First Chinese Audient Heritage heads to Music King Studio
CHINA: Audient’s ASP8024 Heritage Edition mixing console is making its Chinese debut following the purchase of the first unit by Shanghai’s Music King Studio. The 24-channel analogue desk forms the centrepiece of Music King’s latest studio upgrade.
The studio has associations with both Sing! China and The Voice of China, and as such boasts an impressive list of engineers and clients. ‘People who use our studio, or are affiliated with our engineers, are Luca Bignardi, Anthony Kilhoffer, Kanye West, Jay Chou, James Li, Vicki Zhao, Jeno Liu, Della, Darren Wang and lots more,’ explained marketing manager, Mr Lin.
Since its purchase the desk has already made an impression with its first users, including mix engineer, Weiwei Jin, who used Music King Studio for recording and mastering the sound effects for the opening ceremony of Shanghai Disney Resort. This praise is substantiated by Music King Studio’s resident engineer 'Red', who comented that 'the intuitive layout is really user-friendly and can reduce the burden of recording and mastering.’
Of course, the most important seal-of-approval comes from studio CEO Mr Ming: ‘The Audient ASP8024-HE is the dream piece of all the producers here. Not only is it great-looking and easy to use, but the master section is outstanding.’
