Adventures With UA OX Part 2: Dan & Mick Record Songs At Real World Studios! – That Pedal Show

Published on Oct 5, 2018
Duration:
57:14:00

Late in 2017, we had the great pleasure of spending a day at Real World Studios. 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's 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.

HUGE thanks…
- Patrick and Fraser from Real World for their time, skill and super 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 at Real World
- Jamie Masters at Echo Studios
