Santa Monica, CA (January 23, 2013)-Antelope Audio’s clocks are at the center of the technical infrastructure at Rafa Sardina’s studio, After Hours.
“I have been experimenting with many clocks over the years and now use Antelope Audio exclusively,” says Sardina, a producer, mixer and engineer with eleven Grammy Awards. He recalls the first time he was introduced to the company’s studio clocking devices: “I was doing some movie scoring sessions and needed to use different sampling rates on the same clock because some of the composers had started the project using different sampling rates. The Antelope OCX-V was the only box I could find that could simultaneously lock into different sampling rates. I was blown away and purchased it right away.”
Sardina then began experimenting with Antelope’s atomic clocking technology and soon purchased the Trinity/10M combination. Since then, he has never looked back and says the difference it has made in his studio is “absolutely audible.” “You really have to compare clocks side by side to hear the difference. And after you first hear it, you realize that the Antelope clocking technology is superior.”
Sardina currently has an Antelope Audio Trinity/10M combination in his main studio, in addition to two OCX-Vs that he uses in his Pro Tools rig and a separate B-room upstairs. For Sardina, the Trinity/10M combination adds another dimension to the audio. “People tend to concentrate too much on preamps and EQs when upgrading their studios, but for me, great clocking makes all the difference,” Sardina observes. “Acoustics, speakers and clocking are the three most important ingredients in getting a great sound. Make these the number one investment in a studio, and it will completely change your world.”
