Hanover, MA (November 29, 2017)—Ultrasound Production Studios, a commercial venture owned by John Hanna and Joe Clapp, recently installed an Audient ASP8024 Heritage Edition console at the heart of its Massachusetts facility.
The Heritage was a replacement for a previously installed ASP8024. “The Heritage has every upgrade I could ever want. It was like the designers read my mind. It was scary—I thought only my wife did that,” said Hanna. “I feel like I’m on a big board with this console, yet everything is right in front of me and always in reach. It’s natural. Pure—I like that. I have found that other than using my CAPI V28s and Dakings for certain tones, I am all ITB, meaning ‘in the board.’ For me, the Audient is everything I need.”
Hanna is an attorney, leaving the day-to-day running of the studio to Clapp. “Joe handles all the sessions and we have a few independent engineers,” he explains. An entrepreneur, audio engineer and musician himself, he also records his own material there. “At my age, it’s pure self-enjoyment. I love the studio; I still record and get into the gear.”
Hanna comments, “This is only the second console I ever bought brand new. I love this console so much that I have told Paul Savasta at Odyssey Pro Sound [his local dealer who supplied the Audient Heritage] to get ready for a second order, as I plan to install it in my house.”
