Genex Audio recently supplied an array of GX Series High-Precision Multiformat Converters to Digital Music Technologies, one of the West Coast's suppliers of rental systems to the recording, scoring and post-production industries. The converters were used in late February, alongside four Genex GX8500 recorders, during a series of 32-track Direct Stream Digital recordings of Nneena Frelon at New York's Kennedy Center with producer John Newton.
The DMT shipment comprised GXA8 8-channel A/D and GXD8 8-channel D/A converters capable of both 192kHz PCM and DSD conversion. Also supplied were optional AES-format expansion cards, MADI optical and single-cable 192kHz interfaces.
"DMT president Doug Botnick is a longtime Genex fan," said Genex Audio president Kevin Brown, "and is now the proud owner of 80 channels of GX Series converters. Doug has purchased an additional three pairs of the ultraversatile GXA8 and GXD8 converters and has also ordered multiple sets of I/O cards to complement his purchase."
"We carefully evaluate every piece of equipment we plan to own," said Botnick, "by pushing it beyond the manufacturer's testing. Then, when we are fully convinced that the units will withstand the hard life any rental item experiences day-to-day in studios, scoring stages and post facilities, we offer it to our clients."
DMT's GX Series converters were also used in mid-March to record Jerry Goldsmith's scorefor Timeline, directed by Richard Donner, with session engineer Bruce Botnick at Paramount Stage M.
