Sennheiser’s evolution Series Microphones are an Integral Part of Le Poisson Rouge’s “Perfect Sound System”

New York – October 24, 2011: Now celebrating its third year in business, New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge (LPR) has reinvigorated the musical landscape of Greenwich Village –- birthplace of the Beat movement and former home to musical legends such as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Simon & Garfunkel and so many others. Located on Bleecker Street on the site of the former Village Gate, LPR has made a name for itself in a musical community that now includes more contemporary names like Florence & the Machine, the JACK Quartet and Lykke Li.

Since opening in the summer of 2008, LPR –- which has been recognized by restaurant guide Zagat® as having a “perfect sound system” — has hosted a remarkably eclectic listing of musical performances. Any given show may feature a classical pianist, hardcore avant-garde ensemble, or anything in between. Perhaps the only common element among the performances is that each one is captured using Sennheiser ’s evolution series microphones. more

Neumann KH 120 Monitors ‘Carry the Quality’ For Renaissance Audio Practitioner and McGill University Professor George Massenburg

Old Lyme, Conn., October 22, 2011: Over the course of his five-decade long career, George Massenburg has been a successful equipment designer and manufacturer, an internationally renowned record producer and engineer, a multi Grammy® Award winner, and a member of the National Recording Preservation Board of the Library of Congress. More recently, he has turned yet another page in his career, and is now an associate professor at Montreal’s prestigious McGill University, where he was named to the Dean’s Chair in the Schulich School of Music in 2010.

Fifty years ago, Massenburg first had the opportunity to hear a Neumann U 67 — a microphone he eventually acquired and still cherishes. Just weeks ago, he tried the new Neumann KH 120 studio monitor, which has earned a coveted spot in his daily workflow. In his role at McGill, the only university in North America to offer a Master’s and PhD degrees in sound recording, Massenburg is helping students understand the role that audio plays in a much broader context of film and multimedia. more

— Aerosmith’s new album, the first in eight years, will feature a rich analog sound made possible with the use of CLASP™ (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) —

NASHVILLE, TN, October 6, 2011 — Excitement among fans is electric at the news that Aerosmith is hard at work on their 14th studio album, set to be released in May 2012. It is a testament to the band’s legacy as one of the greatest bands in the world that each new Aerosmith album release is still such a huge event. Fans have been clamoring for a new set of material since 2001’s Just Push Play and 2004’s bluesy covers album Honkin’ on Bobo, and the sessions for the new record are rendering something very special – something that producer Jack Douglas is calling “raw” and “nasty.” Aerosmith’s decision to again collaborate with Douglas, who helmed sessions for the band’s classic 1970s LP’s Get Your Wings, Toys in the Attic and Rocks, indicates that the band is trying to capture an old-school, classic vibe on the new set. Helping Douglas, engineer Warren Huart and the band achieve the right sound is Endless Analog ’s CLASP™ (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) system, which uniquely integrates analog tape into the digital audio workstation environment. Together, they have all become huge CLASP devotees, and in fact they are using four CLASP units on the sessions. more
