Chameleon Labs 7603 and 7603 Xmod with Carnhill Transformers reviewed by George Shilling - Bank Cottage Studio in this month's Resolution Magazine: "Both 7603s do seem slightly less coloured than the recent Neve 1073 SPX reissue with its rich sounding Marinair transformers ... the Chameleons are both impeccable performers which sound terrific, and are competitively priced. These are not exact Neve clones; they sound like cousins rather than twin brothers, but I liked them a lot." ... See MoreSee Less

Cenzo Townshend's Decoy Studios has joined the Miloco Studios roster. Cenzo featured in Resolution Magazine V16.3 (May 2017). Decoy Studios is a dual facility with one half of the building home to a private and self-contained Recording Suite, complete with its own live room, control room and vocal booth, (aka The Library), as well as a kitchen and living space. The right side of the building is where you will find Cenzo Townshend’s Mix Suite – mostly occupied with his own projects – however all spaces are for hire subject to availability. When Resolution visited Decoy Studios , we were impressed - not only by the incredible attention to technical detail - but also by the beautiful sweeping views over the beautiful Suffolk countryside from the control room windows

"Content, content, content" says 5 time Emmy-winner and Resolution Magazine columnist Dennis Baxter. "In addition to visual content with immersive sound, I am excited about music production and reproduction over immersive soundbars. Spatialization has always been used in music from spring reverbs to room simulators, but my experience with immersive is that creative spatialization of musical content has far more interesting possibilities than mixing music in 5.1 surround."
[Dennis Baxter has engineered the sound for the Commonwealth Games, FIFA Club World Cup, NASCAR, and hundreds of other sporting events around the world including the Atlanta Gamers, Sydney Olympic Games, Salt Lake City Olympics, Athens 2004 Olympics, Torino, Beijing 2008 Games, Vancouver and Olympic 2012 London Games.]

Swiss based Phonak are well known to location sound recordists for their VHF based 'invisible' earpieces, used for silent playback on sets to allow dialogue and sometimes singing to be recorded clean, in sync with a pre-recorded backing track. As with so much in the world of audio, digital encoding has changed audio quality for the better : "Initial listening tests at short range were impressive, the audio quality is a marked improvement on even the VHF Phonak AG units and, if one is within range, nothing seems to cause audio interference. Speech was perfectly intelligible with a natural tone even at low levels." ... See MoreSee Less
