Chris Babida purchased Weiss EQ1-MK2 / DS1-Mk2 / SFC2
2008 Beijing Olympic Torch Song “Light The Passion, Share The Dream” composer Chris Babida has recently purchased a whole set of Weiss DSP systems, including the EQ1-MK2,  DS1-MK2 and SFC2 hardware sample rate converter. Chris mentioned “I have video taped Kent Poon's mastering demonstrations where he used the Weiss EQ1-MK2 and DS1-MK2 for future reference usage. M/S EQ is a whole new topic to me. The compression and limiting are both extreme transparent. I'm very impressed with sound quality of this combo and Kent's demonstration."
“The Weiss saved my life yesterday because the "Solo" violin recorded in BJ had a very heavy Air Conditioning Sound! And so I thought I had to re record the violin again, but finally I asked A. Cheung to use the Weiss EQ ...and then Magic....he took out the air condition sound! Just like that? Great! “

Avatar Studios Chooses Weiss
The ADC2 Becomes the Featured A/D Converter for the Famed Studio

New York (PRWEB) May 24, 2006 -- AVATAR Studios, New York's premier recording facility, announced the purchase of the Weiss Engineering ADC2 as the featured converter for the studio. Avatar Studios is known for making excellent recordings with vintage analog equipment and has a consistent need for a superb A/D converter to support the use of Pro Tools and other digital tools.

The ADC2 from Weiss Engineering features two independent channels at up to 192kHz / 24 Bit, mic preamps, POW-R dithering, digital input, internal / external syncing, digital limiter, calibrated 1dB step analog attenuator and a high resolution bar graph meter.

Avatar Studios spent several months carefully evaluating a number of A/D converters from different manufacturers, finally selecting Weiss.

The ADC2 has already proven popular and has been used on several prominent projects by seasoned engineers and top artists. Engineer James Farber used the unit to mix a solo project by Tim Ries, the saxophonist for the Rolling Stones. Farber paid the unit a compliment by referring to it as "very transparent".

Other projects the ADC2 was used on include a mix session for John Patitucci's solo project by Joe Barbaria, a mix session for live concert performances by Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden by Carl Glanville, and a mix session for Lou Reed by Chris Shaw. It has also been a favorite for engineer Jim Anderson during his mix sessions for Swiss Jazz Orchestra, Patricia Barber, D.D. Jackson and Bebo Valdez.

Roy Hendrickson, Avatar's Chief Engineer states, "ADC2 is the best sounding converter I have had the opportunity to use in mix sessions here at Avatar. The integrated limiter sounds absolutely fantastic!"

Kirk Imamura adds, "The Weiss ADC2 is the critical and important link between the analog expertise Avatar provides and the digital media where the results are stored and edited. As a high-end studio, we need a high-end solution and this unit fits the bill."

Daniel Weiss commented, "I am happy that Avatar have selected the ADC2 for their A/D Conversion duties. I look forward to working closely with Avatar to see how I can provide more value to what they provide with the technology we have."

Weiss Engineering is a manufacturer of professional and high-end consumer digital audio equipment. Products include A/D and D/A converters, Equalizers, Dynamics Processors, Denoiser / Declicker, Sampling Rate Converters, POW-R Dithering.

AVATAR Studios is a 33,000-square-foot multi-room facility on Manhattan's west side dedicated to providing a complete, top-quality audio recording services solution to the music industry. The studio houses four premier recording rooms containing a Neve 8068, SSL-9000J, Neve VRP and a SSL-4000G+.

At the 112th AES Convention in Munich, which takes place from 10.5.2002 through 13.5.2002, Weiss unveils several new products and software versions.

The EQ1-DYN Dynamic Digital Parametric Equalizer. The EQ1-DYN sports a total of seven parametric bands, four of them can be used in the dynamic mode. The dynamic program dependent boost/cut control adds another dimension to equalizing. For example low levels of the bass can be brought up, while leaving the high levels untouched. This allows for much more control over the tonal balance than an ordinary equalizer does. Click here for more information.

The DAC1-MK2 D/A Converter. This is the enhanced version of the well known DAC1. It can work at a sampling rate of up to 192kHz, whereas the DAC1 works up to 96kHz. Both converters are 24 bit designs with extensive jitter reduction and class A output stages. Click here for more information.

The latest software (V1.3) for the DS1-MK2 Dynamics Processor offers an additional peak limiter and a "Parallel Compression Mode" which substantially lowers compression artefacts and thus allows for a higher loudness at less artefacts. Customer feedback on the new Parallel Compression feature has been overwhelming. Click here for more information.

The newly released HYDRA-C is a de-jittering box for AES/EBU signals. It works at signals up to 96kHz (single or double wire scheme) or even up to 192kHz (double wire scheme). The HYDRA-C can effectively de-jitter signals e.g. ahead of the D/A Converter, resulting in an enhanced sonic performance. Click here for more information!
