Hello Paul,

Can you illuminate us with any details on the hardware you use in the "Stubb-U-Sonic" mastering chain?  I am particularly curious about the equalization hardware you may employ to contour the final TP release.  Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Sam,

The signal chain may well be different for different source tapes--whatever it needs and no more, that's my philosophy.

In those cases where frequency response shaping is needed, I have used the E.A.R. 822 and 823 EQ's, and maybe the E.A.R. 825.

Whatever I choose to use in a given case, it is all direct connected, no patch bays. I don't run the signal through a console (though I have one,) not even a master fader, and anything not in use on a given song is not merely put in bypass mode, it is not even in the chain.

The Stubb-U-Sonic process is less about specific gear, and more about attitude and approach.
