Winter Park, FL (July 26, 2013)—Full Sail University's renovated Studio B has reopened with Argosy Console Spire 9140 Series equipment racks for its collection of outboard gear and X-Stands for its near field monitors.
Full Sail University has a long association with Argosy Console, having installed more than 50 pieces of Argosy furniture in its multi-station lab environments in past years, as well as seven custom-designed Argosy Mirage series desks in its SSL-equipped Recording and Mastering Lab. Numerous Argosy rack units and speaker stands can be found throughout the campus.
"The Argosy furniture looks great in all of the campus environments where it has been installed," says Scott Dansby, administrative operations manager for the Information and Media Technology Department at Full Sail University. "It suits the professional look and feel of the university and our state-of-the-art facilities."
The two new Argosy racks—a three-bay Spire 9143 and a two-bay Spire 9142—house the entire collection of new and vintage analog and digital outboard equipment in the Studio B control room, one of the educational facility's three large-scale recording studios, which also underwent an aesthetic overhaul during the installation of a new large format analog mixing console in early 2013. The new racks house vintage outboard analog processors such as Universal Audio's Teletronix LA-2A leveling amplifiers, as well as newer items from Rupert Neve Designs. The racks also house Summit Audio TLA-100s, UA 1176Ns, Tube Tech PE1Cs and Manley Variable Mu Compressor/Limiter in addition to the room's Avid Pro Tools v10 HDX system.
Full Sail also installed two pairs of Argosy Console X-Stands for Studio B's Dynaudio Acoustics BM15A near field and M2 main monitor speakers.
