Burbank, CA (November 16, 2012)-Products from Aphex are part of the signal chain for Music Mix Mobile (M3), a New Jersey/California-based remote recording, mixing and production company.
M3's services have helped several television programs and large-scale events broadcast the highest quality audio. Such programs include The Grammys, The Latin Grammys, VH1 Storytellers, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon's live broadcast from the University of North Carolina.
Part of M3's signal chain is the Aphex Model 188 Microphone Preamp. M3 has been using the 188 at various gigs through the summer months, including the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, TN, the Budweiser Made in America festival in Philadelphia and the upcoming Latin Grammys.
Joel Singer, chief engineer for M3, states, "We continue to use the 188 in our Voyager, OBU and flightpack systems. The Aphex 188 is an important part of making the signal chain work efficiently and effectively. I can say that as a package we're thrilled with it because of the sound quality, size and feature set. It solves many of the challenges that come with working on complex music programs in remote broadcast shows. We're able to save space and still have loads of channels for some of these bigger events. They perform so much better than their competitors in this preamp category, and plain and simple, they sound great. Add into the mix that they're remote-controlled and already have optical outputs-it's a win-win. You really get a lot of bang for your buck."
At the recent IHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas, M3 brought two trucks for added flexibility to cover a hectic itinerary. The California-based M3 West truck Horizon is equipped with Aphex's Model 1788A premium eight-channel microphone preamp. Singer adds, "You know what you're getting with a 1788A and 188's, and that's a musical sounding pre. I love both products, and we'll continue to use them on our future gigs."
