Los Angeles, CA (August 24, 2012)-Korn frontman Jonathan Davis is recording a new side project and a solo project using Antelope Audio's new Eclipse 384 converter, master clock and monitor controller.
Korn is on the road, touring behind its 10th studio album, 2011's Path of Totality, featuring collaborations with a host of dubstep producers including multiple Grammy Award-winner Skrillex. Now, Davis is doubling down on his recent statement that "North American dubstep is the new electronic heavy metal" through a side project, Killbot, and a solo project under his DJ name, J Devil.
Davis recently added the Eclipse 384 AD/DA converter in order to streamline his mobile production rig after spotting it on the Antelope Audio web site. The 384 kHz A-to-D/D-to-A converter uses the same Oven Controlled Clock and 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology that is in Antelope Audio's Trinity Master Clock. The Eclipse 384 offers additional features conducive to mobile production applications, including two dedicated headphone amplifiers and a custom USB interface, as well as two large peak meters on the front panel. Users can create up to five custom presets of favorite setups via the system's OS X- and Windows-compatible software control panel.
"This is all I've got now; I used to have racks of stuff," says Davis, who records vocals, guitar and bass into an Apple MacBook Pro through a signal chain comprising little more than the Antelope Eclipse 384, an API Channel Strip and a Shure microphone. "It's basically my studio all in one box. It's the best interface I've used. I love that everything is right there," he says of the Eclipse.
"The Eclipse is essential, because it gives me everything I need to work on the road and not just make a demo. The stuff I actually do on the road, I keep and it sounds great-it's not just a demo that I have to rework or re-record later," he says.
