Video: Electronaut at the Intersection of Analog and Digital

Since the advent of early, refrigerator-sized digital multitrack recorders in the late 1970s, the pro audio world has debated whether the theoretical perfection, transparency and convenience of digital recording is truly a sonic step forward from the not-all-that-antiquated analog technologies which date back several decades.

In this first installment of "At the Intersection of Analog and Digital," Chicago film company One Tree Forest points the spotlight at the Electronaut Company's resident genius Rob Roy M. Campbell as he assembles and tests the venerable M97 tube limiter.

This particular piece of gear is a prime example of how today's electrical engineers can use sophisticated digital measurement instruments and software to take a behemoth 50-year-old design and objectively improve upon its foundation electronically, mechanically, and sonically.

The Electronaut M97 is built-to-order, available direct from the man himself on the Electronaut Reverb shop.
