In ‘Hope’ Robert Len and producer André Perry’s musical approach provides an admirable example of Count Basie’s motto “Less is more”. Composer, arranger and multi instrumentalist, Robert Len continues to explore the universe of sound. The album was recorded and mixed at Apollonia Studio using the Merging Technologies Horus Analog to Digital Converter at a resolution of DSD 256 (11.2 Mhz).
With exceptional talent and artistic finesse, he delivers an album in which each musical element selected is essential. In ‘Hope’ everything has its place. The intelligence of producer Perry’s production style is palpable. Len and Perry succeeded in creating an extraordinary acoustic balance in which the exclusion of one small component could compromise an arrangement’s effectiveness. Just as the addition of one ingredient could weigh it down.
Robert Len tells us “Hope’ is much more than merely the fruit of a second tight collaboration. We succeeded in developing a unique sound using 4 trombones, 4 French horns, a flugelhorn, trumpet, muted trumpet, various flutes, acoustic guitar, various electric guitars with country, rock, R&B styles, not to mention a variety of percussion instruments.”

The mastering chain consists of a selection of high-end vacuum tube equipment which includes a modified vacuum tube NAGRA HD dac (DSD) making it possible to obtain a real analog sound from a digital master. The 2xHD FUSION mastering system is powered by a super capacitor power supply, using a new technology that lowers the digital noise found in the lowest level of the spectrum; something that was not possible before. The resulting signal is then transformed into high resolution formats by recordingit in DSD11.2kHz using Merging Technologies’ Horus A to D converter, which is also powered by a super capacitor power supply. All analog and digital cables are the most state of the art available today.
