— On Friday, November 9,
HARMAN’s Studer is hosting a Studer Broadcast Academy and open house recording
session at Colorado Sound Recording Studios in Westminster, Colorado. From 9 am
to 12 pm, Studer will host its Studer Broadcast Academy Vista Foundation
course, while the recording session will take place from 1 pm to 4 pm, with 4
pm to 8 pm set aside for listening to the tracks.
will take place in the newly refurbished Soundcraft Studer truck, which
features a range of Soundcraft Studer digital mixing consoles, JBL Professional
LSR Series studio monitors and AKG microphones and headphones. With the
redesign and refurbishment, the Soundcraft Studer truck can now demonstrate up
to six mixing consoles at any one time.
The truck also
includes a “mouse hole” that enables wires to be fed through the belly of the
truck and patched into the I/O of any of the consoles on board and take feeds
from those external sources. Using this mouse hole feature, a live band will be
recorded in Colorado Studios and mixed in the truck.
The Vista Foundation introductory module provides a unique
opportunity to work with Studer factory experts to learn the basic operating
philosophy and signal flow of the Vista mixing system and provide an overview
of the surface. It includes plenty of hands-on time with the consoles to enable
students to get comfortable with the renowned Vistonics™ user-interface, the
layout and operation. Attendees will also learn the role of each segment of the
Vista system, from the point of entry at a mic pre, following the signal flow
through to bringing that mic to a channel on the surface. This is a perfect
module for those completely new to the Vista consoles and even audio, and also
for those needing a basic refresher course.
looking forward to hosting the Studer Broadcast Academy and recording session
