Burbank, CA (February 19, 2004)–Chace Productions has installed a Harrison SeriesTwelve mixing console in the THX-certified Rick Chace Theatre. Chace will employ the Harrison SeriesTwelve for final mixing of a variety of audio preservation, restoration, and re-mastering projects.
The digitally controlled, analog console features 80 inputs and offers complete, real-time, dynamic automation. The control surface is notable for being designed to provide engineers with a traditional, easy-to-operate work surface, which can be configured to control hundreds of analog or digital channels. The Chace Harrison is configured as a layered console, with a smaller footprint ideal for one or two person mixes. The Harrison SeriesTwelve replaces the LaFont Chroma mixing board that previously occupied the theater.
The THX-certified Rick Chace Theater is one of the facility’s preeminent mixing rooms. Many celebrated films, including The French Connection, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, and Bridge on the River Kwai, have been re-mastered within its walls.
The Harrison SeriesTwelve possesses unrivaled bussing capacity, in-place automation, customizable filing structure, and full array of channel and function libraries to establish and recall console setups. Several software plug-ins for individual feature upgrade and enhancement are available, and the board also offers Chace audio engineers a myriad of console options, off-the-shelf computer technology, enhanced joystick and trackball functionality, and invisible auto-save functions.
“Offering our clients the best talent and technology available is central to the mission that Chace Productions has set forth,” affirmed Chace president Bob Heiber. “Along with our proprietary Chace Digital Stereo processor, the installation of the Harrison SeriesTwelve will help define the facility’s unique array of service offerings and allow us to provide the best possible audio restoration, preservation and re-mastering resources.”
