Dublin-based Masterlabs has invested in a Prism Sound Lyra audio interface, which it is using in conjunction with its SADiE 6 digital audio workstations. The facility has attached Lyra to its analogue tape machines and Dolby units where it is performing dedicated high end stereo A-D/D-A conversion. This configuration allows Masterlabs to capture 192kHz files and feed them directly into its SADiE 6 workstations. Masterlabs’ founder and managing director Aidan Foley said: “Prism Sound’s new Lyra audio interface is fantastic. Apart from being incredibly easy to use, it is providing us with very high quality audio conversion and an extremely stable clock. By keeping it separate from my mastering chain A-D/D-A converters, I can use it directly at the analogue source.” Masterlabs operates from a purpose built facility that was designed from the ground up to meet exacting specifications. Since its formation in 1996, initially under the name of Digital Pigeon Mastering, the company has tackled mastering projects for some of the best Irish and International talent. Prior to acquiring a Lyra, Foley put the unit through a shoot-out against other renowned converters to ensure that he was making the right choice. “We already own a number of Prism Sound products, including a Maselec MEA-2 mastering equalizer and a Maselec MLA-2 mastering compressor limiter, so we knew from experience that the company’s products were well made and extremely reliable. This reputation for engineering excellence was one of the key reasons why we chose Lyra for our facility.” www.prismsound.com
