Recordingography

The recordings we reference when we study recording.

The goal is to sketch out key moments when recording craft contributed notably to the final sound.  Each entry could fit on a postcard – short and sweet and to the point.  We needn’t obsess with exactly how they did it; we just want some ideas for how we might do something similar at our studio.  Explore your own variations, inspired by these recordings.

First Plate Reverb

1957: EMT 140 is released by Elektromesstechnik ("Electrical Measuring Technology") of Germany. A large, thin metal sheet is caused to vibrate by a moving coil transducer placed near the center of the plate. A bending wave propagates through the plate, reflecting off the edges, developing a complex pattern of reflections across the two dimensions of the plate. Not measured in CPU usage or rack spaces, this plate reverb weights several hundred pounds and is almost 4 feet high by 8 feet long.
