23 Mar New Gear @ Threshold Recording Studios NYC!
We’ve got some new Waves plugins recently and have been really enjoying them here at the studio. At the top of the pile are the CLA Classic Compressors, featuring software models of Chris Lord-Alge’s blue and black 1176’s, an LA-2A, and LA-3A. They sound quite excellent. The studio already has 2 hardware blue plate 1176’s, but having an unlimited supply in plugin form is quite convenient.
Our upgraded Waves bundle includes the Neve modeled V-Series. The clear winner here is the VEQ3, which is a model of the Neve 1073 EQ module.
Just a week prior we added two Neve 1073 LB preamps to our 500 series rack and been getting very positive reviews from engineers working in the room.
So between the CLA Compressors, the SSL bundle, and the Neve bundle (plus, ya know, some real hardware API and Daking EQ’s, 1176’s, and Summit, DBX, and Daking Compressors) the mix room is coming together nicely.
