Folks, my mighty SONY TC-158SD Portable Cassette recorder is Back on the Scene like an Akio Morita machine! A couple of adjustments to make and then taking it in the field today for immediate assignment

Jon’s new-old tape recorder, thanks to Akio Morita! – Jon Hammond Akio Morita (盛田 昭夫 Morita Akio, January 26, 1921, Nagoya, Aichi – October 3, 1999, Tokyo) was a Japanese businessman and co-founder of Sony Corporation along with Masaru Ibuka. Akio Morita was born in the village of Kosugaya, Japan. Morita’s family was involved in sake, miso and soy sauce production in the Chita Peninsula, Aichi Prefecture since 1665. He was the oldest of four siblings and his father Kyuzaemon trained him as a child to take over the family business. Akio, however, found his true calling in mathematics and physics, and in 1944 he graduated from Osaka Imperial University with a degree in physics. He was later commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Imperial Japanese Navy, and served in World War II. During his service, Morita met his future business partner Masaru Ibuka in the Navy’s Wartime Research Committee. On May 7, 1946, Morita and Ibuka founded Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo Kabushiki Kaisha (Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation, the forerunner of Sony Corporation) with about 20 employees and initial capital of ¥190,000. Ibuka was 38 years old, Morita, 25. Morita’s family invested in Sony during the early period and was the largest shareholder. In 1949, the company developed magnetic recording tape and in 1950, sold the first tape recorder in Japan. In 1957, it produced a pocket-sized radio (the first to be fully transistorized), and in 1958, Morita and Ibuka decided to rename their company Sony (sonus is Latin for sound, and Sonny-boys the most common American expression).[2] Morita was an advocate for all the products made by the Sony Corporation. However, since the radio was slightly too big to fit in a shirt pocket, Morita made his employees wear shirts with slightly larger pockets to give the radio a “pocket sized” appearance…

“This was, without exaggeration, one of the best acoustics-related technical decisions for the NDR I have been involved in during the past few years,” comments NDR sound engineer Michael Plötz. “The digital audio world now enjoys incomparably good sound thanks to the use of the AX 24 in the production chain of this studio. The combination of a DAD AX24 and the SSL Duality console places us in a new ‘analog/digital world'”.

NDR Regie 1 in the Funkhaus am Rothenbaum

The completely reworked Studio 1 and Regie 1 at NDR Radio’s Funkhaus am Rothenbaum is designed primarily for recording the NDR Bigband, one of the best finest bands in Germany. Studio 1 is built around a 72 fader SSL Duality and Sequoia digital audio workstation software. Eight NTP DAD AX24 converters are connected via MADI to the workstation.
