British Columbia, Canada (November 22, 2013)—Audient recently sold its 500th ASP8024 console to Rob Dewar, owner of a recording studio in rural British Columbia.
“It has provided a centralized input rig and return buss matrix, which has made my mostly single-handed recording and production work here much easier in terms of flow,” he said. “I have set up my most-used inputs (my drum kit mics, four miked guitar amps in booths, an M/S mic pair for acoustic guitars, a direct-patched bass, etc.) on a semi-permanent basis, and I have built a rolling mobile remote control rig for the DAW, and a set of satellite headphone 'pods,' so most of the time, I can just move into position, arm some tracks and let 'er rip, when inspiration strikes, without any serious setup time.”
Since this landmark sale, numbers have continued to grow. “Although the design has evolved over the years, the fact that sales of ASP8024 and its variants continue to show year on year growth stands testament to just how right David Dearden and the Audient team got the original design,” commented Audient’s co-founder Gareth Davies.
