Clover Productions recently upgraded their sound design/post-production suite to include a pair of Yamaha MSP10 Studio monitors. According to owner/chief engineer Mike Clover, the monitors crank out sound ten hours a day, seven days a week, including national and regional spots for Kroger, Big O Tires, a number of health care facilities and the Kentucky Lottery. The Louisville, Ky.-based facility features a 26 x 42-foot tracking room, three isolation rooms, lock-to-picture, a large music library and SFX, extensive ISDN capabilities and a Pro Tools digital audio workstation.

Clover’s additional gear includes an AMEK–TAC Scorpion console, a pair of Avalon 737s and “classic” effects: dbx1066 and 1060s, a Yamaha SPX990 and a REV7. “Aside from the Avalons, we don’t use a lot of outboard gear, much less our DAT machines,” he explains. “Everything is ProTools and plug-ins these days—mostly from Focusrite, WAVES and the items that come with ProTools. We have the 24 MixPlus 8-channel hard disk recording/editing system with 888I/O digital input, and we sync to video quite a bit. Our business is not $5,000 mics; we have Neumann TLM193s, 421s, EV RE-20s, A-T 4047s, SM81s, and lots of Shures.”

Clover Productions and its sister division, Airborne Recording Studio, specialize in commercial sound design, production and audio post-production, voice-overs and music for television and radio commercials.
