Cambridge, UK (April 3, 2015)—In recent months, Donal Hodgson, Sting’s recording engineer, upgraded the Steerpike Studios rig with nine Pro Tools HDX cards from Prism Sound.
“I was very keen to ensure that we could still use our ADA-8 converters with the new system so I ordered nine Pro Tools HDX cards from Prism Sound; I am delighted to say that, after changing the chips and the DIO interface cards, the converters worked first time,” says Hodgson.
“The release of Pro Tools V11 on HD Native and HDX hardware saw the legacy Digidesign 96 and 192 interfaces no longer supported on these Pro Tools hardware and software systems,” says Graham Boswell, sales and marketing director for Prism Sound. “Avid also declared that Pro Tools V10 software would be the last to support these legacy interfaces. Our response was to create the Prism Sound HDX compatible interface card. This connects directly with the Pro Tools|HDX interface cards and emulates the behavior of the Avid HD I/O interfaces, allowing Prism Sound conversion quality with Pro Tools software. Each card allows the connection of eight channels of digital audio. With four cards in two ADA-8 units, a 32-channel recording system is possible.”
