Gennert Leans on Lyra 2

Gennert used Lyra 2 while working on LoNero’s The Defiant Machine.

Cambridge, UK (February 27, 2018)—Musician and producer Tim Gennert used his Prism Sound Lyra 2 audio interface on several recent projects at Prairie Sun Recording in Northern California.

Gennert’s career in pro audio spans more than 35 years and covers everything from music, radio, television and film to games and spoken word. Most of his work involves producing, mixing and mastering, but he is also a composer and songwriter. Alongside his own project studio, Gennert has a close association with Prairie Sun Recording, a studio in Cotati, CA, where Tom Waits recorded his GRAMMY-winning albums Bone Machine and Mule Variations.

“In my own studio, I use [Lyra 2] with an analog summing bus that my friend Tim Beach makes at Woven Audio and a pair of Neve 1086 preamps, with everything going through the Lyra 2 into my mix down system. At Prairie Sun, I use it with either an SSL G Series or Neve 80 Series console for mix down.”

Recently, Gennert used Lyra 2, in conjunction with Prairie Sun’s SSL G Series, to mix and master LoNero’s The Defiant Machine, which was named one of the most noteworthy albums of the last 50 years by Guitar Player magazine. He is also producing a new LoNero recording entitled Future Warrior and producing a metal record inspired by the game Doom, with Andy Watters as executive producer.

Other projects include producing Jazz Fly 3, a musical story by children’s book author Matthew Gollub; producing the soundtrack for the film All Stars with composer Nolan Gasser and tackling support work on Nolan Gasser’s latest musical, which is based on the film Benny and Joon and is headed for Broadway.

“Alongside my Lyra 2, I’ve also been using a Maselec MEA-2 EQ to master Logan Magness’ vinyl album, Memphis on My Mind, which I’m mastering in association with Krieg Wunderlich,” Gennert says.
