New York's Hit Factory has announced the opening of its new 24/96k Studio 5. The room features the Euphonix System 5-M console with 100 channels of 24/96k audio and a 48-channel Euphonix R-1 digital recorder.

Troy Germano, CEO of the Hit Factory, stated, "We wanted to offer the absolute purest digital environment to our clients in Studio 5. While 48k audio has been a staple for several years, it's time for us to step up to the 96k standard, so we replaced the Sony Oxford 24/48k console with the Euphonix System 5-M. We believe clients that are familiar with large-frame consoles will make the transition to an all-digital studio seamlessly with the Euphonix System 5-M."

The Hit Factory in New York has catered to some of the world's premiere artists, and its studios are the birthplace of many seminal albums. Stevie Wonder's Songs In the Key of Life, Bruce Springsteen's Born In the USA, John Lennon's Double Fantasy and Paul Simon's Graceland were all created at the Hit Factory. Top artists such as Nelly, Destiny's Child, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and U2 have also visited the studios for their recordings.

"It's great to be partnering with New York's premiere music studio," said Andrew Wild, VP of marketing at Euphonix. "We believe the Euphonix System 5-M is the only choice for high-end digital music recording and mixing and are pleased that Hit Factory feel the same. We are looking forward to some great-sounding records."
