Asheville, NC (July 12, 2011)--Sound Temple Studios in North Carolina has installed an SSL Matrix console and Alpha-Link audio converters.
"The name 'Sound Temple' is quite representative of the vibe," explains studio owner Robert George. "It was designed and built as a sacred place to make music as well as a world-class recording studio. I employed Wes Lachot for the project, who some consider as the Jedi of studio design--he has quite a reputation! He is into feng shui and there is a clockwise flow of energy when you are making music here that people feel and appreciate."
At Sound Temple's heart, Robert has installed an SSL Matrix. "For one thing, I needed a draw to the studio," he explains. "The first question people ask is 'What sort of console or workstation do you have?,' so having a console that people are going to want to work on was on the top of my list for Sound Temple. Having an SSL was the obvious choice and Matrix has the right price point, it has the right features, it's an amazing controller and it's just flawless--it really is bulletproof."
"I haven't exhausted all of the features yet," Robert continues, "but it has integrated great in the studio and does exactly what I want it to do. One feature I use all of the time is the zero-latency monitoring, which is very cool, but I guess the best feature really is the sound. Hearing a mix through the Matrix, mixing through the Matrix and tracking through the Matrix gives me the sound that a record needs to have."
