If you have not experienced CLASP for yourself, prepare to be amazed. It is a system that is almost impossible to get your head around in theory but, when seen in use, it becomes surprising simple in operation.

EARS is excited to invite Chris Estes, inventor of the CLASP system to Chicago for a thorough hands-on demonstration at CRC with an IN-STUDIO LIVE BAND. We will be tracking a song from scratch, building tracks from the ground up, all through the CLASP, a Studer A800 24-track analog recorder, and a Neve VR 72 input console.

When tape-based recording was largely replaced by DAWs, it left a sonic void that plugins have not been able to fill. CLASP is tape at digital speed. CLASP routes all audio to tape then lines it up with sample accuracy in the DAW in real time. CLASP integrates the tape machine into the modern DAW workflow, making the most of both platforms. All functionality of the DAW remains, but your computer sounds like your tape machine. No more waiting for transfers, Lynx boxes or SMPTE. Switch tape speeds to get different tones all within the same project ... track drums at 15ips, bass at 7.5 and vocals at 30, for example.

CRC will also be conducting brief tours of their fabulous multi-complex studio operation, inviting EARS attendees to visit some of their other post rooms as well.

Many thanks to CRC general manager (and fellow EARS member) Chris Shepard for once again opening CRC to EARS and a very special thanks to Chris Estes for joining us for this auspicious event.
