Fabio Lendrum Trusts Prism Sound To Deliver High Quality Results
The acclaimed producer and engineer has now invested in a Prism Sound Lyra 2 Audio Interface for his Studio 255 in London.
Cambridge, UK. September 11th 2017: A growing realisation that he wanted to create higher quality mixes and masters for his clients proved to be all the push producer and songwriter Fabio Lendrum needed to invest in a Prism Sound Lyra 2 audio interface.

“It made sense to have an interface that would bring me the clarity and quality I needed to meet new standards,” he explains. “I first heard the Prism Sound Lyra at an event at RAK studios in London and while I was there I bumped into an old friend, Matt Schwartz, who invited me to his visit his studio. We got into a very nerdy chat about gear, as producers and engineers always do, and he said: ‘If you want to play this game, Prism Sound is what you’ve got to get’. I took his advice!”
Lendrum’s new Lyra 2 interface has now been installed in Studio 255, his project studio in London where he records vocals, produces, mixes and masters client projects, as well as teaching music production and DJ’ing.
At Studio 255, the producer and artist always comes first and we work hard to put their ideas and emotions to (digital) paper,” he says. “I have had my own studio for about four years, although it has moved about quite often during that time. I’m now finally settled in Kennington and fully used to the acoustics of my room. The equipment list includes my new Prism Sound Lyra 2, plus various pro audio products from Eve Audio, Avantone, Genelec, Moog, Roland, UAD and Korg.”
As a producer, engineer and songwriter, Lendrum has worked alongside some of the biggest names in music including Dallas Austin (Michael Jackson, Kelis), Rick Nowles (Nelly Furtado, Lykke Li, Stevie Knicks), and Kool Kojak (Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Flo Rida). He is also very familiar with the London DJ circuit having played in all the major clubs such as Fabric, Building Six, XOYO, KOKO, SeOne.
As well as his studio work, Lendrum is also head tutor at Subbass Academy and has written all the Logic Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced level courses as well as the Roland Aira Academy course, which is issued all over Europe.
Although Prism Sound’s Lyra 2 audio interface is designed for a wide variety of audio applications where a high-quality interface is needed, Lendrum is mainly using his as a digital output.
“I haven’t recorded any instruments or microphones through it yet, but I’m using the internal digital clipping, which sounds tasty,” he explains. “The overkill feature isn’t something I’ve used in the past; I love the way it sounds on my masters.”
He adds that he can now hear every nuance of his mixes and masters without any ‘weird’ colouration. “The stereo field feels more natural and the bass is definitely tighter. I paired the Lyra 2 with the Sonarworks Reference 3 and now my mixes are tighter than ever.”
Lendrum is currently focusing on making underground house music and techno but he still mixes and masters a wide variety of music including Hip-Hop and Pop. Whatever he does, his Lyra 2 is being used on every project and has become so indispensable that he says he feels awkward without it.
“It’s so small I can even take it away with me if I need to,” he says. “It doesn’t just sound great, it looks great, too!”
