Ca Va Sound invests in Prism Sound ADA-8XR convertersCambridge June 2007: Glasgow-based Ca Va Sound Studios has invested in five Prism Sound ADA-8XR multichannel converters, which are being used in conjunction with its new Digidesign Pro Tools HD3 system.
"The Prism Sound ADA-8XRs are being used across both of our studios, but primarily in conjunction with our Neve VR Legend console and Pro Tools system," says Brian Young, founding director of Ca Va Sound. "They offer exceptionally high quality audio and in our opinion are the best converters on the market."

Based in the West End of Glasgow, Ca Va Sound is a professional recording studio that has been attracting top artists for more than 30 years. Its extensive client list ranges from corporate to local bands and includes many renowned artists such as Texas, The Blue Nile, Snow Patrol, Franz Ferdinand, Belle & Sebastian and the Fratellis.
In June 2005, Ca Va Sound underwent an extensive refurbishment programme that involved closing Studio One and relocating its flagship Neve VR Legend console to Studio 2. It also moved its broadcast studio, TX4, to ground level and equipped it as a comprehensive voice-over and mastering studio. With ISDN and High Speed Broadband capabilities, the studio now provides clients with top quality audio plus the ability to link to others worldwide.
Young says: "The renovations enabled us to create a more pleasant and relaxed working environment. One feature designed into the layout of our new Neve VR Legend studio was daylight - while sitting at the console it is now possible to look out into the redesigned garden."
Ca Va Sound offers customers the latest technology combined with classic analogue recording equipment. Sound quality is all-important, and this philosophy played a major role in the facility's decision to invest in Prism Sound ADA-8XR converters.
Ca Va Sound also has a 48-track mobile recording facility, The Audiomobile, which is a 40 foot articulated truck that can house engineers, riggers and lots of equipment. Often found outside venues all around the country, the truck has also been spotted at T in The Park, Barrowland Ballroom, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Princess Street Gardens and many more.
