Tomball, TX (July 22, 2009)--Digital Services Recording Studio recently replaced its aging SSL 6000 series console with a new 48-channel Duality console.
"The studio got a lot of great service out of the old SSL 6000, but the time had come to move into the modern age," says Charles Ray, who acquired Digital Services Recording Studio in 2007. The studio has enjoyed a long history of providing a professional recording environment to top artists as varied as The Rolling Stones, Barbra Streisand, the Houston Symphony, Destiny's Child and Chamillionaire, to name a few.
"Upgrading to a Duality let us retain the lineage of SSL while addressing the way musicians create and record today. The Duality provides huge advantages over every other console we considered. Besides the great sound, it's smaller than our old 6000, it runs on much less power and it doesn't need a machine room. The Duality is also a real professional console and not just a control surface for a DAW. We are in the business of high level sound production and the Duality delivers."
The Duality control room services sessions in Studio A, which has four live rooms. It is not unusual for Digital Services to employ all four rooms to capture a performance.
"Our Duality has been in service for several months and everyone who has used it has been extremely happy," Ray explains. "The first session on the Duality was with the Grammy Award-winning artist Chamillionaire and the sound was fantastic. We have a lot of major acts in Studio A and the results of the sessions have been very impressive."
He adds, "I really appreciate working with the Duality because I have level control of our extensive Pro Tools rig right next to the analogue signal on the console, so my attention can be focused on the music and not the technology."
