Hudson Pacific Properties Relaunches 6050 Sunset Blvd, Formerly Known as Ocean Way Recording, as United Recording

Historic Music Studio Returns to Its Original Name

UnitedRecording_logo_250px

Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc.(NYSE:HPP) announced today the launch of United Recording under the original name of the famed recording studio located at 6050 Sunset Blvd. United Recording, located at Sunset Gower Studios, was formerly known as Ocean Way Recording. United Recording, one of the world’s most recognized music recording studios, is responsible for record sales of more than one billion units. United Recording was founded in 1957 by the legendary recording engineer and electronics inventor Bill Putnam with the backing of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra.

“This is a pivotal time in the studio’s history,” stated United Recording Manager, Rob Goodchild. “We look to the future while holding ourselves to the standards of our past.” The original control rooms and recording spaces have remained virtually the same, retaining the classic acoustic design favored by artists ranging from Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Ray Charles, to modern hit makers such as Radiohead, Green Day and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. “United Recording is a legendary studio in the heart of Hollywood. It is not only a piece of entertainment industry history but remains a highly sought-after production space for top artists,” said Bill Humphrey, General Manager, Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson Studios. The famed recording studios have remained untouched, with the original equipment in place run by industry-leading technical staff, while the lounges and common spaces have undergone significant upgrades.

Hudson Pacific Properties acquired the studio in 2013 and is striving to continue the legacy of this historic recording studio. Victor Coleman, CEO of Hudson Pacific Properties, added, “The rebranding back to the original name, United Recording, is one component of a continued investment in strategic media and entertainment properties and reinforces our goal of providing exceptional multimedia production facilities and services to global media and entertainment clients.”

TELEFUNKEN Introduces M60 FET Microphone at AES

Small Diaphragm Condenser is Company’s First FET Mic
TFunk_M60_FET_400px

With over a year and half of development and beta testing with top recording engineers, the newly designed M60 FET (Field Effect Transistor) small diaphragm microphone is TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik’s first non-vacuum tube, FET-based solid-state condenser microphone.

Utilizing a unique proprietary circuit topology, this re-interpretation of the classic FET mic amplifier produces an exceptional transient response and SPL handling capabilities. Carefully selected and tested components are hand-plugged into gold-plated circuit board traces to provide an ultra-clean true Class A discrete amplifier with a frequency response of +/- 2dB from 20Hz to 50KHz.

The output is matched with a custom American-made transformer that offers an especially low self-noise and a typical THD+N of 0.015% or better, making it ideal for critical recording applications.

Designed to utilize the same interchangeable TK6X capsule systems as the TEC Award-winning ELA M 260 small diaphragm tube microphone, the M60 FET is an excellent tool for both acoustic and percussive sources. The TK60 cardioid, TK61 omnidirectional and the TK62 hypercardioid capsules are offered individually or in complete sets, as well as matched pairs of M60 FET amplifiers and capsule sets for stereo recording capabilities. Orders for the M60 FET will be taken at AES, with shipping beginning in January 2015.

Hear the new M60 FET and the entire line of TELEFUNKEN microphones at the 2014 AES Convention in Los Angeles, Booth #1125.

Swineshead Picks DAD AX32 for Classical Recording and Mastering

David Bowles Employs Newest AD/DA Converter from Digital Audio Denmark

Bowles_AX32_1_400px
Pictured during a remote recording date at St. Ignatius Church in San Francisco is engineer/producer David v.R. Bowles with the new AX32 converter from Digital Audio Denmark.

Prominent classical music recording engineer/producer David Bowles has purchased the new Digital Audio Denmark AX32 AD/DA converter from US distributor plus24. Bowles’s company, Swineshead Productions, LLC specializes in classical music recording, but also includes jazz and crossover genres. A recent Swineshead project was recorded at St. Ignatius Church in San Francisco: Christmas music performed by the chorus Cappella SF, conducted by Ragnar Bohlin.

A pristine AD and DA converter with superb sonic quality, versatile I/O structure and Dante IP Audio, the AX32 follows the success of the company’s AX24 with enhanced sonic conversion performance, up to 48 analog audio channels, and a flexible digital signal interface, routing and distribution structure.

“I used the AX24 two years ago,” remarked David Bowles. “While I felt it was an excellent unit, it only had eight channels. Since that time, not only has DAD expanded the channel count but, also very importantly, they have introduced an IP interface, which is primarily what I’ll be using in my workflow.”

DAD’s new AX32 AD/DA converter and digital router interface is the ideal choice as a front-end or digital format converter for recording or mastering applications where up to 48 channels of analog inputs or outputs are needed. The AX32 provides a variety of digital interfaces such as ProTools HD, MADI, AES and Dante IP audio. A microphone pre-amp option is also available.

“Using the Dante technology for audio over IP,” explains Bowles. “Means that with a simple network switch, a whole raft of signals can be routed to two or more different devices simultaneously. As it is, right out of the box, the AX32 has a number of interfaces — not only the IP, but also MADI, AES and ProTools. This allows me, without any sort of splitter, to make two completely redundant recordings of the same audio signal.”

Designed for flexibility, reliability, easy operation and no-compromise sound quality, the AX32 offers a comprehensive range of digital interfaces and sample rate formats for meeting a number of diverse applications such as studio recording, location recording, audio post-production and film scoring.

“Now with both the optical MADI and the IP interfaces,” Bowles continues, “I can place the units right next to the microphones, so there are very short cables needed. As everyone knows, analog signal degrades with increasing lengths of cable.”

Bowles recounts a recent project: “When I tried out the DAD AX32 in June, I was working on two live recordings. I set them up as stereo, with only two microphones. My outboard mic pre has split outputs: I was able to route two outputs through my current setup, then two outputs through the DAD. I recorded these at 192 kHz and then compared them at home. I then brought one of my clients in and just gave him an A/B comparison. We both picked the AX32. It was simply clearer. The imaging was a lot better, and I felt that the previous A to D converter I used was very good, but now sounded coarse in comparison.”

To better evaluate the new DAD AX32, Bowles has been going back through his recent archives: “I’ve been listening to a lot of my projects, simply using the D to A conversion of the AX32. Again, there are just so many improvements and I’m able to apply some very subtle changes in mixing and processing, and hear the results immediately. Now, because the AX32 is something I can take on the road, I can have the same setup at home as on location — both for recording and for monitoring.”

As an option with the DAD AX32, the Dante IP interface allows third party Dante-enabled equipment from more than 140 manufacturers to interface to the AX32 via Ethernet. Audinate’s Dante Controller is a free software application that enables users to route audio and configure devices on a Dante network. With automatic device discovery, one-click signal routing and user-editable device and channel labels, setting up a Dante network is simple and straightforward.

“Combining the Dante IP interface in the AX32 with Audinate’s Dante Virtual Soundcard means that the unit has a wide variety of applications for recording, and also for editing and mastering. I have tried the Virtual Soundcard on three different editing workstations, where it worked flawlessly and after I get back from my next location recording trip I’m going to try it on a fourth one.”

Award-winning recording engineer David Bowles formed Swineshead Productions, LLC as a classical recording production company in 1995. Bowles-produced and engineered releases have been named “Record of the Month – Editor’s Choice” from Gramophone Magazine, MusicWeb International and Opera News; “Record of the Year” from the New York Times (three times), the New Yorker, American Record Guide, Miami Clasica and Classical Candour.

As an educator, Bowles is a guest lecturer at New York University’s Tonmeister Seminar (Steinhardt School of Music) and at Peabody Recording Arts and Sciences (John Hopkins University). He was Visiting Professor of Recording Arts at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. Bowles is on the Board of Governors of the AES, and is a member of the P&E Wing and SPARS.
