FULL SAIL ADDS SSL DUALITY SE CONSOLE
The expansion is part of the Full Sail Gateway Studios project which encompassing a game production studio, a live performance hall, and a new recording studio. The Duality joins three SSL J Series, 13 SSL AWS 900+ and seven SSL Matrix consoles which give students varying levels for study.
The Duality SE control room overlooks a large studio space with associated isolation booth, which can accommodate a small orchestra. It’s also connected to the 500-seat, multi-purpose performance venue.
“The new Duality SE allows us to bring in an act the size of the Orlando Symphony and be able to track 72 microphones to any capture format, digital or analog,” notes Darren Schneider, course director for session recording at Full Sail University. “This console also represents a giant leap in sound quality through the addition of the VHD pre amps. Being able to track clean and then mix back through the VHD circuit gives our students an extremely wide pallet of sound choices right on the console. We have the VHD modules in our multiple SSL XLogic X-Rack systems that are associated with all our mix consoles, so the students are very familiar with the sonic power these pre amps offer.”
