Medford, MA (March 19, 2009)–Now available through dealers worldwide, the new Bricasti Design Model 10 Remote Console is a dedicated hardware remote controller for use with the Model 7 Stereo Reverb Processor.
“Sharing a consistent human interface with the Model 7 was an important design goal,” says company co-founder and president Brian Zolner. “Consequently, the Model 10’s control surface is simple, elegant and easy to use. The new M10 puts control where and when you want it–at the critical sweet spot–while making acoustically sensitive adjustments within any mixing environment. Whether controlling one or multiple Model 7 processors, the M10 lets the user build a system to their precise needs.”
One of the first customers for the new M10 was music-scoring mixer Alan Meyerson, who currently owns six Model 7 processors that are used to prepare separate 5.1-channel surround sound music tracks for motion-picture soundtracks.
“The new Model 10 makes it very easy to adjust and refine my M7 reverb settings,” Meyerson explains, “while I remain within the central ‘sweet spot’ on my console at my personal-use music studio, Yoakam Sound. With as many as six Model 7s online at a time, the remote control makes a great deal of sense. I might use, for example, three units on string elements and another three on brass: the first Model 7 for left and center, the second for right and center, and the third for surrounds. And for conventional stereo sessions, I might need to prepare as many as six separate stems. I love being able to store and recall every user parameter for each of my Model 7 processors.
“All in all,” Meyerson concludes, “the Model 10 is very slick looking and is fun to use; it’s definitely the only way to work!”
Recent projects for the music-scoring mixer include Inhale for director Baltasar Kormakur, with a score by composer James Newton Howard, and Angels & Demons for director Ron Howard, with a score by Hans Zimmer. Meyerson also worked on soundtracks for Iron Man with composer Ramin Djawadi, the animated feature Kung Fu Panda, and the Oscar-winning The Dark Knight, with joint composers Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard.
