Recording and Production in the News
Titan is an instant hit with Supa DupsCambridge January 2014: Grammy Award winning producer and DJ, Supa Dups, has just added a Prism Sound Titan USB multitrack audio interface to his equipment roster, complimenting the Prism Sound Lyra 2 audio interface that is already an integral part of his studio set up..

Supa Dups, who began DJ-ing at the age of 11 and producing at 16, has worked with some of the biggest names in the music business. A member of the influential Black Chiney Sound System, a nod to his Chinese Jamaican heritage, Supa Dups' breakthrough came in 2004 when he produced Nina Sky's Turnin' Me On. He is now one of the most sought after writer/producers around and has worked with numerous artists including Eminem (one track on the Grammy Award winning 'Recovery'), Mary J Blige, John Legend and Bruno Mars.
"Prism Sound is the Rolls-Royce of converters and there's nothing else that sounds like it," he says of his kit. "There is other equipment and then there's Prism Sound. In fact, the Lyra 2 is my mobile rig now."
Although he is exceptionally busy, Supa Dups prefers not to name the artists he's currently working with because not everything recorded in his studio always sees the light of day. But he is very keen to talk about his Prism Sound converters - Titan, which he only recently took delivery of and Lyra 2, which he uses all the time. "I haven't had a lot of time to play with Titan yet, but I keep having excellent experiences with Lyra," he says. "The other day I was working with a band and plugged the guitar and bass into it at the same time and used it right there on the spot. It sounded excellent. We finished everything on it, even the demo vocal. Basically it has become the centrepiece of the studio. Everything about it is awesome."
Supa Dups spends a lot of time working out of Circle House studios in Miami, and credits the city with having a fantastically diverse music scene.
"It's like London minus the dub-step, but with an additional overall Caribbean influence which collides with the American sounds. It's definitely got a style all of its own," he says.
Proving he's a man of much versatility, Supa Dups recently finished an entire live reggae album. "I didn't know I could do that," he says. "It was a challenge for me but I'd definitely like to be involved in more entire projects in the future and writing classic albums that people will be listening to in decades to come."
And the Lyra 2 and his new Titan will be with him every step of the way. "There is a lot more to explore with them," he says. "I've used the Lyra 2 for hours and hours and technically I'm not sure I've broken the back of it yet. There's still a lot to learn and play with, but it always sounds awesome."
