Focusrite In The Studio With Chris Lord Alge



Chris Lord Alge is a true master mixer, having worked with the likes of Green Day, Muse and Black Eyed Peas. Chris had been on the look out for a digital platform that delivered the same sound quality as his Sony 48 track (x2!) tape decks and stopped when he came across Focusrite's RedNet system. When someone with such golden ears gives the thumbs up you know it delivers incredible sound. It's the D/A conversion that Chris was particularly focused on, being given a lot of mix projects with tracks and stems in digital format already. Plus when you're using as much outboard studio gear as he is then it's crucial all stages of the digital conversion process sound sweet.

Focusrite are renowned for having some of the best AD/DA conversion in the business and Chris Lord Alge is just one of the professionals who rely on it every day for great sound when recording, mixing and playing live.
