Secret Sound (Los Angeles), the personal recording facility for composer/producer Chas Sandford, has recently installed a Lexicon 960LD Multichannel Digital Effects System. The 960LD, purchased from Professional Audio Design in Rockland, Mass., complements the facility’s Digidesign Pro Tools|HD 7 system, which features 48 channels of 192 I/Os and a 32-fader ProControl system with Edit Pack.

Sandford, who has produced tracks for artists including Chicago, Stevie Nicks and Roger Daltrey, as well as penned hit songs such as John Waite’s "Missing You," said that he has been an ardent fan of Lexicon reverbs for many years. "I’ve always loved the way Lexicon reverbs sound," Sandford said. "No other outboard processor sounds as natural as a Lexicon. So as my recording system evolved and grew, I knew I wanted a 960L to keep up with it.

"A lot of plug-ins are great," Sandford continued, "but on any digital audio workstation system, it’s hard to allocate the processing power needed to make great, dense-sounding reverb effects. The 960L is a digital box that does exactly that, and since they made a version without the analog I/Os, I can access that kind of DSP quality at a more cost-effective price."
