Yamaha CL Nuendo Live Captures Clarke Recording
January 11, 2017
Legendary Jazz Artist Records Latest Album Live on Yamaha Console
Four-time Grammy Award winner Stanley Clarke is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated acoustic and electric bass players in the world. What’s more, he is equally gifted as a recording artist, performer, conductor, arranger, producer, and film score composer. A true pioneer in jazz and jazz-fusion, Clarke is particularly known for his ferocious bass dexterity and has attained “living legend” status during his over 40+-year career.
Out on tour recording promotional material for Clarke’s latest yet-to-be-named album which was mixed live during several dates this past December, front of house engineer, Travis Rogers, used a Yamaha CL1 Digital Audio Console to mix and record via the console’s Nuendo Live software for the upcoming album due for release later this year.
“I love the way the Yamaha CL’s new preamps sound, the premium plug-ins, and the added EQs, states Rogers. That being said, recording on the desk is easy using Nuendo Live. I'm able to record 72 tracks of audio using the software along with a Dante virtual sound card. The Yamaha CL1 may be the smallest one of the CL family, however, it lacks nothing in terms of the quality of sound you get from a Yamaha console.”
Rogers mixed Clarke and his band who features Cameron Graves on keyboards, Beka Gochiashvili on Piano, and Mike Mitchell on drums.
