Memphis recording history

Everyone knows of the great sessions at Sun Records, (Memphis Recording Services), but the history of Staxx Records down the street is very interesting as well.

The tools we used were drums, Fender bass, Fender Rhodes, electric gtr, clavinet, Hammond organ and mono synths, (Arp 2600, Mini Moog). Vocals were usually sung into a Neumann 87 or equivalent. Compression was usually LA2A, 1176. All of this to a 16 or 24 track tape deck. Ardent in Memphis, Ctiteria...

Ok, I have the Apogee. I've had the Ensemble several years.I recorded hundreds of tracks on it, several CD's and just finished a film score It's been awesome. It replaced a MOTU 1296. I rarely use the mic pre's, but am happy with them when I do.

+1 on the great read. Bob is an old school staff producer. His perspective is priceless. I found myself reading large sections of this interview to my wife, mostly, I think, because I wanted to hear it read out loud. It was riveting. Thank you for the great work.

+1 on the drum ambiance. I have a killer DW kit in a room w/sheet rock walls.
Love the pro rooms. All it takes is a budget.

It has been a great tool. I can't believe it has been discontinued. It does everything I need it to do and it works every ...
