Recording and Production News
Prism Sound's audio quality takes the BlameCambridge, UK: Blame is one of the best known and influential names on the UK's Drum & Bass scene. In fact he's been intertwined with it from the start, his Music Takes You on the Moving Shadow label helping to start the sound in the first place and a string of critical and commercial successes since only further cementing his reputation. Stay Forever in 2008, Because of You in 2009, solo album The Music in 2010...you get the picture. In 2012 alone Blame has had several high profile remixes for Stooshe, Sway and Skepta. But that's not all, he's also bought an Orpheus FireWire audio interface.
"As technology has taken some giant leaps recording studio wise within the last couple of years I have now found it possible to have my entire studio on a laptop," he says. "Nowadays I seem to be working from a lot of different locations, so I needed an exceptional audio interface that can travel with me. The Orpheus was my first choice."
Blame's purchase of the unit is partly down to the fact that whenever he visits a mastering room, they always seem to have Prism Sound converters and EQs as standard. "The mastered quality is always incredible and I wanted to have the same high quality back in my production chain," he says. "When mixing I can hear every detail which allows me to make creative decisions easily. When recording vocals or any of my outboard synthesizers the sound reproduced is pure and crystal clear and un-coloured - exactly what is needed!"
His first experiences have confirmed that the investment was worth it too. "As soon as I installed the Orpheus and hit play I could hear the clarity and depth of sound instantly. I started mixing a new track on it straight away and haven't looked back since!' he says. "I also had to record vocals for a new track the next day and was also blown away with the detail and purity of the recordings.
"My Orpheus is now firmly placed as my number one audio interface and I will be using it on all my upcoming projects and recording sessions from now on."
