HEDD Type 30 Studio Monitors
The HEDD Type 30 is an exceptional midfield monitor that will satisfy all your professional studio needs and desires. Whether as a full range audio monitor in an elegant studio space or in broadcasting contexts, this 3-way-system based monitor is an ideal player in the most diverse fields of application. The impressive technological facts alone speak for themselves: two horizontally aligned 7”-woofers, 4”-midrange woofer, the HEDD Air Motion Transformer tweeter, and nothing less than 4×300 watts amplification create an ultra-wide frequency range from 30Hz to 50khz. In the course of the Type 30’s development, the acoustic accuracy that this constellation of components translates into has fascinated us: in addition to being super solid and having an extremely high fidelity in the bass and mid range reproduction, the HEDD AMT produces vivid and uncolored high frequency material. Let us assure you: this is one fine piece of gear.
As our two smaller studio monitors, the Type 30 offers XLR and RCA connections as well as a free input-card system that can receive the HEDD Bridge modules that we also offer. These modules are designed to read Dante, Ravenna Network / AES67 protocols as well as AES3/EBU.

Audient – Heritage of Long Island Recording Company
The studios of Long Island Recording serve the music and show business community for the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky, and as of January this year, they do so with the help of an Audient ASP8024 Heritage Edition console. Comprising a commercial studio as well as the only licensed audio engineering school in the Kentucky region, Lexington School for Recording Arts, the whole outfit is overseen by owner and president, Wil Freebody.
“THERE IS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT TOUCHING A KNOB AND BEING DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO THE SOUND SOURCE”
“The students – and staff – love it,” says Freebody of his new analogue recording console. “There is just something about touching a knob and being directly connected to the sound source as opposed to manipulating the sound on a computer screen. Technology is great and convenient but we sometimes forget what it’s like to record the sound of a real mic, on a real drum, played by a real drummer, through a real compressor, then changing the sound with knobs on the Heritage.”
Freebody should know, as he’s been in the music production business for over four decades now, with projects for Disney, TBS, Comedy Central and NBC Today Show on his resumé, as well as three-time Grammy award winner, Mack Rice (Mustang Sally, Respect Yourself & 24-7 Man) and renowned blues artist, Tee Dee Young on his client list. He can also be credited with the hundreds of Lexington School for Recording Arts graduates working in the field as a direct result of his endeavours.
The British console is installed in the main control room, a 22 x 32ft user-friendly room with an 11ft ceiling; the live room is 23ft high, a direct throwback to previous incarnation as a warehouse. “The Heritage is mostly used for the third stage of the students’ schooling, when they learn how to set up and run a ‘full band’ recording session, which includes setting up the microphones, patching compressors into the signal path (both pre and post DAW), getting input levels, setting up CUE mixes, and lastly, recording the band and any overdubs or fixes that might be involved in the process. This is usually a ‘solo’ part of the course, meaning that there is only one student in the studio, so they really get a personal hands-on learning approach with the ASP8024-HE.
“…WE DECIDED IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR OUR STUDENTS TO LEARN THE BASICS OF SOUND AND SIGNAL FLOW ON A TRADITIONAL ANALOGUE CONSOLE”
“Later in the school year, the students are divided into groups and are required to chart, play, record, mix, master, and market a song as part of learning the whole production side of recording. For the recording and mixing of this project, the students come back into the Heritage room and work their own session.
“We like to involve the students that are in the later stages of their courses as assistants for the ‘real world’ sessions if their schedules will allow, too. Nothing is better than the experience of working an actual recording date!” adds Freebody.
It was the growing program at the School that prompted the studios’ upgrade. “Most of the advice we received was steering us toward preamps and some type of controller, but we decided it was important for our students to learn the basics of sound and signal flow on a traditional analogue console,” he explains. “We continue to use Pro Tools HD but added an array of outboard gear to accent the Heritage, such as tube compressors like the LA 2a, a couple of 1176s, and two distressors. We teach WAVES plug-ins but we are constantly looking to add additional plug-in tools.”
When asked what his greatest accomplishment is, Wil will always respond, “My strength is in my team. I already have in place the next generation of professionals to carry the school forward.” Here’s to Wil Freebody, Long Island Recording Company and its new Heritage continuing to do just that.
The All New HEDD Type 20 Studio Monitor
HEDD, the new company founded by speaker designer Klaus Heinz, has been demonstrating their brand new studio monitor at Musikmesse. The HEDD Type 20 is a fully-fledged three-way-system stuffed into a small footprint cabinet. Essentially, the Type 20 is much like the company’s Type 30 mid-field monitor, but with only one 7-inch driver instead of two. This reduces the maximum SPL by a significant 6dB, but still means there’s more than enough level for near-field or near/mid-field work.
The Type 20 is based around a strong, rubber-coated cabinet, that incorporates HEDD’s own Honeycomb-sandwich woofers (7-inch bass / 4-inch mid- range) and the HEDD Air Motion Transformer tweeter for accurate high-frequency reproduction. Three 300W Class-D ICEpower modules work in the amp section of these analogue speakers. With the Type 20, HEDD were aiming for clarity in the midrange, better dynamics and an increased three-dimensionality across its sound stage. It boasts a usable frequency response 50kHz all the way down to 32Hz.
The Type 20 also incorporates the versatile ‘HEDD Bridge’ system. Besides standard analogue connections (XLR/RCA), the speaker can be equipped with optional AES3/AES EBU, Dante or Ravenna /AES67 cards for Audio- over-IP integration. This makes them suitable for in IP-based recording and mastering studios but also in more complex multi-channel environments such as Dolby Atmos, Auro 3D, broadcast or live concerts, where multiple separate loudspeakers have to be administrated and fed with individual high-resolution audio streams.

The Ventris Reverb: A Progress Report
Ventris Update: Bob and Jesse have been working overtime on getting Ventris to market. As is our usual experience, we encountered way too many new and cool sounds recently that we just had to get into the product. Roger is trying to draw a line in the sand to say that’s enough, but it’s hard to say no to a cool new sound! Right now we are looking at late July or early August. We should have some new videos with sounds from the lab soon. Stay tuned.
