London-based DJ and producer Sharooz has equipped his project studio with Prism Sound’s Orpheus FireWire computer interface.
Sharooz has worked with many internationally acclaimed artists, tackling remix projects for Moby, Robyn and Craig David. As a producer, he has recorded for some of the world's best-known dance labels and, as a DJ, performed in clubs all over the world. He also writes music for TV, film and video games and his work has appeared on MTV and in games by Electronic Arts.
“I'm a strong believer in buying UK brands and supporting the pro-audio industry in this country,” he said. “Prism Sound’s products fitted all my criteria so I bought an Orpheus FireWire computer interface. This is ideal because I'm increasingly mixing and doing my own mastering 'in the box', so it made perfect sense to have the best possible quality D/A conversion and clocking.”
Alongside his production and writing activities, Sharooz is also co-owner of Sample Magic, a company he established in 2006 with fellow producer, remixer and composer David Felton. Sample Magic supplies copyright-free 24-bit samples and loops for a musical genres, recorded and mixed by professional producers and programmers. Sample Magic’s releases have won the Remix magazine Product of the Year award, among other accolades.
“I have a project studio in central London, which acts as a hub for all my production work and writing,” he added. “The studio is equipped with a Macbook Pro i7 running Cubase 5.5. This now goes through the Orpheus and into Focal Twin 6 speakers. I've never heard music sound so clear and detailed. This is my first piece of Prism Sound equipment, but it’s definitely not my last.”
