— Trinity Sound Company purchases XTA Series 2 C2 compressor
and SiDD multifunction processor for applications ranging from
music recording and mixing, live sound mixing, remote recording —

— XTA gear offers high-end processing quality rivaling
or exceeding that of classic audio equipment —

FARMINGDALE, NY, November 4, 2002
— Trinity Sound Company (TSC) in Ontario, CA has purchased an XTA Series 2 C2 compressor and SiDD (Seriously Intelligent Digital Dynamics) multifunction signal processing system. The acquisitions have allowed TSC to cover their diverse areas of specialty — including music recording, live sound mixing, and remote recording — in an expanded and more efficient way. In particular, the ability of XTA technology to cross so many lines of application and perform well in each of them brings music studios, live sound companies, and other pro audio specialists a new level of accomplishment from a single-source solution.

“I was looking for a product that I could use in my rack in every application,” explains Devin DeVore, Owner of TSC. “I found exactly that with the XTA gear. I use them in the studio, live, and remote sound work. The XTA gear gives me studio-quality processing without the artifacts you get from analog filters and VCA’s. Many times the artifacts of analog gear can mask the pure tone. What I can achieve using the XTA gear is to capture the true tone first, then process it digitally with far less phase artifacts or distortion to color the original sound.”

In fact, adds DeVore, “The XTA C2 ended a long search for a clean, punchy, and tight bass compressor.” The XTA SiDD system has become his “kick and snare” combination in a single box when recording and mixing music, as well as his de-esser, his EQ, and a range of other processing functions. In addition, the SiDD performs well in every live application, such as its use processing the audio from lavalier microphones on a recent MSNBC remote project that TSC handled. “It’s replaced a lot of other boxes for me and given me much better quality at the same time,” DeVore comments.

The flexibility offered by XTA signal processors is becoming more widely realized throughout other branches of the sound business. “XTA is well known in the live sound business, and in the installed sound business, but it’s been a well-kept secret in music recording,” observes David Fishbein, President of Huntington Beach, CA-based Apex Audio, which supplied TSC with the XTA processors. “Well, that’s changing fast. Music engineers are beginning to recognize XTA gear for what it really is: as good at signal processing — and often better — as any other system people normally associate with music studios and music recording. Once they try XTA in the studio, they come back and say, ‘Where has this stuff been hiding?’ You can’t beat XTA quality, and that quality is what lets it work so well in such a wide range of applications, including critical music recording and mixing.”
