Antelope Audio Zodiac+ HD Mastering Converter Review

Apr 1, 2011, By Erik Zobler

Years ago, Robert Hadley at the Mastering Lab (Hollywood) rocked my audio world when, with a push of a button, he re-clocked my master mix to an Aardsync II.

Sound Devices USBPre 2 Review

Apr 1, 2011, By Brandon Hickey

About 10 years ago, Sound Devices released the USBPre. It offered a multitude of I/O options and clean mic/line gain. The sequel, USBPre 2, is as new and improved as you’d expect, but sells itself short in its name. It’s more than a USB mic preamp, offering some of the most flexible I/O options you’ll find on an interface this size. It’s also built like a tank and is the perfect back-pocket tool to bring to any gig. ...
