Justin Timberlake - which console?

I find the new Timberlake CD absolutely compelling sonically - it has a good dynamic range, sound enormous, in your face, big and round. Would you sophisticated engineers share with me some of the intricates of this album? I much appreciate your insights.

cheers

Didn't he do his first solo album at Hit Factory?

I don't know that for sure...just heard it somewhere.

I know the stuff Dave Pensado did was at the Enterprise Studio C on the SSL 9000J.

I think the stuff Jimmy Douglas did was at Criteria with the Neve down there.

I believe they used an Ibrahim Pegasus 2000...designed by a conservative Iranian military think tank to remove all of the sonic and musical "impurities" usually associated with Soul or Rhythm and Blues; degenerate forms of music originated by African American peasants and their only slightly higher caste caucasian exploiters in the late 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s. These recordings generally featured exciting and/or meaningful songs, inspired ensemble-style session "players"... and a recording and mixing approach that featured dynamics, a "listenable" top end, aggressive yet detailed and substantial midrange, and "downtown" bass.

the Pegasus 2000 effectively removes all of these vain anomalies that are unpleasing to God and were once associated with most of the "professional" recordings that came from the United States, or the Great Satan if you will. I am pretty sure that Team Timberlake used one of these consoles.

Well, I wish not to argue about taste - I don't see today's pop as the evil of all music. Whoever worked on this stuff knew what they were doing, and personally I would like to learn from them.

Just don't forget that it also went through a mastering stage.

He also rode a unicorn for transportation to and from the studio.

My experience with the 2000S (not the original 2000) at the Kevakian Studios in Isfahan in the mid-90s was not all that pleasant. This was a console built by Mr. Ibrahim himself. To begin with, the board's frequency response was extremely narrow, running somewhere between 300Hz and 7500Hz. According to Afshar Pandahari, my engineer on the project (and a friend of Mr. Ibrahim), the board was intentionally designed with truncated low and high ends, so as to bypass "the sex zones." In this regard, I must say it succeeded magnificently.
