New York, NY (June 21, 2010)–Manhattan facility The Cutting Room Studios has installed a 48-channel Solid State Logic Duality SE console in Studio A.
The Duality allows the studio–which has featured a who’s who client list over the years that includes everyone from Aerosmith, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jon Bon Jovi and Run DMC to Black Eyed Peas, Justin Bieber and Gavin Degraw–to address the needs of high-end projects while bringing sterling sound and control to project studio-type productions, the other mainstay of The Cutting Room Studios.
“When you look at the industry today, there is no longer only one source you can depend on to keep the doors open,” says David Crafa, owner of The Cutting Room Studios. “Duality is a console that retains the great SSL SuperAnalogue sound quality that is so appealing to high-end clients, while giving us integrated control of DAWs to match how everyone works today. We offer both Pro Tools and Logic systems, as these platforms are what composers and musicians use to create music. As the recording industry continues to change, Duality allows us to service the big projects, while generating appeal for the smaller budget projects that might have started in a project studio environment. Duality helps us reach a wider market and that is good for the bottom line.”
Crafa is no stranger to SSL as through the years he has installed an SL 4000 G+ and an SL 9000 J console. In addition to Studio A, The Cutting Room Studios has two producer suites, a separate mastering studio and Studio B, an all purpose tracking/mixing room. Crafa continues, “The signature sound of an SSL console has served us well and it is huge that we don’t need a dedicated machine room with massive cooling any longer as Duality is self-contained.”
