Every now and then, a StudioTrap, TubeTrap or QSF shows up in a
movie or video. In the 20+ years these products have been around,

This has led to sightings in movies and music videos that we love
to know about. We rarely hear about these sightings, so we're asking
you to let us know when you spot a QSF in a movie or video. If we

David Gilmour's "On An Island" CD
Mr. Gilmour got together with David Crosby and Graham Nash for
a few songs on this fine CD. Turns out he's still using his TubeTraps,

We are sorry to hear that Porter Wagoner passed
on recently. His name and sound are so familiar. One song in particular
from his last album, Wagonmaster, is getting lots of airtime right
now. It is “Committed to Parkview” by Johnny Cash and
was recorded with Marty Stuart at OMNIsound in Nashville. In the
video of the song, he is surrounded by ASC Studio Traps and they
are also in photos from the actual recording session. We are very
proud to have played even the smallest role in helping to record

of a three-decade career, including several for Santana, beginning
with Santana III in 1971 and continuing through his multi-multi-Platinum
Supernatural. Now, from his current home in Boynton Beach, Fla.,
Kolotkin has assembled another genre-crossing ensemble—Latin
pop sextet Ka-Cha—that combine sinewy guitar work a la early
Santana with modern pop melodies and distinct world influences.
