TAPE OP MAGAZINE - ISSUE 72 We recently added a Pro Tools HD rig to our studio, and an unexpected hitch was that the pre-"VT" Lynx Aurora 16 interfaces we bought don't have trimming capabilities. Since we often track to tape and then dump to digital for mixing, I immediately realized that any signal with a healthy level on tape was too hot for the Aurora's converters. I was a   [read on...]

It smooths out the sharp, brittle edges to exactly the extent you choose, and fills in the hairline cracks just right. I use one on almost every mix I do. I could easily use one and quite possibly two more.” - George Massenburg “The winner of the highly -coveted,   [read on...]
