tools to work effectively in both domains simultaneously.

The 16-channel console offers dual summing inputs, aux sends and additional returns, providing more than 40 summed inputs to mix output. Matrix is also a 16+1 fader, four-layer DAW controller that uses an Ethernet connection for single-cable, high-speed workstation control for most popular DAWs, including Pro Tools, Logic, Live and Reason. An integrated, recallable, software-controlled 32x16x16 analog routing matrix eliminates the need for external patchbays, bringing outboard analog processing into a DAW workflow. Matrix also offers independent main and mini monitor outputs, an Artist Monitor output with independent EQ and source selection, three external monitor inputs with source summing and a front panel iJack input.

A Mac and Windows compatible application provides platform-independent project management and routing control, including FX chains and routing set-ups to simplify patching outboard units through the router.

Matrix will be available worldwide through selected SSL Resellers in May 2008 with a MSRP of $25,995.

RECORDING TIP
USING A TUBE MIC ON A BLUEGRASS SESSION
Producer/engineer/recording artist Randy Kohrs used Lauten Audio’s Horizon tube microphone on Jim Lauderdale’s 2008 Grammy-winning album, The Bluegrass Diaries (Yep Roc Records), which won for Best Bluegrass album. The Bluegrass Diaries features Jesse Cobb on mandolin, Richard Bailey on banjo, Jay Weaver on bass, Cody Kilby on guitar, Randy Kohrs on resonator guitar and harmony vocals, Aaron Till on fiddle, Ashley Brown and Cia Cherryholmes on vocal harmonies, and other special guests.

Kohrs used the Horizon exclusively on fiddles, all second guitar overdubs, and female harmonies. "On the female harmonies, the Horizon helped the soft voices cut through the hard-hitting vocals of Jim and me, without having to EQ all the body out of them,” Kohrs explains. “For me, that’s a lot of finite EQ work I never have to do with the Horizon tube microphone. On the fiddle, it helped the lower, sweet, woody tones speak through a barrage of midrange instruments, like the banjo and resonator guitar, and brought out the clarity. Aaron Till said he had never heard his fiddle so well-recorded."

MIX CLASSICS
Owen Records Patsy
In a couple of weeks, Mix magazine subscribers will find our April issue in their mailboxes, but we editors are already working on stories for a special May Mix that puts a spotlight on Nashville. Coinciding with Mix’s first-ever Mix Nashville pro audio event, to be held May 20-21, we’ll take readers on a tour of state-of-the-art studios and introduce the people—from project studio owners and singer/songwriters to A-list musicians and producers—who make Music City hum. We’ll also look back at memorable studios and recordings, and goodness knows no Nashville history lesson would be complete without mentioning pioneering producer/studio owner/label exec/musician Owen Bradley, the architect of the “Nashville Sound.”

To whet your appetite for our big Nashville splash, read the “Classic Tracks” article that ran in our August 2003 issue, about Bradley’s recording of Patsy Cline’s “Crazy.”
