Bozeman, MT (November 12, 2014)—Jereco Studios in Bozeman, MT has switched to a new Yamaha Nuage system after more than a decade working on an 02R96.
According to Jeremiah Slovarp, producer/engineer and president of Jereco Studios, “I admit, I miss the old console, but am moving ahead with the new Yamaha Nuage. The 02R96 still works after almost 14 years, which is a real testament to Yamaha's design and build quality.”
Bozeman, a small town located outside of Yellowstone National Park, is home to a dense film and music community. Four-time Emmy award-winning Jereco Studios offers sync-to-film ADR and voice-over recordings with remote link up via ISDN or SourceConnect. Jereco is equipped for 5.1 and 7.1 digital surround sound, Dolby E, DTS, and many other formats. In addition, the studio provides a full line of live sound reinforcement services and equipment rental packages.
Slovarp, who drove seven hours to Salt Lake City for a demo of the Nuage system at Poll Sound, has been using Nuendo 2 since 2002, keeping up with every revision and update. He said the most important thing he appreciates about Nuage is that it has enabled him to put down the keyboard and mouse.
“I feel like I can get back to mixing, pushing faders, turning knobs, and just working on a creative console. After an eight or 10 hour day, my hands would be in pain from all the manual movements I had to make being dependent on mouse editing and clicking. With the advent of all the cool and amazing new digital DAW-based mixing tools and equipment, I think the industry, in general, has regressed from the art of mixing and working with consoles and large format hardware. But with Nuage, I appreciate the deliberate move Yamaha has made to enable engineers to get back to mixing and editing as an art form.”
