Tuning your steel

I created this calculator to allow you to tune your Pedal Steel. Calculate your cabinet drop and enter it in the top box and you will get your values for strings, pedals and knee in cents or in frequency depending on the pitch you have chosen (440-441-442).  

Pedal steel sessions

I move regularly for studio sessions or record at home where I also have a fully equipped recording studio and work mainly on Protools HD. For takes several rooms are fully equipped to place amps and mic in different conditions or ambient situation (natural reverbs, space...). I aslo use trident préamps for the capture and many vintage microphones.

Studio sessions

- Protools HD [up to 24/192].
- Antelope discrete 8 DAW interface.
- Oram Trident [pre comp].
- Akg 414, Schoeps mic.
Final tracks can be provided in the following formats:
- 8,16,24,32 bits.
- 44,100 Hz, 48,000 Hz, 96,000 Hz, 192,000 Hz.
- 2.1 to 7.1 & sub
Note: The worldwide CD and digital standard is 44,100 Hz. This means that for every second, there are 44,100 samples played. The higher the sample rate (the number of "snapshots" of sound taken per second), the more precise the analysis and encoding of music into digital data will be. The sample rate affects the range of audio frequency from the lowest to the highest tonal value that can be stored.
