Maag Audio Magnum K
Nominated for the Resolution Magazine 2017 Product Awards in the Dynamics processor category: the Maag Audio Magnum K - a dynamics processor like no other! Reviewed by George Shilling - Bank Cottage Studio in our March edition (V16.2): "The K-Comp works wonderfully (on vocals and other sources); this almost always attacks exactly the right area to tame nasties. It works smoothly and invisibly, and I found I could often wind the Threshold up very high and make the LED meter glow intensely with no detrimental artefacts."

We asked Rob Kirwan, interviewed this month by Russell Cottier in Resolution Magazine - What did you learn from other producers? - "I think the most I learnt was from the producers that didn’t have a clue. It was the ones who didn’t know what they were doing, then I would say okay ... well I'm never going to do it like that. The ones who knew what they were doing, within 30 seconds had a pretty fantastic drum sound; as an assistant or an engineer sometimes you don’t know why that is, and nobody has time to explain how to get that sound, you try and work out how it happened later. I worked a bit with Spike Stent, the way he makes people feel when they record is great." ... See MoreSee Less

Reviewed this month in Resolution Magazine , the Aston Microphones Starlight:
"An initial walk around the Starlight with the voicing at the Hybrid setting shows that the off-axis frequency response is indeed very smooth and balanced up to the 90 degree point, after which it starts getting quite lumpy. Direct comparison with a KM184 and an AKG C451 reissue with spoken word on-axis shows that the Starlight is a little brighter and harder sounding – and remains so whichever of the three voicings is selected. The difference between these three settings is quite subtle – the Modern setting pushes high-mid presence, giving a sound that is best described as more forward rather than brighter. Vintage removes this bump, and lifts the LF response ever so slightly. Hybrid sounds fractionally (and I mean fractionally) brighter than Vintage, and a little tighter in the low mids."
