Los Angeles based producer and composer Carlos Rodgarman has installed an AMS Neve Genesys Black console in is private studio in Los Angeles.
Within months of installing the G16 desk, Rodgarman was so impressed by its power, flexibility and the way it streamlined his workflow that he upgraded to a G48 by adding a 16 channel expansion module. He also took the opportunity install the Neve GenesysControl Plugin and Neve 88R EQ hardware.
“To say I am blown away by this console is an understatement,” Rodgarman says. “The combination of Genesys Black and GenesysControl has completely revolutionised the way I work. I get all the benefits of Neve’s fabulous analogue EQ and dynamics without having to sacrifice any of the convenience of working ‘in the box’. It is transformative – just saying I have a Neve console is impressive because my clients understand the brand’s audio quality and pedigree.”
Originally from Spain, Rodgarman moved to America 18 years ago to pursue a career as a musician. As a talented pianist, he worked with many artists including Celine Dion, All-4-One, Prince Royce, Jonathan Butler, Sheila E, La India and many more.
