Burbank, CA (June 8, 2012)—The Aphex Model 188 Microphone Preamp has become part of the recording and post production infrastructure for Music Mix Mobile (M3).
M3, a New Jersey/California-based remote recording, mixing and production company that has worked with shows such as The Grammys, The Latin Grammys, VH1 Storytellers, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, the live broadcast of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" from the University of North Carolina, and the 2012 concert event commemorating the bestowing of The Gershwin Prize, among many others.
"The Aphex 188 is crucial to making the signal chain work efficiently and effectively," states Joel Singer, chief engineer for M3. "We chose the Aphex 188 because it solves so many of the challenges that come with working on complex music programs in remote broadcast situations," he says.
"We can get 96 channels of microphones into a single 24-space rack, and that saves us critical space and weight. We can control the mic-pres remotely, which increases efficiency, and they have digital outputs, which further reduces space that would otherwise have been taken up with A-to-D converters. And the 188 sounds fantastic—they're incredibly clear sounding and very musical. Combine that with all of the operational efficiencies they offer and the amount of functionality you get for the price and you see that they're the best choice for this kind of work. That's also why we have another 128 channels of Aphex 188s for our West Coast office. It's a great device."
