Surrey, UK (May 14, 2012)—Jake Gosling, an music producer, songwriter and remixer who’s worked with artists such as Ed Sheeran and Wiley, has acquired an Audient ASP008 mic preamplifer for his Surrey-based Sticky Studios.
“[Studio sales company] Kazbar Systems lent me the ASP008 as we needed extra mic pres for our DAW. I was instantly impressed with how dynamic and punchy the pres sounded and we’ve been equally impressed with how well the instrument inputs perform when used with our synths. I would highly recommend ASP008 to prospective musicians.”
Already a fan of vintage analogue, Gosling has built Sticky Studios around his old DDA console (another product developed by Audient designer, David Dearden) so it fit to add the Audient ASP008 mic pre to his kit-list. With eight channels of mic preamplifier housed in 1U of rack, ASP008 bypasses the mic pres and converters in the multi channel interface.
Most recently Gosling has co-produced Paloma Faith’s album “Fall from Grace” alongside Nellee Hooper. He has also released a number of official remixes under the alias ‘Sketch Iz Dead’ for Lady Gaga, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Kerri Hilson, Wale and Far East Movement and has played a role in developing a number of new artists. Ed Sheeran, ‘discovered’ by Gosling when Sheeran was just 15, is counted among these; the artist’s album ‘+’ went triple-platinum on the British charts (over 900,000 sales) in January of this year.
