Hi Kittens, I'm Sylvia Massy. Mee-frickin-oww!

Hey All,

Sylvia here, just returning to earth from the frozen planet called Toronto, in the galaxy of Canadia-eh. Great session, mixing on a lovely SSL Duality at Phase One Studios. Even though it plugs in a regular wall outlet (so pedestrian) I think I actually love that board!

Mmmm, a bit wiped out after the long flight, but thankfully I'm absolutely STOKED to get to do this Q&A here with all you like-minded gear critters! I'll answer a few tonight before I put myself to bed and count wooly analog pre-amps until I fall asleep.

So then, see ya' all in the morning, eh? I mean, right?

Hey Sykvia,

Great to have you here!

Funny you should talk about the Duality, as I was just curious about that board. Many people still seem to prefer older series like the 4K for heavier, rock stuff. But you, apparently, are loving the board? So for instance if you had the money to buy an SSL 4K or a Duality, would you pick the Duality over the 4K? The Duality probably doesn't have that classic 4K crunch as much , but it's modern, less power consuming, and not as prone to give up on you in a long time. What are some things you love about the Duality, and what are you missing? Can be sound-wise as well of course. Also, have you every worked on an AWS?

Enjoy your stay!
Regards

Sylvia,

Sorry I missed your "grand opening" here at GS......... I knew your were a gear freak - but didn't realize you were a gearslutz as well......

I guess I should come out of the construction cave a little more often to see what's happening in the rest of this world........

Welcome and enjoy..........

Rod

From one Syl to another (i'm a Syl too - a Mr Sylvester from the land down under) - I just wanna high five you for your participation. You're living the dream, and i'm hanging off every word you say! Very few of us get to dwell in the pinnacle of talent you've experienced, but I live in vicarious envy of your skills.

Syl's rule!!!

Montréal here, in the snow, the SSL Duality is too cold for our winter...Studio 270 bought an API Legacy to keep us warm

Greetings from the frozen north: you are certainly correct, its been one of the coldest winters in the GTA - ever! Speaking as an ex-pat Yukoner, this has been the toughest, longest winter to date in this area...

In any case, a warm welcome here at GS - your earlier post in "What do you do as a Producer" thread stands amongst the most informative and spot-on replies from any guest moderator to date on GS. Bravo.

I look forward to any and all other insights you provide during your tenure here.

cheers,

Sylvia, you have obviously taken a lot of time to seriously answer our questions. Many producers in the spotlight don't seem to have / make the time to provide serious explanations. You seem to have carefully and thoughtfully focused on every topic thrown at you. We all really appreciate this so much.

Thanks for hanging out w/ us.
