Brendan Benson and Engineer Joe Costa Choose Endless Analog’s CLASP (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) for Benson Solo Project
As songwriter-musician Brendan Benson was brainstorming in the weeks leading up to the tracking sessions for his next solo project, his thoughts kept coming back to the sound of his favorite recordings, which were made using analog tape. Benson is by no means anti-digital, as he has embraced Pro Tools over the last several decades, based on the ease it has allowed in tracking his demos and solo projects by himself, but he strongly believes in the realistic sound of analog tape that he grew up on. Eventually he discovered the perfect way to bridge the two worlds: Endless Analog ’s CLASP™ (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor), which uniquely integrates analog tape machines into the digital audio production workflow.
“When I first heard about the CLASP, I was intrigued, and I said, ‘Sure, let’s give it a shot,’ but I’ll admit I was leery,” recalls Benson. “But then Chris Estes [Endless Analog President/Founder and CLASP inventor] was generous enough to show my engineer Joe Costa and me how it worked and let us hang onto it for a few days. I must say, I was very impressed. It does exactly what it is supposed to, and its stability is rock-solid – it just doesn’t screw up. Joe had a crash course in CLASP, and he was just as impressed as I was. We ended up buying the unit and have been using it ever since. And CLASP is just so cool – there’s no latency. It’s just genius. I’m surprised no one thought of this sooner! Chris Estes made it happen.”
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.”
