Mountain View, CA (September 22, 2009)–Missouri-based Webster University, an internationally recognized private liberal arts school, has installed a Euphonix S5 Fusion for their Audio Engineering and Communications program.
The 16-fader S5 Fusion is a professional mixing package that provides a fusion of Euphonix’ new processing DSP engine with EuCon, a high-speed Ethernet control protocol that enables the console surface to control its own DSP channels as well as channels from multiple external DAWs simultaneously, allowing students to learn and operate various software applications in a real studio setting for both music and audio post production.
“We considered all the options to upgrade our digital studio, and the Euphonix S5 Fusion emerged as the obvious choice. The high quality audio and the versatility of the Fusion combine to make it the ideal centerpiece to our renovated studio,” explained Gary Gottlieb, program coordinator and associate professor of audio production, Webster University. “I love the flexibility within the console, offering every option we need, as well as the flexibility in the way it integrates all our existing software and hardware.”
“The room needed to be not only a Mastering Studio, but also a venue in which to teach surround sound engineering,” said Lee Buckalew, Webster University adjunct professor and president of Pro Sound Advice, Inc., the company tapped to integrate the Euphonix into the studio. “When Pro Sound Advice, in conjunction with Ozark Pro Audio and Video, laid out all the options to university officials, without hesitation they picked the S5 Fusion. Its tight digital integration and future expandability made the console the ideal choice.”
“The S5 Fusion was only way to go. It’s everything we wanted; it sounds phenomenal; it’s able to run any of our software applications,” added Paul Hennerich, freelance engineer and adjunct professor for Webster University.
