New York, NY (August 1, 2006)–Jon Altschiller recently engineered the new album for Australian band, Evermore, with producer John Alagia, at Longview Farms (www.longviewstudios.com) in North Brookfield, MA. Tracks were recorded using the Neve 8078 desk to Pro Tools HD through Apogee AD16X, clocked with the Apogee Big Ben. The vocal chain was a BLUE Modified U47 through a Saldano mic pre.
The band had recorded lots of guitar tracks direct using virtual amplifiers, and Altschiller and Alagia chose to re-amp these tracks through real amplifiers, utilizing different microphone placement and natural room sound.
Altschiller and his Chiller Sound facility have also been working with many SCI Fidelity artists, beginning with Keller Williams, for whom we recorded and mixed two tracks for his forthcoming album, both featuring Charlie Hunter and Derrick Phillips, playing live in our own facility. He also recorded vocals for a track on the new Umphrey’s McGee album, Safety in Numbers, featuring Huey Lewis, and recently have been hard at work on a brand new live CD/DVD for San Francisco band Tea Leaf Green, mixing in stereo and surround.
Teaming up with Relix Records, Chiller Sound just wrapped mixing on most of the tracks for the Jammy’s HD Net broadcast, also in surround and stereo, which featured artists like Buddy Guy, John Mayer, Ryan Adams, Steve Winwood, Perry Ferrell, Les Claypool, Warren Haynes, and Trey Anastasio, to name a few. These performances will also be available on the upcoming Jammy’s retrospective DVD. Also, Chiller Sound was just awarded the job of post-mixing all of the Bonnaroo 2006 digital downloads, where complete sets from the festival are remixed and mastered from multi-track recordings and made available online. Altschiller and co. are looking forward to a very productive rest-of-the summer.
Further, back in May, Altschiller expanded Chiller Sound to include live location recording, using a mobile Pro Tools Accel rig, with mostly API and ATI mic pres. Altschiller did all the multitrack location recording for the ASCAP Music Lounge performances, which took place at the Canal Room in NYC, as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. Artists performing included John Mayer, Elvis Costello with Allen Toussaint, Patti Griffin, Nellie McKay, Brazilian Girls, Lisa Hannigan, Josh Ritter, Rodney Crowell and David Ford.
