Euphonix announced that DMT Rentals (Burbank, Calif.) has purchased nine Model Two HDCD Processors. Model Two is manufactured, sold and serviced by Euphonix through an exclusive agreement with Microsoft, which acquired the design from Pacific Microsonics.
DMT is run by president and CEO Doug Botnick, who is currently working as a scoring mixer with the likes of Randy Newman and Hans Zimmer. "Our goal at DMT is to bring to the recording and film industries the best that digital recording is capable of. We've always had the best converters available for our clients, and now we have what has become known to many in the mastering world as the ultimate. Recently, we've been seeing more 5.1 music mixing where multiple Model Two converters will really shine. That's one reason we have nine units, so that there are three sets of three available for multiple projects at once."
According to Botnick, the units are being used for stereo mixing and mastering at 176.4k or 192k. Recent projects include Mark Antoine CD with Al Schmitt, by Jack Joseph Puig for albums by the Counting Crows, Johnny Lang, rentals to Neil Young and Bonnie Raitt, and for Disney's The Emperor's New Groove soundtrack.
