THE MIX

Joe Kelly recently completed Studio B at Kelly/Silver Digital Recording of Grayslake. The voice booth bypasses the console for the cleanest tracks possible. What does Joe use in the mike chain? The audio moves from a Neuman U-89 mike to a Harvey mike pre-amp to a Neve Limiter/Compressor to a Sony DAT deck. This signal is applied to channel 2 of the DAT. Channel 1 is delivered with additional processing from a Lexicon PCM70 effects box and a Sony parametric equalizer. Congrats to Joe and crew on their first birthday under the Kelly/Silver corporate banner!
