New York (January 31, 2011)—Milennia preamps were used to record the score of True Grit, currently nominated for numerous Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
32 channels of Millennia HV-3R and HV-3D preamps captured the sound of Carter Burwell’s music with Michael Farrow engineering. The multi award-winning team has worked together for numerous films created by the Coen Brothers, including Fargo and The Big Lebowski.
For True Grit’s score, recorded in New York’s Manhattan Center, Farrow chose Millennia to get the sound: “I wanted to use the HV3's because of the incredible transparency, plus the endless headroom. I know I can count on them to deliver the clearest, cleanest, most transparent sound possible from my microphones. They’re very classy sounding mic pre's.”
Farrow used two HV-3Rs and two HV-3Ds as the front end of his recording chain.
