Recorded in Conway Recording Studios, a significant part of Maroon 5’s Overexposed album was crafted using signal processing equipment from Chandler Limited.
LA-based Noah ‘Mailbox’ Passovoy served as producer on five tracks and engineer on all tracks of the band’s latest recording. Passovoy relies on products like the LTD-1 EQ/Pre Amp and the TG2 Pre Amp/DI from Chandler.
“The TG2 has really become a ‘go-to’ pre amp for me,” Passovoy reports. “I love all the warmth and body I can get out of it, while the top-end is really open and bright – without ever sounding too thin or brittle. That combination of sonic attributes makes this the perfect mic pre for tracking vocals. I really don’t have to do a lot more than plug a mic into the TG2 to get the sound I’m looking for. Beyond that, I love the TG2’s summing option. Being able to pre-mix a Royer and a Shure SM57 on a guitar cabinet is really helpful.
“The LTD-1 is simply the best modern 1073 I’ve heard,” he said. “I love it on guitars, and the added flexibility of the EQ section makes it great when I need an EQ for mixing. It’s just got that classic sound.”
