Can Music Really Change the World? by Craig Anderton It may sound hopeles...
Endless Analog announces that it has appointed KMR Audio as its U.K. dealer for its
CLASP (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor), the critically acclaimed pro audio
product that invisibly merges real analog tape with Pro Tools and other DAWs. The
system has been on demonstration since mid-February in KMR's dedicated listening
room at the companys London headquarters. CLASPs inventor Chris Estes and his team
will be in the U.K. this spring to help hold demonstrations at area recording studios.
Interested studios should contact KMR as soon as possible, as demonstrations are
limited and will be booked on a first-come-first-served basis.
KMR Sales Manager Stefan Pope exclaimed, CLASP is probably the most exciting thing
to happen to the recording industry for ten years. It means that the analog tape
sound we all love is now available to everyone without sacrificing time or
flexibility! When tape-based recording was largely replaced by DAWs, it left a sonic
void that plug-ins have not been able to fill, hence the trend for returning to
analog tape for some parts of the recording process. CLASP is tape at digital speed.
It routes all audio to tape then lines it up with sample accuracy in the DAW in real
time. All the functionality of the DAW remains, but your computer will sound like
your tape machine. Youll spend more time recording, and no time waiting for
transfers, Lynx boxes or SMPTE. Even better, tape costs are low. A single reel can
last up to 10,000 hours!
KMR Managing Director Keith Malin added, We are honored to be working with such an
exciting, innovative company as Endless Analog!
Estes, also the President and Founder of Endless Analog, stated, We are very excited
to be partnering with KMR in the U.K., and I am looking forward to our studio tour
in the spring. With Britains venerable history in recording and audio production, it
is fitting that the U.K. should take a particular interest in CLASP. So many classic
recordings were done using analog tape machines, and CLASP truly bridges the concept
of recording using analog tape with the convenience and efficiency of digital
