Today we wanted to share an article highlighting Merging Technologies‘ Pyramix digital audio workstation. The workstation was used for mastering Britten’s Orchestra, and is used frequently by Britten’s Orchestra producer David Frost.
King of the hill amongst the Pyramix-using winners at the prestigious ceremony was US-based classical producer David Frost who picked up no less than four Grammys during the evening. Next to country group Lady Antebellum, who bagged five awards, Frost was the single winner of the most awards this year at the 2011 ceremony.
In addition to winning the coveted Grammy for Classical Producer of the Year, David won awards in the categories Best Choral Performance and Best Classical Album for CSO Resound’s recording of Verdi’s Requiem, conducted by Riccardo Muti and performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, which he produced.
He also won an award as Surround Producer of Reference Recordings’ Britten’s Orchestra, conducted by Michael Stern and performed by the Kansas City Symphony. The Verdi album was recorded, edited and mastered on Pyramix, while Britten’s Orchestra was mastered using the workstation.
David Frost commented: “I was really thrilled about my recent Grammy Awards and I’ve been very fortunate to collaborate with so many great artists, organisations and engineers. We all depend on each other and on a variety of tools. I’ve used Pyramix extensively to record, edit, mix and master my projects for years now, and I’ve always gotten great results. The editing is among the best I’ve ever seen and I depend on it every day. I think it’s an excellent system, and I am very glad to have it.”
