Amsterdam, Holland (July 29, 2016)—Red Bull Studios Amsterdam has been making the most of its new analog mixing console, an Audient ASP8024, and that in turn inspired studio manager Jasper Cremers to purchase an Audient iD22 audio interface and ASP880 8-channel mic preamplifier.
“Whenever they’re needed in the Red Bull Studios, they act as our ‘B’ set up without compromising our quality standards,” said Cremers, who juggles being studio manager at Red Bull Studios Amsterdam with his work as a music producer.
His private studio sports Dynaudio BM6A MkI monitors “which I absolutely adore”, and there, the iD22 and ASP880 are hooked up to some Warm Audios, an Avalon preamp and SSL EQs. ”The thing is,” he said, ”I’m not really an engineer. I just want to record as soon as possible when I have an idea, and don’t want to worry about the sound later. That is what these babies enable me to do.”
“They’re a real step up from my previous converters, sound and workflow wise,” he added. “They’re simple and user-friendly, yet flexible enough to facilitate more complex sessions.” As for the ASP880, “The impedance switch – that’s some clever engineering! I’ve never seen that on other units, and it’s definitely a way to make these units interesting for pro users.”
