SADiE’s BB2 helps Hackney Podcast Take Sony Gold

SADiE’s innovative BB2 desktop audio editing system helped producer Francesca Panetta scoop this year’s Sony Gold Award for Best Internet Programme. Set up by herself and Felix Carey in 2008, the podcast seriously impressed the judges, who commented: “The Hackney Podcast is just the type of targeted and locally orientated content that sets podcasting apart from conventional radio broadcasting. Using first rate contributors the podcast examined how water fits into the lives of people in Hackney. The production quality is outstanding giving the whole listen a water-like lyricism that carries the listen through to its conclusion.�

All of the award-winning series of Hackney podcasts have been edited on SADiE’s BB2, and are driven by the paradox that one of London’s historically most-deprived areas is now also one of its fastest-growing and most culturally diverse. It was this contrast that initially led Panetta to, as she puts it, “combine local politics, environmental issues and everyday lives with art, literature and music.â€? Her Hackney podcasts were designed from the outset to “provide a space with no rules, a platform to push the boundaries of traditional programme making,â€? she adds. The latest editions, Night and Water, the latter of which won the Sony Award, used sound design, environmental recordings, new music, poetry, readings and commentary to allow Hackney residents to hear their neighbourhood in a completely different way. more…

JESSUP, MARYLAND – JUNE 2010: A direct descendent of Saul Walker’s original 1967 design, the API 512C modular mic preamp embodies the legendary API sound and has been a mainstay of engineers for over three decades. Coming on the heels of API’s 40th anniversary and the delivery of the 100th 1608 console, the company recently celebrated another milestone: delivery of the 10,000th 512C. To mark the event, API president Larry Droppa dropped a note inside the 10,000th box. Toronto-based guitarist and composer Brian Legere received the unit, the note, and – complements of API – API 512C number 10,001!

Legere has been working in the Toronto-area for nearly thirty years – almost as long as the API 512C has been in production. An accomplished guitar player, Legere has worked in the studio with famed producer Daniel Lanois (U2, Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan); both men grew up in Hamilton Ontario. Legere’s compositions and guitar work can be heard on the Speed Channel’s “Dream Car Garage” and “Chop Cut Rebuild.” more…
