Prism Sounds’ ADA-8XR Converter adds to growing list of credits

Multiple award-winning composer Richard Jacques, who specialises in music for computer games, has recently completed the trailer for a new Sony PlayStation 3 game using Prism Sound’s ADA-8XR multi-channel converters and processors.
The trailer was recorded in surround sound at AIR Studios in London using a full orchestra. Jacques collaborated closely with sound designer Dominic Gibbs and was assisted throughout by Pro Tools specialist Matt Howe. The trailer was eventually dubbed at Shepperton Film Studios to ensure a truly cinematic feel.
“My involvement with Prism Sound dates back to 2001 when Matt and I recorded the score for Sega’s 'Headhunter' at Abbey Road Studios,” Richard Jacques said. “That was a first for a number of reasons: the first to use “A” list London session musicians for a computer game score; the first orchestral score to be recorded straight to Pro Tools using the Prism Sound ADA-8 converters, and the first computer game score to be recorded at Abbey Road. The audio quality delivered by the converters was so phenomenal that Abbey Road subsequently bought their own units, while the game itself won numerous awards and accolades because of the quality and cinematic feel of its soundtrack.”
