In the Production Expert podcast Russ, James and Dan ask whether analogue tape is undergoing a renaissance and if so whether it goes further than large format professional machines? The Spire from iZotope offers the immediacy of a portastudio but without the noise and distortion. Is there a difference between the people who used tape in the pre-digital days and those who have come to it as “digital natives”. They also share their finds of the week.
A Word From Our Podcast Sponsor

Two weeks ago we talked about NUGEN Audio’s VisLM loudness meter. VisLM is complemented by a loudness correction tool, LM-Correct. LM-Correct provides faster than real-time loudness analysis and immediate finishing of audio to loudness standards, with support for the ITU-R BS. 1770, EBU R128, CALM Act, Leq(m), and more.
