Winter Park, FL (July 9, 2010)–Full Sail University recently installed the largest SSL Duality SE console in an educational institution as the centerpiece of a new flagship studio, the Audio Temple.
The expansion was part of the Full Sail Gateway Studios project, encompassing a live performance hall, a game production studio and the new recording studio. The Duality joins three SSL J Series, 13 SSL AWS 900+ and seven SSL Matrix consoles to offer a standard user interface for all levels of study.
“We were building a studio called the Audio Temple, so it had to be the best of the best for our students,” says Dana Roun, director of audio programs for Full Sail University. “Our choice of the Duality SE was based on our very positive experience over the years with SSL for product reliability and excellent service and support. A purchase of this magnitude goes way beyond point of sale and we know that SSL will be there for any need. We also considered the longevity of the purchase in terms of industry relevance for the next five to 10 years. The Duality SE met or exceeded all our expectations and we couldn’t be happier with our choice.”
The design philosophy for the new complex was centered on the concept of collaboration between the various media disciplines represented at Full Sail University. To that end, the Duality SE control room overlooks a large studio space with associated isolation booth, which can accommodate a small orchestra, and is connected to the 500-seat, multi-purpose performance venue.
