Public Enemy’s Chuck D. and DJ Johnny Juice Rosado are two of the latest to purchase Tascam’s FW-1884 FireWire Audio/MIDI Interface & Control Surface, incorporating it in their Long Island, NY studio to prep for upcoming shows and a pair of forthcoming albums.
A master scratcher and DJ, Rosado’s handles the production for all P.E. projects, and used a Tascam M-3700 console and MSR-16 multitrack before switching to digital in 1997. He chose the FW-1884 to control their Cakewalk Sonar recording and editing environment. “Juice uses the FW-1884 to combine the elements of old and new equipment in our music without it being a headache,” says Chuck D. “Among everything else he does well, he’s really good at keeping things smooth here.”
Keep an eye out for Public Enemy’s upcoming releases, How Do You Sell Soul To A Soul-less People Who Sold Their Soul? and New Whirl Odor, out late summer and fall 2004, respectively.
The FW-1884 FireWire Audio/MIDI Interface & Control Surface is available through various TASCAM dealers. MSRP: $1599
