Ed Sheeran producer, Jake Gosling, has installed an Audient ASP008 mic preamp at Sticky Studios.
The equipment was supplied by high-end studio sales company Kazbar Systems. Already a fan of vintage analogue, Gosling has built Sticky Studios around his old DDA console (another product developed by Audient designer, David Dearden). With eight channels of premium mic preamplifier housed in a compact 1U of rack, ASP008 bypasses the mic pres and converters in the multi-channel interface to bring warmth, clarity and punch to recordings.
Gosling explained: “Kazbar Systems lent me the ASP008 as we needed extra mic pres for our DAW. I was instantly impressed with how dynamic and punchy the pres sounded and we’ve been equally impressed with how well the instrument inputs perform when used with our synths. I would highly recommend ASP008 to prospective musicians.”
Most recently Gosling has co-produced Paloma Faith's album Fall from Grace alongside Nellee Hooper. He has also released a number of official remixes under the alias Sketch Iz Dead for Lady Gaga, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Kerri Hilson, Wale and Far East Movement and has played a pivotal role in developing a number of new artists.
