Recording and Production in the News
Jason Phats changes direction with OrpheusCambridge, UK. October 24, 2014: Legendary writer, producer, remixer and DJ Jason Phats has become the latest high-profile musician to purchase a Prism Sound Orpheus Firewire Recording Interface.
"The sound is extremely detailed and transparent. Clarity, depth, separation and stereo imaging is breath-taking - my jaw hit the floor when I first heard it," he says. "I found myself kicking back in the sweet spot and going through my music collection. Suddenly everything made sense."
Phats runs the Orpheus through an SSL Sigma summing mixer and likes the unit primarily for its ability to lever both Prism Sound quality conversion and mic preamps into a 1U box and then cram it full of features. These include line, microphone and instrument inputs, selectable RIAA Equalization for turntables, a built-in premium-quality monitoring mixer for each output providing for performer foldback and surround monitoring, and concurrent ADAT and switchable S/PDIF or AES3 digital I/O plus support for outboard MIDI devices.
Phats, who has sold over 5m records in a career spanning nearly quarter of a century. adds that the Orpheus has fundamentally altered the way he works.
"From the moment I started working with the Orpheus I could see myself getting closer to the sound I had been searching for," he says. "I decided to stop releasing tracks and focus on a goal: a new sound, a new direction."
Pursuing the new path took time but now, eight months later, Phats and his management are in the process of releasing his new material.
"With the Orpheus I could instantly identify where I was going wrong in my mixes and productions. Once I could understand the mixing process with such detail and depth I was able to achieve exactly what I wanted," he says.
The first track from the new 'Phats & Orpehus' partnership was Jason Phats & Fenton Gee's \ \ H I T E \ \ A T E R (White Water), which caused a real buzz in Ibiza over the summer. There is plenty more to come too.
"Every day is a joy in the studio with the Orpheus and I am very proud of the new material I have lined up for the future," he says. "The huge leap in quality has led to some great collaboration."
