London, England, May 28, 2008 â€“ James Lewis, one of the UKâ€™s rising producers, engineers, mixers and songwriters in genres ranging from indie rock to dance, continues to choose Avastorâ€™s HDX-800 triple interface drives for tracking via Pro Tools. Working with such artists as Arctic Monkeys, The Pistolas and Simon Webbe, whose single â€œRide The Stormâ€? was produced and mixed by Lewis and chosen as the main title track for Fantastic Four: Rise of Silver Surfer, itâ€™s no wonder why Lewis required a drive that would outlast the competition.
â€œThe Avastor drives give me the performance I need when tracking and editing during long sessions,â€? says Lewis, who is currently recording the band OK at Mayfair Studios in London, England. â€œI like the professional build specifications; notably the cooling fan and the grounded internal AC power supply. Itâ€™s a well thought out product with pro features that you donâ€™t often see in external FireWire drives.â€?
The ultimate storage solution for audio/video professionals, Avastorâ€™s HDX-800 offers the highest transfer rates for both MAC and PC based workstations with its dual FireWire 800 ports. The HDX-800 drive has storage capacities from 80GB to 1TB in a FireWire 800/400/USB 2.0 enclosure, that is also equipped with an internal 110/220V auto switching power supply and ultra quiet ball-bearing cooling fan.
