Originally from Canada, Jeremy Tusz was introduced to Pyramix during his time at McGill University, the Banff Centre, Tanglewood, and during a spell in Europe at Polyhymnia and Galaxy Studios. After returning to Canada and freelancing as an engineer/editor/producer on well over 100 albums, it soon became clear that if he had his own equipment, there were additional recording assignments that could be tackled. Soon after the Merging Horus was introduced in 2012, Jeremy had the opportunity to try one on a session, and he liked what he heard. That led to him purchasing a Horus fitted with 32 input and 8 output channels and two laptops running Pyramix Native. As I/O demands increased for larger orchestral film score work and clients began asking for DXD/DSD capabilities, a Hapi was added along with a PT64 card (for interfacing with a Pro Tools HD Native system), 16 channels of Premium AD and 8 channels of Premium DA to “mix n match” according to the session requirements.

Navigating winter terrain is one of many challenges that ski mountaineering (skimo) athletes face as they maneuver through a series of checkpoints while climbing a mountain and descending on skis. Most train and compete in hopes of gaining entrance into the coveted Skimo World Cup, a series of five races held across Europe and Asia that are sanctioned by the International Ski Mountaineering Federation (ISMF). Part of this series, the Comapedrosa Andorra challenges participants to scale nearly 5,000 feet in elevation from the base of the Pyrenees mountains to the pinnacle of Comapedrosa. For this year’s two-day event, Andorran Mountaineering Federation (FAM) enlisted local production company Imaginaris to produce live feeds for on-site and remote spectators. Using an array of AJA solutions, Imaginaris brought all of the action to a large LED display located at the resort at the base of the mountain as well as to Facebook Live.
