Featured Gear

The Trident A-Range Console

The Universal Audio 1176LN Compressor/Limiter

The Neumann U67 Tube Condenser Microphone

In the Recording Session Vault educational website project, I write articles about consoles, outboard gear units and microphones which have made an impact on the production of popular music. There are articles about the following technologies: the Trident A-Range Console, the 1176LN Compressor/Limiter, the Neumann U67 Tube Condenser Microphone and the Telefunken ELAM 251E Tube Condenser Microphone. An article about the history of the development of the Pultec EQP-1A program equalizer will be coming soon to this space.
