Mothership lands in Hong Kong
HONG KONG: Burl Audio toured America and Asia for The Flight of the Mothership, a series of studio demonstrations highlighting its new Bad8 eight-channel ADC card for the B80 and B16 Motherships. The final stop of the tour was at Hong Kong’s Avon Studio, where the manufacturer teamed with its local distributor Budee to organise the demonstration.
Budee invited recording sound engineers from around Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Burl Audio sales manager Will Kahn set the gain level of each fader on the studio’s Neve 8068 console to ensure there was no difference in level between all 16 tracks played through the Mothership and Pro Tools. The demonstrations showcased the difference between various AD/DA conversions. Rich Williams, Burl Audio president, also discussed the system’s design and together with Mr Kahn, took part in a Q&A session.
‘It was a very successful event,’ said Patrick Lau, sales director at Budee. ‘We connected all several engineers from the regional music industry with Burl and they really appreciated the tone characteristics of the Mothership B80.’
