Hello, I am Clark Huckaby, a musician, audio electronics technician, and recording engineer with an affinity for vacuum tubes. I play a little fiddle and mandolin, and enjoy designing, building, and modifying audio electronic gear. At present (last update 2/7/11), this whole web site describes some older projects (up to 2004) from my tenure at Transient Sound, New Haven CT.
What's New? Since moving to Ohio at the end of '04, I've mostly just played in some bands and developed an approach to finding new sounds by time-compressing recorded infrasonic phenomena. I have called this special recording channel an "infrasonicon" and you can learn more about it on its new web site: infrasonicon.com.
What Else is New?
A Working Email Address: Please note that I'm now using the email address pictured below. I promise to check it regularly.
Fender "vibrato": To follow up my original article posted here, I've recently studied the classic optical-coupler-controlled Fender "vibrato" channel in much greater detail. I'll be publishing the methods and results here very soon.
Contact me using the following email address. It's an image so that humans, not spam-bots, can read it. Sorry you'll have to type it into your email applicaltion rather than just clicking on it. In return for this inconvenience, I promise not to spam you back.
You can find these projects inside this web site...
More content and organization may be comming up, which might include:
More details on VIHYB--my Variable Impedance HYBrid microphone preamp (I have enough input transformers on hand to make 24 channels.)
More instrument preamps and stomp boxes that I've built or modified
More on Fender "vibrato"
Tools of the trade for the bench and studio, special features, and great ideas given away for free!
