Hasselt, Belgium (May 10, 2013)—Limburg University College has upgraded its PHL Music facilities with an SSL Duality SE console.
The PHL Music program offers a specialty technical degree that culminates with advanced coursework on the Duality. The school's music technology course is a three-year, pop and rock music degree program that offers training for studio and live engineering applications.
"When looking for the best console for our third-year students to complete their education, we looked at all manufactures' products and chose the SSL Duality," said Jorg Sacre, coordinator of the studio engineer program at Limburg University College (PHL Music). "We think it's really important for students to use a straightforward analogue signal flow and in-line ergonomic layout. We recently built two new studios to bring our total to three. Each studio is used to teach analogue signal flow on progressively larger consoles. Duality is the new Rolls Royce among consoles and delivers a big 'wow' factor because it is an SSL. More importantly, the sound is crystal clear and addresses the way artists and engineers in the music industry work, while being easily expandable."
"Our search was comprehensive and took over six months to complete," continues Sacre. "While we looked at digital consoles, we learned that many desks that were very hot for one year, disappeared three years later. It is really important that we educate students on the kind of desk that will be around for decades and that has an infrastructure design philosophy that will continue to be around. This longevity is what we get in the Duality."
