Api Neve and presonus xmax mic pre shootout
Yeah, I know its not the most exciting thing..But, I thought some one in my shoes (budget cheapskate) may like to hear how the presonus digimax pres hold up against the venerable neve and api standards.
I recorded some lame stones wanna be acoustic guitar riff through each. I know i should of had them all setup for a single take but.. come on. I’m doing this late night after a couple beers. So its not scientific by any means but I think you can get a handle on these. The sounds are similar, actually I was pleased with how the presonus holds up. I still have my digimax fs and it tooootally is a necessity to me.
The api and neve have that snobby high end sound that is so freaking cool. I feel like i know what im doing when i record through those. But the presonus is a huge improvement over those digi 003 pres. I would seriously cry if i had only those to track through. So i can’t stress enough how important it is to make a 500 buck investment to dramatically improve your recordings.
Just now I’m thinking…. i should really A B the presonus against the digi 003 so you can see what I mean. I tried to use those pres in a pinch a couple weeks ago and could not believe how useless they are. so anyway here are the tracks…. oh btw.. its an api 512c a NEVE 81380 (ic chips not the 1073) and the digimax fs.
OK since this isn’t really a blind test, I’d recommend having a friend quiz you. the audio player is pretty responsive so its easy enough to bounce back and forth.
Solus tracks are up on soundcloud
Soundcloud is a social network for musicians. I should be posting new tracks on there. Except that I’m freaking lazy when it comes to updating profiles and such. but check it out anyway. Comes with a fancy player.

Mastering King Kong Ding Dong and A Sunny Day in Glasgow
I had the good fortune this year to help master two great albums for Philly bands.
I was really psyched to help in the mastering of A Sunny Day in Glasgow’s latest full length “ashes grammar”. Their recording process resulted in an awesome sounding record awash in ambient-ness. Mind blowing stuff
Also, King Kong Ding Dong has a new album out. Really cool stuff. Dirty acoustic guitars and bombastic drums. So many cool textures on that album. It was great fun helping Steve tweak the final masters. Definitely would love to help out with more of their stuff in the future.
If anyone is looking to master or mix their album. Hit me up.
