With the purchase of a new ATR-102 1-inch 2-track machine, SouthernTracks Recording (Atlanta) now offers clients “wide-track”analog mixdown to stereo. The ATR-102 was modified and completelyremanufactured by Michael Spitz of ATR Services in York, Pa.
“I’m a die-hard analog guy,” said Southern Tracksco-owner Mike Clark (pictured), “and when I heard one of these atan AES show, I thought it sounded great.”
The first project (not yet released) for the new machine was forIncubus; sessions were produced by Atlanta-based producer BrendanO’Brien. The sessions were tracked on Studer A827 analog,overdubbed and edited on Pro Tools, and then mixed to the 1-inch ATR.“It sounded great,” said Clark. “Everybody waspleased with the results.”
