Making Magic

In addition to regular classes, the Conservatory hosts extra-curricular technical DIY events where students build mic preamps, mod microphones and in this case construct live sound instructor Keith Morris’ Magic Box for the AES student chapter. The Magic Box is a passive dynamic processor that delivers a “warmer” sound by emulating tube circuitry and it also boosts the gain of the signal by 6dB. The students that participated in the build were responsible for soldering the connections and following specific instructions delivered by Keith who also covered practical applications of the device for live sound use as well as use in the studio. All units were tested in the Live Sound room after the boxes were built.
