…the most important component in any serious Pro Tools studio…
For the listening test, I recalled a mix I’d just sent off to Bob Ludwig for mastering. I heard the difference with the new clock almost immediately, and kept asking to switch back and forth between the Antelope and my old Big Ben. Within two minutes, I felt this hilarious combination of excitement to hear my music sounding at least 25% better forever from that point on, but also this tingly weird disappointment that all my prior work hadn’t used this clocking system! I sent Bob Ludwig the same mix but this time with the new clocking setup. He liked it better and mastered the song again, replacing the first version.
You have to hear the difference. It’s not subtle. Probably the most important component in any serious Pro Tools studio, because it makes everything sound much better and alive.
