    “When I discovered Apollo interfaces, it changed my life.” - Che Pope

    After contributing to the music industry for nearly 25 years and working with artists such as Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, and Aretha Franklin, Che Pope took on a unique challenge: record a killer, '60s style funk/soul track using the real-time processing and authentic analog emulations of the Apollo interface to record the masters of swing the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

    The goal of this session was to track “Higher Ground” just as it would have been done in the ‘60s, so the choices Che made were true to the era, style, and recording technology. Che was able to use the natural room sound of the hall and microphone bleed to his advantage, giving the song a unique character that only this space and session could create.

    When processing these tracks, Che Pope kept it simple. Adding ambience would have been unnecessary for obvious reasons, but Che decided to record with a UA 610-B Tube Preamp, Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder, and a Fairchild 660 Limiter on each channel.
