Argentina - Studio owner Jonatan Montes Polack has installed an Audient ASP8024-HE console in his Hard Record Studio based in Arrecifes, a small town near Buenos Aires.
The British desk joins an array of equipment including keyboards, sequencers, instruments, amps and a host of analogue gear. “I was always a big fan of analogue sound, that’s why the studio has quite a bit of it,” says Jonatan.
Originally coming across the Audient brand when his previous desk broke down, he bought himself an iD4 so he could continue working whilst his old desk was fixed. “It was the first time that I had held an Audient product in my hands. As soon as I looked at the package, the construction, the weight and design, I realised that it was really good. I was really impressed with the quality of the components and how substantial and sturdy it was.”
Further investigation led him to local Audient retailer, Planeta Analógico and ultimately the ASP8024-HE console. “Daniel at Planeta Analógico told me about the desk’s advantages, its settings and the excellent price. I had no doubts about buying it instantly, because I already knew the quality standard of the brand.”
A 24-channel ASP8024-HE console complete with integrated patchbay now sits at the heart of Hard Record Studio. “I like everything about this console. It looks really impressive and mixing with it is very pleasant. It commands all the equipment in my studio thanks to the versatility of the patchbay, the connections are really easy to make and the compressor is very good,” comments Jonatan.
Since it opened 13 years ago, Hard Record Studio has seen many different artists come through its doors. Jonatan has recorded a variety of genres from rock to folk music - and everything in between. “Since the Audient console arrived, I have been producing a new artist called Fran Doyen. I see an incredible talent in him and a future in the music business. He is a pop and urban rhythm singer.”
