Aerosmith and Producer Jack Douglas use Endless Analog’s CLASP (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) on Recording Sessions for Upcoming Album
The fans of Aerosmith are in the 7th heaven because the guys are working hard at their 14th studio album, set to be released in May 2012. Fans have been requested for a new abum since 2001’s Just Push Play and 2004’s bluesy covers album Honkin’ on Bobo, and the sessions for the new record are rendering something very special – something that producer Jack Douglas is calling “raw” and “nasty.” Aerosmith’s decision to again collaborate with Douglas, who helmed sessions for the band’s classic 1970s LP’s Get Your Wings, Toys in the Attic and Rocks, indicates that the band is trying to capture an old-school, classic vibe on the new set. Helping Douglas, engineer Warren Huart and the band achieve the right sound is Endless Analog ’s CLASP™ (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) system, which uniquely integrates analog tape into the digital audio workstation environment. Together, they have all become huge CLASP devotees, and in fact they are using four CLASP units on the sessions.

Solid State Logic said us that Danny Byrd, the well-known UK Producer, has installed in his studio Solid State Logic Nucleus Control Surface for lifting the quality of his music and audio production and also thw studio workflow.
“Originally it was Matrix that piqued my interest,” Danny explains. “I was very tempted but it was a little bit out of my price range in terms of what I could justify – mostly because I’ve always been an in-the-box producer. And then SSL Nucleus comes along with all of the controller bits from Matrix but in a much smaller package that seemed ideally suited to my needs.”
“I’ve always been a big advocate of control surfaces, and Nucleus kills many birds with one stone. You don’t have a problem quickly controlling the master volume, you’ve got it right there. And you’ve got your key commands right where you need them. Then you’ve got your SSL preamps with your mics plugged in the back. It’s funny but you don’t think that there’s much difference between, say, saving a project with your mouse through the file menu and simply pressing a button on Nucleus. Sure, you’re talking about a second’s difference, but when you’re working that makes all the difference. Already Nucleus has speeded up my workflow quite a bit.”
