Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis Choose SSL AWS 900Legendary production duo installs five new AWS 900?s with Total Recall (November 12, 2004)
With their new private recording facility in Santa Monica due for completion early next year, producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have at least one portion of the studio ready. The production team responsible for a slew of platinum recordings from artists such as Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Usher and many others has taken delivery of five new Solid State Logic AWS 900 Analogue Workstation Systems with Total Recall from GC Pro.
Flyte Tyme, as Jam & Lewiss team is known, is the most successful production duo in contemporary music, with more than 100 gold, platinum and multi-platinum records. With the AWS 900, theyre able to take advantage of two crucial components of their production method: the signature sound of the Solid State Logic SuperAnalogue signal path, and total integration with the DAW platforms they use to create their magic.
Lewis is particularly ecstatic about Flyte Tymes new boards. ?It's nice to finally have a console that seamlessly blends the analog and digital studio world," he says. "The AWS 900 sounds wide, open, and punchy like an SSL should. We are loving it!
?We are very excited about the placement of five AWS 900 consoles with Flyte Tyme, says Rick Plushner, president of Solid State Logic North America. ?Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are clearly at the top of the industry and their interest in the AWS 900 firmly supports our engineering decision to create this console/workstation controller.
While construction of the new studio was being completed, the pair and their long-time staff engineers, Matt Marrin and Ian Cross, took over the third floor of LAs famous Village Recorder studio. The team has already begun using their AWS 900s for recording projects.
GC Pro is the exclusive distributor of the SSL AWS 900 in the United States, and demo consoles have been set up in LA, Chicago, New York, and Miami.
