Adventures With UA OX Part 2: Recording Songs At Real World Studios

October 5, 2018

This is the audio from our video plublished here: https://youtu.be/iP-5yl6GVFQ

Late in 2017, we had the great pleasure of spending a day at Real World Studios. Check it out http://realworldstudios.com/
Universal Audio’s OX Amp Top Box was being released, so we thought it would be fun to try it in a proper musical situation. Here is the first video: https://youtu.be/L7VaqEPwvgM

This episode is the long-awaited Part 2, where we reflect on the day, the finished tracks and our experiences with OX - timings below.

HUGE thanks…
- Patrick and Fraser from Real World for their time, skill and Fonzy-cool.
- Chris and Tom from Universal Audio who engineered; Tom produced and mixed the tracks, including the vocal sessions. Hero!
- Our wonderful drummer, Dougie Mussard
- Simon Whitehead for his massive capacity for indulging our egos.
- Tim Oliver and everybody else at Real World
- Jamie Masters at Echo Studios
- Universal Audio https://www.uaudio.com/

We’ve released the tracks via iTunes and Amazon – search 'That Pedal Show Band'. Our Patreon Patrons will receive a free download link.
