Kav Sandhu Installs Prism Sound Titan Audio Interface

DJ and former Happy Mondays guitarist Kav Sandhu has installed a Prism Sound Titan audio interface in his UK project studio so that he can record 'release quality' vocal when he isn't able to access a commercial recording facility.

Sandhu set up the band Blitz Vega in 2018 with bassist Andy Rourke, formerly with The Smiths, and the band was recording a new album in Los Angeles and New York when the Covid pandemic forced the world to close down. The band scattered to various parts of the world with Kav returning to the UK where he set up a project studio and put a Prism Sound Titan at the heart of it.

"There is no doubt in my mind that the Titan saved me," Sandhu said. "Without it, I would never have been able to capture high quality vocals and guitar at home. Thanks to Titan I was able to continue working and being creative during lockdown, which was really important to me."

Prism Sound's Titan is a multi-channel audio interface that offers high quality analogue and digital I/O for Mac or Windows PC. It delivers sample rates of up to 192kHz via a simple USB interface and was specifically designed for recording professionals who use external hardware devices such as Pro Tools but want easy access to Prism Sound’s internationally acclaimed high quality audio. Titan offers all the award-winning features of the company's competitively priced Orpheus, but with USB connectivity and an MDIO interface expansion slot that allows for direct connection to Pro Tools|HDX systems.

Kav Sandhu’s project studio is, he said: "Really nice and basic. He uses Pro Tools and Logic on his iMac and listens to everything through Yamaha and KRK monitors, powered by Yamaha amps, as well as some old school big PA DJ speakers. A wide range of other equipment is also being used – some in Sandhu’s studio and the rest in project facilities owned by Andy Rourke and Will Kennedy.

"Nothing can replace the vibe of working with a full band, but the Titan has made recording remotely as good as recording vocals and guitar parts separately in any full working studio," Sandhu said. "It's great because you can capture something as soon as you get that creative spark. You don’t have to travel anywhere. It's changed my life because I can capture everything I need, and sometimes it’s better than recording in a recording studio."

Working remotely, and with band members in so many different locations, required Blitz Vega to think outside the box. Producer Will Kennedy ran recording sessions via Zoom and then pulling everything together in his studio in LA.

"It was good that a lot of the bands parts were done before we left LA last spring, but since then I’ve personally been adding vocals, extra guitars and keyboards on the tracks for our forthcoming album and EPs," Sandhu explained. "Once Will has finished with the recording sessions, we send the tracks to Jagz Kooner and he mixes them."
