Kazbar Systems Studio Equipment Retail

Music producer, songwriter and remixer Jake Gosling, best known for his collaboration with artists such as Ed Sheeran and Wiley, has just bought himself an Audient ASP880 mic preamplifer, which he is using in his Surrey-based Sticky Studios.

Supplied by high end studio sales company Kazbar Systems, Jake couldn’t be more satisfied. “Kazbar Systems lent me the ASP880 as we needed extra mic pres for our DAW. I was instantly impressed with how dynamic and punchy the pres sounded and we’ve been equally impressed with how well the instrument inputs perform when used with our synths. I would highly recommend the ASP880 to prospective musicians.”

Already a fan of vintage analogue, Jake has built Sticky Studios around his old DDA console (another product developed by Audient designer, David Dearden) so it seems perfectly natural to add the Audient ASP008 mic pre to his kit-list. With eight channels of premium mic preamplifier housed in a compact 1U of rack, ASP880 bypasses the mic pres and converters in the multi channel interface to bring warmth, clarity and punch to every recording.

Most recently Jake has co-produced Paloma Faith‘s album “Fall from Grace” alongside Nellee Hooper. He has also released a number of official remixes under the alias ‘Sketch Iz Dead‘ for Lady Gaga, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Kerri Hilson, Wale and Far East Movement and has played a pivotal role in developing a number of new artists. Ed Sheeran, ‘discovered’ by Jake when Ed was just 15 is counted among these, and has truly proved himself when his album ‘+’ went triple platinum (over 900,000 sales) in January of this year.
