Audient reports that multi-Platinum selling music producer and songwriter Jake Gosling has added an Audient ASP880 8-channel microphone preamplifier and AD/DA converter to his Sticky Studios in Surrey, UK. Gosling first worked with Ed Sheeran in 2007 and co-produced Sheeran’s 2014 album, X, including the single “Thinking Out Loud.”
“The ASP880 has a wonderful, true clarity to its sound,” Gosling says. “I find it incredibly transparent, there is a depth of frequency there, but this doesn’t seem to complicate the true nature of what I am recording.” Gosling says the unit is “very ergonomic in design and nature [and] simple to use. It’s important for me to record quickly especially with regards to writing. I like to keep recording seamless, and to keep it simple. The ASP880 allows me to do this.”
Gosling’s current work schedule includes James Bay, Tom Odell, Mr. Probz, Jake Isaac, and All Time Low. “More recently I have been approached by more established artists, but as a rule it always has to be something that I really like,” Gosling says.
Audient operates from its headquarters in Hampshire, England.
