I wanted to share something Joe posted to my personal Facebook page the other day. "On John Hesterman’s cd ...man you nailed that Capital Records vintage sound. You’re my hero!! I’m still in awe how you were able to recreate that chamber “A” sound." Thanks, Joe.Your strings set the vibe... great arrangements!
A tribute to our friend, and a fine musician and singer, Tehani Geistlinger, who passed away recently after a battle with cancer. She joined John Hesterman and yours truly in the studio briefly as a member of TRACE. Rest In Pease, Tehani.

In my latest version I used Zener diodes with a higher forward voltage and didn't to attenuate as much. Zener diodes are tricky to work with so in a future version i might try using LED's....stay tuned
While down with sinus surgery, took the time to upgrade a piece of gear I built in 1995. The LA2 was the first piece of outboard gear I built for Lamont Audio. I will be up grading the the opto isolators from United Audio to Kenetek fast and slow units. While its on the bench i''m making a few modifications. In the original design I direct coupled the White follower. While that saved some parts and might have sounded marginally better I found the circuit was very particular about the brand of tube that would work in it, so I…
