Prism Sound’s Titan interface impresses the realest puppet in gaming

Prism Sound’s Titan multi-channel audio interface now takes pride of place in the studio of Reid Stefan, the US-based producer, composer and educator, also known as The Realest Puppet In The Game.

Designed to offer high-quality analog and digital I/O for Mac or Windows PC, the Prism Sound Titan offers sample rates up to 192 kHz via a simple USB interface. With its MDIO interface expansion slot that allows direct connection to Pro Tools|HDX systems, Titan is a popular converter among recording professionals who use external hardware devices but want easy access to sound quality fame of Prism Sound.

Reid’s decision to invest in a Titan was made after hearing the unit in action at Luca Pretolesi’s DMI Studio in Las Vegas, USA. The six-time Grammy-nominated mixing and mastering engineer is Reid’s mentor and has used Prism Sound conversion for many years.

“I figured they must be special if Luca had one in his office,” Reid says. “Music sounds so natural and wide in its rooms, and even in headphones, but having used mainstream consumer interfaces for over 10 years, I wasn’t sure I would ever be able to switch brands or redesign my music stream. work. However, I was very curious to find out what good all-in-one audio interfaces could really sound like, especially since my previous interface was good at everything. I wanted to see if an interface from a company like Prism Sound, specializing in input/output sound quality and conversion, was better.

Reid subjected a Prism Sound Titan to A/B testing against its existing interfaces and performed the test during a recording session with Karra, an artist he has been developing and producing for two years.

“While I was setting up my first session with the Titan, Karra asked, ‘Is it just me or do the headphones and mic sound cleaner than usual?'” explains he. “After recording, I listened through my monitors and could easily hear more stereo width, bass clarity, and fine detail than I had ever heard before in my home studio. The difference was immediately noticeable. We didn’t want to return the demo unit so I bought one for my studio. I must also add that installation and setup was so easy there was almost no nothing. Prism Sound’s Audio Control app is perfectly streamlined for analog gear routing, level control, zero-latency headphone monitoring, and all the essentials. It’s great for recording, producing, and mixing. knowing that you are capturing and controlling everything in the best possible quality.

Originally from New Jersey, Reid is now based in Las Vegas where he records and mixes all of his projects. In addition to producing albums and singles for EDM and Hip Hop artists such as Steve Aoki, Travis Barker, Krewella and Suicide Boyz, Stefan is also the man behind The Realest Puppet, a character originally created to promote his pack brand. of Whole Loops samples. He now uses puppetry to offer tutorials that help people learn the basics of their musical tools so they can improve their production and engineering skills. These generated nearly 300,000 YouTube subscribers and over 194,000 Instagram followers and became a hit with audiences around the world.

Reid also collaborates with Luca Pretolesi on MyMixLab.com – an online tutorial website that offers weekly mixing and mastering tutorials. The Realest Puppet is one of the site’s tutors. Others include Luca, Jon Kong, Scott Banks, Maarten Vorwerk and Henry Fong.

“The Prism Sound Titan is now the centerpiece of my studio, where I record and mix,” adds Reid. “I’ve invested so much in my hardware vocal chain, acoustic processing and monitors that it makes sense to capture everything with the best possible A/D converters. I’m also excited to use my Titan for future Whole Loops sample packs. Having the ability to send my recordings through analog hardware from Ableton is going to make my next drum kit collection look better than ever.
