Alex ‘Cores’ Hayes is a producer/engineer/writer based in London. He works closely with Professor Green and was executive producer of his two albums “Alive Till I’m Dead” and “At Your Inconvenience”, which both went double gold in the UK. He also MD’s Green’s band. His involvement with Green has seen him work with the likes of Lily Allen, Example, Labrinth and Emeli Sandé. We recently visited his London studio to discuss one of his favourite pieces of kit; the Focusrite ISA 828 mic preamp.
For a limited time only, Focusrite are running their “Forté4free” campaign, offering their Pro Tools (RTAS and TDM) ISA channel strip plug-in, “Forté Suite”, worth $599, free of charge with every hardware product from their ISA range, including the new ISA One.
By the time the doors open at NAMM 2008, the optional eight-channel A-D converter card for Focusrite’s new ISA828 eight channel pre will be available from all good pro audio stores across the globe.
This August sees the unveiling of Focusrite’s new ISA 828 eight channel microphone pre-amplifier. The ISA 828 features eight original ISA transformer based pre amps in a single robust 2U chassis, and offers the Focusrite signature sound at the lowest cost per channel to date.
