FX supplies ProTools rig to award-winning engineer/producer Jerry Boys

The FX Group has supplied a ProTools HD rig to Jerry Boys, studio director of Livingston Studios in North London.
The purchase allows Livingston to offer Pro Tools HD in both studios at no extra charge to its clients.
Boys based the specification of his ProTools rig on FX’s hire system following advice from the company’s ProTools department, purchasing an HD2 Accel system with 24 IO on 192s, Sync IO, a Dual 2.7 GHz Apple Mac, 19 inch TFT screen, Glyph Firewire GT103 with Keydrives and a large selection of plugins including Waves.
“I used FX because I have known them for years and therefore I know they give good service and back-up,” explained Boys about his choice to purchase ProTools from FX. “They also were very competitive on price.”
Boys, who cut his teeth on the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and also recorded and mixed the Buena Vista Social Club, has been working with the new ProTools rig on his latest project with Grammy-winning Mali artist Ali Farka Toure. Other recent clients for the new gear include producer Dennis Bovell who’s been working with Jamaican roots reggae musician Max Edwards, producer Steve Lironi with Irish singer songwriter Luan Parle, and folk pop duo Nizlopi of JCB Song fame, working with producer Grant Showbiz.
