British musician Kav Sandhu was recording a new album with his band, Blitz Vega, in Los Angeles and New York when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Sandhu returned to the U.K. and set up a project studio to finish recording, installing a Prism Sound Titan audio interface.
Titan is a multi-channel audio interface that offers high quality analog and digital I/O for Mac or Windows PC, explained Prism Sound. It delivers sample rates of up to 192kHz via a USB interface. It was designed for recording professionals who use external hardware devices such as Pro Tools.
According to Sandhu, his project studio is “really nice and basic.” He uses Pro Tools and Logic on his iMac and listens to things through Yamaha and KRK monitors, powered by Yamaha amps, as well as some old school big PA DJ speakers.
“Nothing can replace the vibe of working with a full band, but the Titan has made recording remotely as good as recording vocals and guitar parts separately in any full working studio,” said Sandhu. “It’s great because you can capture something as soon as you get that creative spark. You don’t have to travel anywhere. It’s changed my life because I can capture everything I need, and sometimes it’s better than recording in a recording studio.”
With the band members scattered around the world, producer Will Kennedy ran recording sessions via Zoom and then pulled things together in his studio in Los Angeles. Jagz Kooner in the U.K. then mixed the tracks.
“It was good that a lot of the band’s parts were done before we left L.A. last spring, but since then, I’ve personally been adding vocals, extra guitars and keyboards on the tracks for our forthcoming album and EPs,” Sandhu added.
Blitz Vega will announce the release date of their new album soon.
