Larry Janus, Tube Equipment Corporation
Jeff Roberts, Latch Lake Music - Eagan, MN, USA
This Workshop will discuss continuing, and outdoing, audio design achievements of the 20th Century into the 21st. Our panel of experts will discuss criteria that made classic gear great, and how the designs created them and the philosophies implemented them are to continue into future. Attention is paid to the designs themselves, the needs and uses in the studio, and the difficulties encountered. Archut, Manning, Roberts collaborated in construction of the CS-1 Microphone, which hearkens back to classics, yet is also innovative. With Janus taking the lead, all contributed to the Moonray Preamplifier, and are working on other innovative products.
