Nashville, TN (April 5, 2011)
John Hiatt is tracking his next album in Nashville with producer Kevin Shirley and an Endless Analog CLASP system. A multiple Grammy nominee, Hiatt’s career spans several decades, with songs such as "Thing Called Love," "Riding with the King," "Have a Little Faith in Me" and "Angel Eyes" to his credit. He is working with Shirley–Hiatt’s last few LPs have been completed without the help of a separate producer–at the studio space now owned by Ben Folds, previously known as RCA Studio A/Javelina Studios.

Endless Analog’s CLASP (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) system integrates analog tape machines into the digital audio production workflow. "Working with tape again just sounds so much better to me; it’s such an improvement over straight digital," noted Hiatt. "When we started tracking these songs, we were all blown away just hearing it again, because I haven’t cut to tape in several years. And we’re back using different kinds of tape and experimenting with different tape speeds to the MCI JH-24, just like the old days. It’s really thrilling. The tracks sound alive, and because we don’t have to change reels or rewind, the creative process is uninterrupted."

Hiatt appreciates the ways that CLASP improves upon the analog recording process. "The fact that you can run the 24-track and work in real time and do everything–punch-ins and all that stuff–is fantastic. We get warm, classic analog sound with all the editing and recording capabilities of the digital age. And we do not have to worry about changing tapes, because CLASP lets us use the same reel almost indefinitely. We’ve only used one reel so far, and we’ve cut 15 songs."
