Ian Haug is no stranger to musical performance and recording, being a full-time member of iconic Australian bandThe Churchand founding member of the much-lovedPowderfinger.
As a long time owner/operator ofAirlock Studios, it seems these worlds of performance, studio and recording are coming together and merging into a very timely format with his new venture - “Up in the Airlock”
At times an art gallery and performance venue, Brisbane's Alchemix studio has always been an immersive recording space, and now in its third incarnation harnesses purpose-built recording areas and a great mix of old and new technology.
Recently adding Amphion One18s to the mix has sharpened the tool box of this eclectic creative hub...
Since becoming Beatbox team world champion with Joel Turner in 2005, Brisbane’s Tom Thum has elevated the art of beatboxing to new heights via TEDx talks (with views in the millions), a string of awards and near-constant international touring.
Federal Audio spoke to Tom about the his studio, ADAM A77X monitors and his hectic career...
Sydney's Alchemy Music Group recently made the switch to ADAM monitoring in their one-stop-shop studio facility. Federal Audio talked to producer Sammy Kannis about covering all the bases in the music & recording business.
You made it! Welcome to Federal Audio's new webstore
Up to this point in time, Federal Audio has been a distributor suppling a range of dealers across Australia with pro audio products from ADAM Audio, Lindell Audio and Miktek. My aims have always been to supply those brands at price parity (or as close as I can) to overseas pricing whilst supporting my dealers with the best backup I can give.
The original idea for the webstore was an outlet for the new ADAM Audio GTC and ADAM Audio ARTist ranges so I could bring to these to the Australian market at the most competitive price possible. These superbly engineered speakers are in a premium price bracket but by avoiding a dealer margin means that they are available in Australia for slightly cheaper than what is available through US suppliers (by the time you factor in currencies, shipping, customs and GST etc) making them an exciting proposition for Australian customers .
But as I was setting up this ADAM online outlet, around me many pro audio retailers and distributors across Australia began culling their lines or closing their doors and it became clear that the funky pro audio stuff that I also have particular love for, those niché products made by smaller boutique manufactures, are products that are now being overlooked by retailers and as such, will be missed by Australian audio professionals so I felt compelled to stick my hand up and bring some of these brands to Australian shores.
Aside from long time Federal brands ADAM, Miktek, Lindell, Ardan and explorAudio I've also added Måag, AwTAC and Mothmic but there's a long list to follow so watch for announcements here or on the Federal Audio Facebook page.
Plus, I'm also going to be doing one off specials in very limited quantities of other brands that I don't stock. You can find them on the "Specials/Clearance" page so keep an eye on that. Most will be random 500 series modules but I've got some microphones and 19" outboard planned.
