Toronto, Canada (January 9, 2012)—Toronto’s Liberty Studios recently made the transition to HD and 7.1 surround sound production, adding an Aviom Pro16 personal mixing system in the process.
Liberty Studios, a 6,000-square-foot facility now has six Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers located in the live room for artists to create their own personal mixes. Liberty’s presets include a separate instrument on each of the channels, which allows the musicians to pick and choose what they would like to hear most. From there, the studio also uses the system to run audio back to the control room, where they mix on one of five Digidesign consoles.
“We know that Aviom is the go-to company for this type of application,” says John Payne, president of Liberty Studios. “We use the personal mixing system with absolutely every one of our recordings; there’s no way to get through a session without it. It’s one of the most essential pieces of gear on our floor.”
The studio installed an Aviom 6416dio Digital I/O Module to route digital signals to the mixers via an ASI A-Net Systems Interface. The 6416dio is also used to send clock to the studio’s Apogee Big Ben and A-to-D converter. Also in use is Aviom’s A-16D Pro A-Net Distributor, which distributes the A-Net signal and DC power to each of the mixers.
