Trinity Sound Company (TSC) in Ontario, Calif., has purchased an XTA (Farmingdale, N.Y.) Series 2 C2 compressor and SiDD (Seriously Intelligent Digital Dynamics) multifunction signal-processing system. TSC covers music recording, live sound mixing and remote recording.
"I was looking for a product that I could use in my rack in every application," said Devin DeVore, owner of TSC. "I found exactly that with the XTA gear. I use them in the studio, live and remote sound work. The XTA gear gives me studio-quality processing without the artifacts you get from analog filters and VCAs. Many times, the artifacts of analog gear can mask the pure tone. What I can achieve using the XTA gear is to capture the true tone first, and then process it digitally with far less phase artifacts or distortion to color the original sound."
The XTA SiDD system has become DeVore's "kick and snare" combination in a single box when recording and mixing music, as well as his de-esser, EQ and a range of other processing functions. In addition, the SiDD performs well in live applications, such as processing the audio from lavalier microphones on a recent MSNBC remote project.
