What is it about UA’s 6176?September 13, 2018
Recording enthusiast and music lovers alike have developed an appetite for that classic vintage sound. Globally respected producer/engineer Rick Ruben has proven time and again the need for its preservation. While working on a project of the late great Johnny Cash;he would dive into his bag of goodies once again.
Some of the songs were originally recorded using trusted tools such as the U87 mic and the 6176 preamp. Rick and his recording team ran these tracks through a Neeve console before eventually tracking them on Pro Tools.
