Killer outboard gear.
The other side of sound.
About Dan, and why Korneff Audio
Dan Korneff is a producer, mixer, engineer who has an extensive discography including some of the biggest names in new rock (Pierce the Veil, Paramore, Papa Roach, Breaking Benjamin, Sleeping With Sirens, My Chemical Romance). He works out of his studio, Sonic Debris Recording, in Long Island, NY. The studio is a full service, multi-room operation featuring a Solid State Logic 8048G console and a ton of outboard gear.
A long, long time ago, audio engineers were actual electrical engineers. They built the equipment they used to make records. Dan is part of that tradition. He's modified his SSL console, and he's torn apart and rebuilt vintage compressors, equalizers, guitar amplifiers and microphones. His custom made compressors are a big deal (and a big secret) in the professional audio industry.
The Pawn Shop Comp is the first commercial product released by Korneff Audio Inc. It's based on the circuits of vintage tube and FET compressors, blended together to create something unique. It's been tested and refined on three years of recording and mixing sessions - Dan and his team of beta testers have used the Pawn Shop Comp on recordings that you've probably heard. Those sorts of sounds, and whatever new sounds you can dream up, are what the Pawn Shop Comp is all about.
What about Lily
Another tradition in the golden days of the big commercial record studio was the studio dog. Engineers had dogs, producers had dogs. It was pretty common to walk into a facility and be greeted by a friendly pooch that probably had huge amounts of hearing loss.
Lily is a modern contribution to that venerable canine tradition. Walk into Sonic Debris and you'll be greeted by Lily... with her hypersonic bark that's the equivalent to putting your ear an inch away from a snare drum that someone is hitting with a piece rebar. Yow! Lily also loves to play. And bark. And play. And bark. And play... and then bark some more.
But at 2am, after a long day, it's awfully nice to have Lily jump up on your lap and lick the remnants of pizza off your hand, and then fall asleep.
