I had a little, internal fit today when introduced to this incredible piece of Digital-age Audio re-mastery.
The Rolling Stones’ Gimme Shelter split into 9 tracks to solo at your discretion!
Not only is this my favourite Stones song of all time, I can now solo in on Merry Clayton’s amazingly heartwrenching and infamous vocal crack (which supposedly lead to a miscarriage, mind you) to bask in the sick glory of the “one shot” nature of Analogue recording of yesteryear.
A little bit of Audio Engineering porn for all you Analogue purists and Stones fans.
So this little guy packs a punch. The Triton Audio Neolev is a “magnetic levitation damper” that introduces an air-gap between hard surfaces and say, for example, your studio monitors to reduce and cancel contact resonance.
Your gear will be literally HOVERING, so flanking paths are a thing of the past! After completing an Acoustic Design unit last semester in which I designed both a commercial and a home studio with a great deal of costly acoustic treatments in each, this futuristic little magnet thing would have made my budgeting job a far sight easier if it had been released but 4 weeks earlier. Hindsight is glorious.
Regardless, I want some! You could set anything levitating (with an 8kg capacity for each, 4 of these could hold up nearly any kind of household appliance), simply for the hell of it.
