LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – JULY 2010: TransAudio Group, boutique distributor of the recording industry’s best-of-the-best equipment, is teaming up with Sweetwater Sound Chicago, the industry’s leading customer service-oriented retailer, to co-sponsor an evening with Geoff Daking, renowned drummer, sound engineer, and analog equipment designer. The Engineering and Recording Society (EARS) is organizing the event, which will take place at the Chicago Recording Company (CRC), 232 East Ohio Street in Chicago between 6:00pm and 9:00pm on Tuesday, July 27, 2010. Light refreshments will be served.

Daking will speak about the three phases of his career; any one of which would be enough to satisfy the requirements for a life well lived. He was the drummer for multi-platinum psychedelic rock outfit Blues Magoos in the late 1960s, a band that opened along with The Who for Herman’s Hermits during their 1967 U.S. tour and whose #5 hit “(We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet” found its way to the iconic film Easy Rider. When the band broke up in 1970, Daking began a decades-long career as a recording engineer and studio designer. He even designed his own studio, Nimbus Nine, which featured four rooms: one API, one Neve, one Trident, and one Pro Tools. His recording highlights include work with Meatloaf, Hall & Oats, Cyndi Lauper, Luther Vandross, Lou Reed, Elvis Costello, Sonic Youth, Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Peter Tosh, and countless others.

In 1993, Daking directed his genius to design the analog recording equipment that he wished he had as an engineer. The first product, from what was to become known simply as “Daking Audio,” was an all-discrete Class “A” mic-pre/EQ based on the legendary Trident A Range circuits. The Daking Audio product line now includes three incarnations of mic-pre/EQ, together with two variations of FET compressors, each painstakingly perfected and meticulously built. Like everything else that Geoff Daking has put his mind to, the Daking Audio designs are both unique and deliver the Daking signature sound.

Everyone is also invited to an ATC SCM25A listening party earlier that same day in the control room at CRC. The informal listening party will commence at 1:00pm and will allow participants to bring their own music and play it back through what is quickly becoming the compact monitor of choice based on its ability to deliver mixes that reliably translate. The CRC listening party follows on the heels of a similar event at Blackbird Studio, being held on July 14th.
