Producer and engineer Elliot Mazer has been digitally remixing some of Frank Sinatra’s recordings using Euphonix’s high-quality Model Two Processor converters. Set for DVD-Audio are a live unreleased Rat Pack session recorded in the early ’60s in Chicago, the Sinatra/Jobim collaboration and September of my Years.
“The Model Two provides the best digital conversion you can get, bar none,” Mazer said. “I’ve run a lot of A/B comparisons in the past with other converters including the Pro Tools|HD and the Model Two clearly comes out on top.”
The Sinatra transfers are done from 3, 4 and 8-track masters through four Models Two converters (8-track) into Pro Tools|HD where they are remixed and then digitally transferred back through the Model Two into a Sonic Solutions for 5.1 mastering. Mazer rented his Model Twos, Pro Tools|HD rigs and Ampex ATR-104 recorders from Doug Botnick’s Burbank, Calif.,-based Digital Music Technologies
