Cambridge, UK (April 1, 2011)–Music company Nimrod Productions has invested in a Prism Sound Orpheus FireWire computer interface for its film/video game work.
Production director Richard Aitken says, “We set up Nimrod Productions 10 years ago and are now regarded as a boutique music production company because we tend to go for left-field and high-end projects. Our client base is very diverse and includes video game companies, movie houses, TV networks and record labels such as Cinema NX, Fox, Sony SCEE, Ubisoft and Universal Music.”
The decision to invest in a Prism Sound Orpheus FireWire computer interface was taken earlier this year when film and video games composer Marc Canham decided to upgrade the conversion in his room.
Aitken explains, “For me, Prism Sound has always been a brand of excellence. I use Prism Sound ADA-8XR converters every time I’m in Abbey Road, where we do a lot of recording. When it came to upgrading Marc’s room, choosing Prism Sound was a no-brainer. I handle the post production and d-mix work on most of Marc’s projects and I was getting a little tired of his old conversion system. I needed a great front end for his recordings and the fact that Orpheus has excellent preamps is a stunning bonus.”
Nimrod Productions will soon be investing in a second unit for its voiceover studio. Aitken would also like to install an ADA-8XR in his own studio, which he would like to integrate with an Endless Analog CLASP tape system. “I do my mix work in DAW land with Pro Tools|HD. I want to be able to experience the same things I get in the other rooms with the Orpheus, so HD/ADA-8XR is the way I’d like to go eventually.”
Since it was installed the Orpheus has been used on a new movie currently called Speak No Evil and on the soundtrack for the video game, Secret World.
