Knopfler studio selects ADA-8XR converters
The British Grove Studios complex in Chiswick, England, has acquired six new ADA-8XR converters from Prism Sound. Having upgraded its existing pair of ADA-8 units, the facility is now running a total of eight units between its two studios, which are equipped with Pro Tools HD and Nuendo systems. The studio has used Prism Sound converters on the Grammy-winning 5.1 surround remix of the Dire Straits “Brothers In Arms” album, and in mastering Knopfler’s two most recent albums, “All The Roadrunning” (with Emmylou Harris) and “Shangri-La.”
Known as a hands-on artist, Knopfler chose the Prism Sound converters with studio manager David Stewart. Known for its excellent sound quality, the Prism Sound ADA-8XR can operate as a 16-channel analog-to-digital or digital-to-analog converter, or as an 8-channel AD/DA converter. It is a high-resolution 24-bit device and can operate at sampling rates of up to 192 kHz.
