The 1176 Limiting Amplifier Deep Dive

The 1176 is considered a classic in the audio world. What exactly is the 1176? What type of compressor is it? What kind of controls? Chris & Jody go thru the history of the 1176, various brands of it, hardware and software. It’s also not unlikely that there will also be some nonsense discussed.

Friday Finds #20



We’re coming up on the end of the run of Friday Finds. One more to go after this one and then it will be in the podcast. Until then, you have this week’s Friday Finds where Chris unleashes about a new reverb he’s discovered and Jody props up a brand new microphone. Which reverb and which microphone are we talking about?!? Listen in a find out. It’s also not unlikely that there will also be some nonsense discussed.

Shoutout to:
Eventide for the Blackhole Reverb.
Telefunken for the TF11 microphone.

Chris asks Jody to discuss the biggest lesson he’s learned for recording in the DAW era. Jody reveals his workflow and using using multiple DAW files in his process from tracking to mastering.

Friday Finds #19



This week’s Friday Finds has Chris & Jody discussing two plugins. Chris talks about an old Camel Audio plugin called Camel Space (regardless of what Chris calls it in the video) which has since morphed into the Step FX in Logic Pro X. Jody is bringing up a plugin he learned about at NAMM 2020. The infamous Soothe 2 by Oek Sound

It’s also not unlikely that there will be some nonsense discussed.

Shoutout to: Apple for Step FX via the Camel Audio dudes. To the men at Oek Sound for turning Jody on to their products.
