Los Angeles (November 30, 2005)–Advanced Audio Rental has become the first pro audio rental company in the U.S. to incorporate Prism Sound’s new ADA-8XR multichannel converter and processor units into a full 48 I/0 Prism Pro Tools hire system.
The precision eight-channel ADA-8XR operates at sampling rates up to 192kHz and is said to boast even greater analog performance than Prism Sound’s successful ADA-8 converters.
Paul Levy, head of Advanced Audio Rental, said, “We’ve stocked Prism ADA-8 converters for some time, but when the company brought out the new ADA-8XR units we realised they were particularly useful for the film community because they operate at sampling rates of up to 192kHz. They are 100 percent compatible with Pro Tools HD and, because they do not require a Digidesign 192 I/O interface, they are ideal for people working on location or moving around from studio to studio.”
Advanced Audio Rental has bought six units and Levy is anticipating great demand from European producers and composers who are completing Pro Tools-based projects in Hollywood.
“The Prism Pro Tools configuration is already well-established in Europe, but until now it hasn’t been possible for visiting producers and composers to start or complete a project in a seamless way using equipment they feel comfortable with,” he explained.
