I love this series of simple video interviews with Rupert Neve from Rupert Neve Designs. Here he discusses creating his first transistor-based mixer.
For those that couldn't make it, we'd like to report that the Tape Op Party held during SXSW at the Beauty Bar on March 19th, 2010 was a freaking blast. We had a wonderful set by the band Quasi, DJ sets by Ian McLagan, Rebecca Gates, Richard Barone and myself, many amazing free prize giveaways, lots of free drinks and plenty of camaraderie. Tape Op's fabulous ad rep, Laura Thurmond, got this event together in fine style, with many thanks to our sponsors (see below), to Crow and his crew for watching the door, Celeste Cleary for photos (more here), and to the Beauty Bar staff who are true pros. And thanks to all the cool recordists and musicians that dropped in for all the fun!
