Adam Gonsalves

Mastering Engineer

“One of the best features of the LIAISON is the monitor outs…you can monitor the signal at four points in the chain: before and after Bus A and B. The usefulness of this feature is huge, and Dangerous deserves major props for including it!”

Al Pryor and Todd Whitelock of Mack Avenue Records – Capturing Grammy-Winning Jazz

July has brought us a lot – new hardware, software, free courses, and of course, the red white and blue. But before the month wraps, one of blue’s cousins, jazz will be joining us with Todd Whitelock and Al Pryor .

Alan Evans

Producer, Musician, Engineer

“With the SOURCE as my D-to-A, I۪m hearing my mixes EXACTLY the way they came off the console, and because of the variety of inputs and routing possibilities I can monitor before or after my recording A-to-D converter.”

Alberto Rizzo Schettino

“The Dangerous LIAISON fels like engaging light-speed for my workflow..and make no mistake: workflow IS sound. The sheer speed at which you can do critical comparisons of entire signal chains does have a direct and positive impact how your music will sound.”

Allen Farmelo

Producer/Engineer

“I just love listening to sounds through them for long stretches. I’m fascinated with three- dimensionality and space in recordings, and with the CONVERTS, I am hearing convincing dimensionality.”

Allen Farmelo

Producer/Engineer

“As far as I can tell (and I’ve really looked and listened), there are very few stereo units that will sound as good as the CONVERT-2, and (I will go on record here) no multichannel converters that can top the CONVERT-8.”

Allen Farmelo

Producer/Engineer

“The low end is not just ‘phat’ or whatever the latest adjective is — it takes on boulder-like qualities. At slow tempos, I can see what I have come to call ‘sonic asteroids’ in orbit as bass sounds enter the room. The mids are not… READ MORE Allen Farmelo

Allen Farmelo

Producer, Engineer

“When I plugged in the Dangerous Music CONVERT-8, I finally sat back and thought that digital pro-audio might have finally arrived. After hours and hours, and then days and now weeks of listening to the same material, it still sounds beautiful.”

Antoine “Chab” Chabert

Mastering Engineer

“The LIAISON is really important – I can do a lot of combinations of chaining gear and I am able to work a lot faster. Before the LIAISON [I had to] switch the patchbay and compare the sounds. Now I am 20-times faster than before,… READ MORE Antoine “Chab” Chabert

Are the cut frequencies always in my signal path- even in bypass?

The frequency cut filters feature individual relay bypasses. Relays remove the filters entirely from the signal path until desired, for true A/B comparisons, but it is a good idea to leave cuts engaged most of the time, as discussed above.

Arnold D’Souza

Engineer

“The headphone amp is so crisp and detailed. I recorded one of my regular artists through it and the D-BOX helped get him to the emotion quicker than ever. It blew him away!”

Barry Rudolph

Mix Magazine

“Mixing down a stereo pair [on the 2-BUS]…you’ll have more headroom and dynamic range, a wider stereo spread and clearer sound…than mixing inside Pro Tools.”

Barry Rudolph

Mix Magazine

“With its small size, transparent sound, elegant design, simple hookup, D-BOX is packed with everything you need for studio or mobile applications.”

Bob Power

“So happy with the LIAISON. Being able to switch gear in and out from the listening position without leaning over a patch bay is fantastic. After sitting in this chair for so many years, it actually improves my mixing ergonomics considerably.”

Bob Power

Mastering Engineer

“Comparing different chains of outboard gear with the touch of a single button is a total win.”

Brian J Anthony

Engineer/Studio Owner

I”t’s been TWO years and the ST has been ROCK solid with NO glitches, crackles, hiccups, etc. I’ve never been more pleased. It just WORKS! Thanks for making such a reliable unit.”

Brian J Anthony

Engineer/Studio Owner

“Woah! The stereo image is definitely wider than I’ve ever heard here in the control room. And I’m catching details I never have before in songs I’ve heard a million times.”

Can I adjust the crossover / Low Pass filter?

Technically this is a Low Pass Filter, not a crossover, because it simply removes the midrange frequencies and above from the sub, without removing the low frequencies from the main speakers. This allows full range monitoring from the mains with or without the sub extension.… READ MORE Can I adjust the crossover / Low Pass filter?

Both switches will flash alternately indicating that the D-Box is… READ MORE Can I monitor all 4 sources (SUM, ANALOG, DAW, CD) simultaneously?

Chris Athens

Mastering Engineer

“I don’t need a new converter, but I’m damn sure gonna buy this one. Economy, utility, innovation, and excellence. Designed and built by professional engineers for professional engineers.”

Chris Bialuski

President, Recording.org

“The MONITOR ST is the single most valued piece of gear I have ever owned. It’s a giant asset to my studio. When I got that, it all started making sense.”

Chris Blackwell

Drummer/Composer

“The PARALIMIT and X-FORMER appear to be magic knobs. Special mention goes to the PARALIMIT because it does that lovely thing of bringing up the general ambience without slamming the track, something I particularly love on drums.”

Chris Tabron

Producer/Mixer

“With the 2-BUS+ I’m able to work at the speed my clients have come to expect, but also push quite a bit harder into the analog domain the way I like.”

Chris Tabron

Producer/Mixer

“The harmonic and transformer flavors are great options to have and the parallel limiter is a genius idea.”

Claude Zdanow

“Stadium Red Engineer Ariel Borujow’s [mix] chain is: out to the 2-BUS LT, to an SSL compressor, then to the BAX EQ. He swears by it, he won۪t mix any other way.”
