Prism Sound And SADiE Help Producer Tony Platt Complete A Vital Mix

Prism Sound's Orpheus multichanel; Firewire audio interface is being hailed as a 'saviour' by producer Tony Platt after he employed the device to rescue a vital mix session for SellaBand artist Daniel Ward-Murphy.
Platt, who is a director of the Music Producers Guild, was working on the mix in his project studio, The Shop, located within the Strongroom complex in London. At a critical point in the session, the A/D converter he had planned to use suddenly became unavailable - and to add to his problems his own audio interface box began misbehaving.
A quick call to Prism Sound brought an instant solution when the company agreed to loan him an Orpheus unit so that he could complete the mix.
Platt mixed from Pro Tools via his Mackie console into the Orpheus and then back into Pro Tools via AES. Safety monitoring was achieved via an AES loop back to the Orpheus patched into the 2 track return. The session was at 96Khz/24bit with the clocking centrally achieved with an A&D ProBox 12.
Prism Sound's involvement in the project continued beyond the mix and into mastering when Tony Platt used a Dream DA-2 conversion system to provide a high-quality audio stream. He also used digital audio workstations from SADiE, now part of the Prism Sound group, which are the de facto standard at Fluid Mastering in London, where the mastering session took place.
Daniel Ward-Murphy's melodic and powerful debut album 'Until The Morning Light' features a reportoire that he has spend the last couple of years honing and perfecting in venues around London, where he regularly performs. Initial reviews have been very favourable with reviewers picking up on the exceptional production values that bring out the best of Daniel and his band.
The album is now available on the SellaBand label ( - itself an unusual venture as it challenges the traditional music industry by encouraging artists and music lovers to go into business together. Anyone can invest in a SellaBand artist or band and once they have achieved the required amount of investment, investors receive a limited edition copy of their album. On top of that, the artists and their fans share equally in the revenues of the album. To date, 29 artists from 12 different countries have raised the full $50,000 and over $2,200,000 has been invested in unsigned acts.
One key factor in SellaBand's success is its strong network of producers. Its artists have the opportunity to work with world class producers, such as Greg Haver (Super Furry Animals, The Manic Street Preachers), Tony Platt (AC/DC, Bob Marley) and Steve Bush (Stereophonics).
