Singapore (May 25, 2010)–Singapore’s LaSalle College of the Arts has installed a 48-channel SSL Duality console, with one Delta Link and two Alpha Link units.
LaSalle offers a range of diploma and degree programs covering dance, design, fine arts, film, media arts, music and theatre arts. Housed in Studio C201 at its School of Contemporary Music, Duality is used throughout work for the program.
“Duality gives us a versatile platform that can easily handle the different needs of each area of study, as students from all specialties take courses in music production and work with Duality,” says Justin Hegburg, lecturer, School of Contemporary Music, LaSalle College of the Arts. “We also offer a specialist music technology program that enables our students to move to a deeper technical level. These students become music technicians who go on to careers as professional recording engineers and live sound mixers. We also have composers learning on Duality who can design sound for installations, dance and theatre productions, and film, in collaboration with our school of film at LaSalle. SSL has long been an industry standard and a top choice for professional studios around the world and Duality gives our students the marketplace advantage of having trained on this premiere console.”
In order to provide students with the understanding of basic signal flow, LaSalle decided to go with a large format analog console with a patch bay as opposed to a controller for the resident Pro Tools|HD 3 and Pro Tools 8 systems. Duality uses the two Alpha Link and one Delta Link units to connect into the Pro Tools systems. According to Hegburg, Duality provides the program with a workflow platform. The resident DAW control allows instructors to teach both the fundamentals of analog signal flow as well as high-resolution DAW control.
