We started to work on this guitar oriented record during the spring of 2006. Our idea was to release an album, working in the same way as the old productions of 70' and 80' era, following a full analog process for recording and mixing. It's now available "In my world" the album of the musician, arranger, producer Marco Iacobini "I'm very thankful to have had the opportunity to remaster this album which I particularly tied up, working with the incredible Forward Studios, in It's anechoic room drawn by the great engineer Francis Manzella, we mastered the album in DSD format PACM 96kHz, 24bit.
All tracks were recorded on the legendary Neve 88R analog console. No plug-ins, but only real gear as: a lot of preamps, equalizers, compressors, analog and digital effects.
Since we should have recorded some different tracks for each instrument, working on a considerable number of overdubs, we haven't been able to record everything, using the incredible analog tape machine Studer A827 - 24 tracks, so after careful consideration, we took the decision to work in the hybrid way, recording our project on Pro Tools, working in high quality audio format: 96 kHz - 24 bit.
The next step was to mix everything on the amazing analog console SSL 9000J connected directly to the analog tape machine Studer A80 - 1/2 inch. "The first version of the mastering was made by the mastering guru Bernie Grundman, sending to him the analog tapes of the final mix at his studio in Hollywood, CA.”
