Hollywood, CA (June 6, 2016)—Producer Tom Biller has recently added BAE Audio preamplifiers to his set-up in order to define the sound of sessions for his own psych-rock band, EFG.
He decided to add BAE Audio lunchbox modules to his home studio in the Echo Park neighborhood to maximize what he could achieve with a more streamlined setup, acquiring a BAE 1073MPL preamp as well as a pair of BAE 312A preamps.
“They’re extremely versatile,” he says. “They both work really well with a variety of sources and are highly responsive to mic placement. They’re sensitive in a way that I can EQ my signal by manipulating the mic with respect to the source.”
“I love using the 312A to track a source that I want to be able to distort later, be it with pedals or plugins,” he explains. “It also works great on things like kick drum mics, but my favorite use might be pairing it with these weird old lo-fi ribbon microphones that I sometimes use as drum overheads. It’s got plenty of gain and it captures them in a way that is perfect for mangling with distortion later on.”
