Vance Powell Engineer. The White Stripes, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, Wanda Jackson…
Interview with Rich Williams for Burl Audio 2011:
Rich Williams: We love what you guys are doing, you and Jack. We love the Dead Weather, the Raconteurs, and we love all the other side projects you’re doing, and the fact that you’re all analog and vinyl. We love it. So I’d like to ask about the philosophy of what you’re doing. There seems to be a lot of excitement about your work. How are you guys keeping this excitement and momentum going in a music world that seems to be stagnant right now?
Vance Powell: Jack wants people to be excited about the concept of owning music. He remembers what it was like to wait for a record, then buy it at a record store the day it came out, and then listen to this creation. You’re looking at the cover and there’s this physical, tangible thing. Listening to music isn’t tangible, it’s an intangible. It’s just out in space in between your ears, basically. But owning it, holding the vinyl, holding the sleeve, holding it in your hand and seeing the craft work that went into it, that’s a big part of it. I think that’s what Jack is looking for. You know, music that’s interesting to people, and then to be able to keep that tangible part of it, that’s important…

"I used the B-1s on practically every guitar track on the record. they rule! Didn't have to add any midrange or anything when I used them with royer 122s. Put a BURL Audio B1 mic pre, a B2 Bomber A/D converter and a ribbon mic in front of a guitar amp, and the mid range is so good it'll make you cry!".

Vient de finir de mixer "Tha Carter IV" de Lil Wayne utilisant le convertisseur BURL Audio B2 Bomber ADC. L'album a été vendu à 960 000 copies, durant sa première semaine de sortie et a établi un nouveau record des ventes de 300 000 albums sur iTunes.
Strange Weather Brooklyn NYC Marc Alan Goodman du Studio Strange Weather basé à Brooklyn NYC, opte pour le Burl Audio Mothership B80 24 entrées / 32 sorties. "When we brought the Burl in to Strange Weather we put it up against our apogees with a isochrone ocx clock. We did a number of different tests, some blind and some not, and we all agreed the differences were not subtle. Sometimes the Burl sounded like it had more bass, sometimes less. Sometimes it sounded brighter, and sometimes it sounded a little darker. But no matter what the difference was, it always sounded better.
We also experimented with using the OCX clock with the Burl, but we gave up very quickly after some unimpressive results. Previously I'd been a big fan of the Antelope atomic clock, and I'd still be interested in hearing how it sounds with this rig. I know people have plenty of conceptual issues with the thing, but in my experiences using it with a 192 the differences were, once again, not very subtle. However the Burls themselves put a big dent in my budget (we're expanding it to 32i/48o when we move in the next few months).

Fred Carrayol de Mercredi 9 "Arrivée du BURL B80 Mothership avec les BAD4 et BDA8 aux Studios Mercredi9, super convertisseurs Pro Tools HD ... Sévèrement Burly la machine....
Après l'essai d'un grand nombre de convertisseurs pour Pro Tools, notre choix s'est arrêté sur le Burl.....tous les Blind Tests ont été en faveur de cette fabuleuse machine.....Punch, basses plus profondes, hauts plus définis et mediums plus riches....Et la possibilité de saturer la machine en entrée... Bref, le souvenir de la bande analogique ... Sûrement la pièce maitresse du studio."

Eastwest Studios - Hollywood CA Eastwest Studios in Hollywood CA is ground zero for many records that are on rotation at Burl headquarters. The first stop on the "Mothership Annihilation Tour" in 2011 was a comparison between the Digidesign 192s and the Burl B80 Mothership in Studio 1. Recently, Eddie Kramer brought his Mothership into Studio 2 to record a band "Olio". Currently Eddie is also working on a record with Robert Randolph, which has been recorded and mixed using the Mothership. Guests on this record include Buddy Guy, Santana and others. "From Frank Sinatra to the Rolling Stones, Studio 1 has produced some of the most celebrated albums in music history. Spanning over 61,000 cubic feet with a vibrant sound that’s unparalleled, Studio 1 is perfect for any session - from single voice to 70-piece symphonic orchestra." "Simply put, Studio 2 is one of the best rock recording rooms in the world. Its high ceilings and mid-ambience provide a tight punchy sound constantly sought after by top producers like Rick Rubin. The studio has an additional drum isolation booth, a vocal isolation booth, and a Yamaha C7 grand piano that has been used on many rock albums. Originally the site of classic television series (The Monkees, The Partridge Family), the studio later evolved to serve the needs of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and countless other artists. The Mamas and the Pappas and The Beach boys also did records here. Studio 1 features an 80 channel Neve 8078 Console, the largest in the world, which was originally commissioned for Michael Jackson's best-selling album, Thriller. Each room is equipped with a DB Technologies db4496 A/D-D/A Converter and ATC house monitors along with NS10/ProAc speakers and are set up with Pro tools HD. Studer 827, Ampex ATR124, Ampex ATR102, Studer J-37, Studer C-37 Analog recorders are available on request. http://www.eastwest-studios.com/studio-two
"I tried the Lavry ADC and the Burl B2 ADC. That thing is a game changer! I love the character it gave to the song, good solid low end and nice highs where the vox and snare were highilghted, also seemed very wide..." Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Raekwon, Eminem, 50 Cent, Nas, Mary J. Blige, Busta Rymes...
