A British-made Audient ASP8024 console – supplied by Funky Junk France – was first choice for Jean-Christian Maas, owner of Studio des Bruères, a highly spec’d studio situated in a tranquil, yet accessible country location in the French countryside.
“The Audient ASP8024 console is exactly what we were looking for because it suits the way we work in both the analogue and digital domains. We use a wide range of software and hardware outboard and therefore were after a very transparent console to preserve signal integrity,” explains Jean-Christian. “Its transparency also allows us to use it as a summing unit (with real panoramic faders) and greatly contributes to the overall sound of the final mix.
“The preamps have an excellent dynamic and the EQ strips are more than correct. The routing is very well thought out too.”
