Merging Technologies' Horus Plays Nicely With Avid Pro Tools
T

he spe c tacular Futura
Productions recording studio
in the Roslindale neighbourhood
of Boston plays host to a huge
variety of sessions.
This former Masonic Hall with
its grand appearance is used
for recording music as varied as
classical, pop, rock, jazz, folk,
choral, world music, film and video
game scoring and even music from

the Ottoman Empire! ProducerEngineer John Weston moved his
company to the hall in 2003, set
up his massive Pro Tools rig along
with all his other studio gear. It
is tremendously busy, averaging
between 300 to 400 recording
sessions per year.
With a 38' x 60' x 22' main
recording room, iso rooms,
variable acoustics, a Steinway

Futura Productions studio recording session

9' concert grand piano, and a
large control room with video
and surround mixing, the studio
is able to handle many different
kinds of projects.
Looking to update his studio
in early 2014, John upgraded
his Pro Tools HD system to HDX
and purchased Merging's Horus
Networked Audio converter.
Local Boston resident and
Grammy award winning producerengineer Jesse Lewis came to
Futura in 2013 to record Yo Yo
Ma's Silk Road Ensemble and
brought in his Pyramix MassCore
equipment with a 40 input Horus.
Before the session started, the
first thing that was apparent to
John was how easily Pro Tools
could be connected to the Horus
via MADI to run as a backup recorder. When recording
commenced, the sonic difference
was immediately noticeable to
engineers and musicians alike.
"A veil had been lifted" and Horus
with AD8DP and DA8P converters
had been added to the Futura
upgrade shopping list.
John says: "Once I heard the
preamps and converters, I knew
the Horus had to be a central part
of the new system". Delivery of

the 32in/16 out Horus coincided
with the release of Merging's
CoreAudio driver which allows
extremely easy integration with a
Mac laptop. "This meant that not
only could I use the Horus in my
main system, but it would also
allow me to have a perfect remote
recording solution simply by using
the Horus, a MacBook Pro running
Pro Tools, and a CAT6 cable."
The debut project for Futura's
Horus was a string and brass
scoring session for 'Kikaider
Reboot', a Japanese tokusatsu
superhero action movie.
John says: "Everyone, from
the composer to the conductor,
film director and myself was
immediately impressed with the
beautiful sound and clarity that
was coming from the Horus".
Since then, the Horus has been
used on almost all of Futura's
projects, including a jazz chamber
recording "absolutely amazing on
percussion and piano", and an
intimate recording of Ottoman
Mevlevi Sufi music featuring voice,
çeng (Turkish harp) and cura (a
long-necked lute).
"Whether I'm recording at 44.1K
or 96K or 192K, the sound of the
Horus is wonderful," says John.
