Cambridge, UK (November 2, 2017)—The Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in Manchester, England, has increased its inventory of Prism Sound ADA-8XR multichannel audio converters to nine with the recent addition of new three units.
RNCM recently added to its audio facilities by transforming a former studio theatre into a rehearsal and recording area where students, particularly those in its four-year BMus Degree in Popular Music, can create and capture amplified and electronic music. Although the college doesn’t run sound engineering degree courses, it does offer some music production modules that give students access to the equipment in its recording studios. “Primarily our studios are used to record music performed by students and we have engineering staff on hand to do that,” says David Coyle, recording engineer at RNCM.
Built at a cost of £850,000, the new studio’s control room is equipped with an Avid Pro Tools HDX system, Neve and API preamps and a large selection of outboard equipment.
The new Prism Sound ADA-8XR converters have been supplied with the company’s 8C-PTHDX I/O modules, which each provide eight channels of audio input and output on bus connections compatible with Avid’s HDX/Digilink interface for Pro Tools systems. Prism Sound has agreed with RNCM to maintain and upgrade the converters to the latest specifications as the products evolve in future.
