Aerosmith and Producer Jack Douglas Use Endless Analog’s CLASP™ on Sessions for Upcoming Album

— 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
