8-Channel 24Bit/192kHz AD/DA converter with LT-HD card installed
JULY 15, 2014 - COSTA MESA, CA Aurora 16VT converters from Lynx Studio Technology were used for the transatlantic recording and mixing of the new album by Morrissey, “World Peace is None of Your Business”. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli, tracking was done at the beautiful La Fabrique studio in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. Overdubbing and final mixing were completed at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles.
Aurora 16VT converters have been in use at La Fabrique for many years and provided Chiccarelli with the clarity and response required for tracking the Morrissey sessions.
“ It was after testing different other converters that we finally decided to buy Aurora. As an engineer I’m very satisfied and regularly track and mix with very good results,” according to Hervé le Guil, La Fabrique’s owner. "
