United Studio Technologies UT Twin87

FEATURED REVIEW

United Studio Technologies UT Twin87

Why choose between vintage and modern when you can have both?

Based in Baton Rouge, La., United Studio Technologies started in 2018 with a mission to build classic microphone reissues with no compromises. At the time of writing, United currently offers two models: the UT FET47 and the UT Twin87, the later is on review today. Inspired by the iconic Neumann U 87, the UT Twin87 sets itself apart from other clones on the market with a unique twist. We’ll look at how the UT Twin87 stands on its own and how it stacks up against its inspiration.

Recording a Band… As a Band

Sometimes the best way to make a record is in stages: track drums and bass, overdub guitar and keyboards, then vocals, etc.. This lets you make sure each part is perfect before moving on; that’s great for songwriters fleshing out arrangements or for really awful bands that just can’t get through a song without a train wreck. However, when you have a band that rocks hard together, you can capture a much more ass-kicking performance by having the whole band play together, feeding off of each other in a way that just doesn’t happen when the drummer has already gone home and the guitar player is asked to shred all alone in a big, cold room under a bare bulb.
