H******* Console

Post by burnsound » Wed Feb 16, 2011 2:23 am

Why?

H******* Consoles sound great.
One was reportedly used on Michael Jackson's "Thriller" album.
Many films were mixed through them, and some still are. H******* consoles were reportedly the go-to mix console for major film releases for years.

Please, somebody sample a H******* console!

I have asked for that one too.
Didn't know about movies but yeah Thriller was mix on a H******* console (in Westlake, studio D,I don't remember the model, it worth checking it).
I think it as a lot to do with Bruce Swedien (and Quincy Jones!and Michael...RIP)... more than the console.

But I'm with Burnsound on this one.

PS: B.Swedien and Q. got a crazy patented recording system called Acusonic to add to Michael,the production,the recordings, the FX racks,etc... But yeah, a H******* console, modified or not !

Michael (Angel not Jackson)?, Alessandro ?, Niklas ?,Bob ? Eric ? Somebody else ?

Just found this from the H******* website:

"H******* music consoles are renowned for their pristine sound. In the 70's, ABBA produced all their hits on their H******* console at Polar Studios. The acapella introduction to Kansas' "Carry On My Wayward Son" was recorded from H******* console preamps directly to tape. Throughout the 80's, seminal music works were mixed on H******* consoles: Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and "Bad" albums were both recorded on a H******* console by Bruce Swedien. Janet Jackson's "Rhythm Nation" was mixed on a H******* SeriesTen, And Sade's album Promise (inlcuding the track "Sweetest Taboo") was recorded on a H******* Series24 and mixed on a H******* MR3. High-profile music projects continue to be mixed on H******* consoles. "

Pretty colorful history for those interested.

He didn't release this program officialy yet, that's for sure.
But it might be still in his treasure chest ...
The best thing to do is to ask Michael.
