Santa Fe, NM (May 12, 2016)—Kitchen Sink Recording Studio has relocated to downtown Santa Fe, adding a new Audient ASP8024 analog mixing console with Dual Layer Control (DLC) to an existing collection of equipment.
The facility is the product of audio engineers Jono Manson and Tim Schmoyer's pooled talent and resources. The “new” location is actually an old studio, where they were lucky enough to keep and renovate some of the equipment left behind by previous owners.
"My old studio already had a nice complement of gear, all of which migrated to the new location," says Manson, who had owned the original Kitchen Sink Recording Studio just north of the city for the previous 10 years. A collection of vintage microphones and two analog tape machines came with the new place, he reports.
He continues, "The desk is extremely well designed, and very intuitive. The routing is extensive and very flexible. With the exception of a couple questions regarding the functions of the DLC, I have not had to crack the manual once since the desk has been up and running. I've been spending 12 to 15 hours a day in front of the ASP8024 and I can now honestly attest to the fact that, whether in tracking or mixing, all of the glowing endorsements were 100 percent true."
