Suantraí, pronounced “SOON-tree,” is an Irish word that means “lullabies,” and can also mean a feeling of gentleness and comfort. The word was introduced to us by our good friend, Eoin O’Neill.
This album was recorded DSD PURE to a Sonoma workstation through an 8 channel Grace preamp and Meitner MKIII A to D positioned close to the artists for the best sonic integrity. It is the first in a series of DSD PURE "Corner Recordings" from Super Audio Center and Immersive Studios in Boulder Colorado.
Jon’s guitar and banjo were recorded with a Shure KSM 32 and a Royer R-121 ribbon microphone.
Adam’s fiddle was recorded with a Shure KSM 32 and an AEA R-92 ribbon microphone.
In addition, two Shure KSM 32’s were used to record the room.
