Talking the new Record Plant Remote Digital - 96 tracks at 96k!

I am very happy to announce that, after a year of hard work and more than a few gallons of blood, sweat and tears - my good friend Kooster McAllister has completed his new digital truck, and it's a beauty.

He'll be premiering it at the AES Show in New York October 5-8th, alongside the Wave Distribution booth. If you're planning on attending AES, please come by booth 162 and have a look. Until then, I've posted some photos and details here:

Of course, the 56-input API equipped analog truck still roams the streets, having just recently come off the Nashville Star TV season broadcast, and the Black Sabbath Heaven and Hell show at New York's Radio City Music Hall, which coincidentally was just released on DVD and CD (http://www.rhino.com/store/ProductDe...?Number=243708)

Congratulations Kooster!! See you at AES.

In honor of that show being recorded at New York's Radio City Music Hall, Kooster will feature the original multitrack recording of that show in the truck at AES.

Why DM2K

Hi all Kooster here
The choice of the DM2K was really quite simple for many reasons.
A Few of them are:
1 Extremely Reliable.
Having a console you can count on is a must. The DM2K’s that I own have never crashed on me and talking with other owners I hear the same from them. Another feature is if there is a power outage the console will wake back up exactly where it was. No need to recall the project. Also the boot time is under a minute.

2 The console is very powerful.
Don’t let the small size fool you. This console is DA Bomb!! When you dig into all that the console offers, it is quite remarkable.

3 Compatibility
I know of at least 5 location recording companies that have chosen this console not to mention engineers like Elliot Scheiner, Ed Cherney Paul Sandweiss, and Gary Paczosa all have them in their studios. Take a listen to any of the Alison Kraus cd’s that Gary has done and you will see how great they sound too. Another reason is that most of the touring company’s these days travel with either PM1D or PM5D consoles which are compatible with the 2K. If a FOH engineer is doing the mix he can just load his SIM card into the 2K and is off and running with all his presets.

These are just a few of the reasons I chose the DM2K as the mixing platform for my new truck. Please stop by and see us at the AES and check it out for your self.

26 years later -finally!!!

Two weeks from today the first "Big Deal" solo flight Record Plant sent Kooster, Peter Hefter, Bob Hughes, and I out on our own to do with the White Truck (now Kooster's Analog Truck) will FINALLY be coming out on DVD. Queen live at the Montreal Forum. I recall us doing a pretty good job and making Freddie and Brian happy. And for about 5 minutes on the 29th., I'll be a "cool" dad with my kids. I'm sure we'll have a copy to play in the truck in surround. Come by and see how we were recording 26 years ago.

Yo Kooster

Was that you and your new rig at The Highline Ballroom this week? As you know, I live in Chelsea and I was out walking the dog...

You were incognito! I would have said hello.

All the best with the new system! I'll check you out at AES.

Best

Yeah that was us. I was recording James Blunt at the High Line Ballroom. The truck is incognito as of now and I sort of like it that way. I probably will put a logo on it eventually. What I really love is no more weigh stations on the hiway and the ability to use the GSP for trips to Atlantic City.

Kooster, your new truck looks great! I built a similar (but much smaller) truck down here in Philadelphia last year, I know first hand how much time and energy you must have into this new rig.

I'm looking forward to meeting you at AES and seeing the new truck.

So, yeah - Kooster had a photog come out and shoot some nice pics, with proper lighting and long exposure times.

So of course I had to add 'em to my page. Here's the link to page two:

Please come see us at Booth 162/space T-2 at the AES next week - right next to the Gearslutz Lounge!

I'm curious, do you tow a trailer? or have a cargo area in the back? for your stage racks, cables, etc.

Kooster...I'm thinking that maybe I should offer you a spot in my driveway to park that ol' white analog truck. I could look after it. Paulie would be close by. Just trying to be helpful. The new digs look great.!!

Peace, love and soul,

Ron
