GRAMMY®-winning recording and mixing engineer
I must admit, I was skeptical that a simple audio cable could make a discernible difference in my recordings, but I must now confess that I’m a cable thanks to Oyaide!
I first tried their Black Mamba power cable on my sound interface, a Digidesign 192 I/O. Immediately I heard a broad depth of image that I hadn’t heard before. There seemed to be a wideness to the sound-field but with an improved phase coherency. I also noticed that the digital clock seemed to have less jitter, providing clarity and substance to sounds that had previously been somewhat transparent. An Apogee I/O had similar results with even more dramatic clock accuracy. I could tell, especially in soft acoustic music, that there was more delicacy, less harshness in the hi-end, and rounder low mid.
The PA-02 had a dramatic impact on my vocal-mic, a Gefell UM-900. Most noticeably, the output was higher, providing more gain at the mic-preamp stage so I could run the mic-pre cooler. There was a newfound warmth in signal without sacrificing any clarity.
I can only attribute this to the superconduttivity of the cable.
