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.
