It has been awhile but I am pleased to say that the lack of recent updates has nothing to do with a slow summer on the North Shore. This post might read more like a newsletter than a brief update so please bear with me, here we go -
The Turbo Rathvon album has finally wrapped and the guys from T.R. were gracious enough to let me publicly post the very first audio sample from the project. The track is called "Mannequin" and is one of a collection of 9 songs they plan to release very soon, so please click on the links to get official Turbo Rathvon updates on the impending release date.
I cannot be more excited to share this track. Over a year ago these gentlemen invited me over for 4 days of marathon recording. Armed with a case of mics, preamps and espresso, I showed up to help engineer the recording of the drums and nearly all of the bass guitar parts which ended up on the final mixes.
They spent the next year performing & recording their own overdubs whenever they could until this summer when they presented to me the digital audio files of all the separate instrument tracks for all nine songs. I was only too eager to roll up my sleeves and get to work on mixing & mastering the project. So without further ado, I present to you - "Mannequin" by Turbo Rathvon
In other news, the Sadkin Sound Productions website has been cosmetically re-touched - completely; content edited & streamlined but also with some notable additions - such as FULL multi-tracking capabilities. Expanding beyond what was a mixing, mastering & overdub environment, I am now able to invite most bands and group ensembles over for multi-track digital recording. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to call or email me.
In addition to the website redux, I am happy to share that I now have a 'house kit'. It is a 1979 Ludwig drum set. In fact it was my Father's (a 10 piece which I've presently setup as a 4 piece). He played it for two and a half decades all over Minnesota Country Western Music bars. I have been banging the heck out of it, but I'll replace the heads and tune it up for your session!
Even more - I have added some new audio sculpting tools. I've merrily put them each through their paces and have been met with some outstanding results. I am now able to add the sonic signatures of Neve 1073, Neve 88RS Console, Thermionic 'Culture Vulture' and the gorgeously sublime, AKG BX 20 Spring Reverb all via Universal Audio.
It doesn't end there, I have a variety of projects which are underway. I will be eager to share some additional news as soon as possible; I think it is going to be an exciting Winter.
Thank you for your continued interest.
