Audient’s ASP8024 Heritage Edition has been announced as a nominee for the 33rd
Annual NAMM Technical Excellence and Creativity (TEC) Awards in the category of
outstanding technical achievement. Presented by The NAMM Foundation, The NAMM
TEC Awards are bestowed annually in celebration of the pro audio community by
recognising the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind today’s sound
recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and other media.
“This nomination goes to show that David Dearden’s original ASP8024 console design
really has stood the test of time,” said Stephen Flower, Audient’s managing director.
“We have paid homage to the 20-year-old design, to create the Heritage Edition with
its array of new enhancements and features and it is high praise indeed for it to have
been recognised by the NAMM Foundation.”
The nomination announcement follows a two-month call for entries of standout
technical and creative products and projects that have made a significant impact on
modern sound and music. A panel of respected industry voters from pro audio
publications as well as members of professional music, technical and creative
organisations, along with select NAMM members carefully evaluated each entry before
selecting Audient’s Heritage console for the nomination.
The Heritage has already found favour with high profile studios such as Miloco’s The
Bridge and Cenzo Townshend’s Decoy Studios, at Oslo’s Concert Hall, in education
facilities including the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM), Kingston University’s
Visconti Studio, University of Salford, a number of SAE Institutes around the globe
and as far afield as China, Russia and Australia.
The NAMM TEC Awards will be held in conjunction with The NAMM Show on Saturday,
January 27 in Anaheim, California.
