Thinking of Lodgesound (Stewart Emmings)

Recommended Posts

I haven't posted here for a while. But I thought you might like to see Stew's Otari MTR12 in action. He bequeathed this to me, after he passed away almost 2 years ago at the age of 49 from bowel cancer. This machine belonged to Dave Stewart at Church Studios. I feel very honoured to be its guardian. Here it is playing a copy of the distribution master of George Michael's Faith - Father figure - seems rather appropriate, as he taught me everything I know about tape machines.

Consistently the best sound I heard at Scalford, he was an oracle for reel to reel and all round good 'un.

James, indeed Stew was an oracle on many matters. Our technical loss pales into comparison with that experienced by his colleagues at the BFI, where he was chief video archivist, as well as the guy, who maintained many of their vintage machines (tape, video and film).
