We Love Jam love Genesys Black24th November 2014
JAM is a boutique audio production facility dedicated to creating unique sounds. With studios in Sydney and Cape Town, JAM boast a diverse portfolio of work ranging from advertising, TV and film to games and interactive media. Their 5 studio facility based in Cape Town, comprises of a large music room and four post/mixing rooms including a 5.1 room and now includes a Neve Genesys Black G16 console at its heart.
Arnold Vermaak, Sound Designer/Producer at JAM said,
“The Genesys Black has 8x classic 1073’s. 8x 88R eqs and I ordered the dynamics cassette so can also boast 8x VCA compressors as well. The fact that they are all digitally controlled from the touch screen in front of you is just amazing – as is the instant Total Recall™. The scalability of the console is staggering – to be honest I’m still trying to work out the optimal way to work because the set-up options are huge. I have several projects lined up already and the clients are very excited to be working with this console. The permutations are endless. You can work in several different ways – some of which I hadn’t even contemplated before the console was actually in front of me. But in the hybrid world of double click DAW, instant recall with the sound of analogue and the console set up and recall also just a double click away – boom. Best of both.”
Arnold also hopes that the Genesys Black can help put the South Africa based studio on the map – and it’s certainly paying off so far. JAM were recently ranked the Number 1 recording studio in South Africa 2014 for film and television by the Loerie Awards. Arnold stated, “I believe that with this console and the rest of the facility there’s not much we can’t do and do well.”
