Seattle, WA (October 20, 2014)—Robert Lang Studios, a two-room facility serving Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, has upgraded one of its control rooms with an SSL Duality console.
“The Duality room is a game changer for our studio complex,” says Robert Lang. “I’ve been doing a student education program here for several years and we added the Duality to not only serve commercial clients in the Northwest area, but also to attract more students in the school’s advanced courses. There are plans to add Duality to the curriculum for students in the Music Tech Department’s Continuing Education program, providing them the opportunity to work some of the industry’s top gear. Both Shoreline Community College and the City of Shoreline have approached us to solidify partnerships that will bolster the entertainment industry in the greater Seattle area.”
“The flexibility of Duality is amazing,” states Lang. “You have the digital audio workstation control that seamlessly correlates with the analog side. My hat goes off to all the SSL engineers as they really developed something that is far beyond just another console. Being able to have that connection between analogue and digital, with a Pro Tools control set up on the console and the ability for artists and producers to bring a hard drive in and almost instantly start mixing is just unique.
Robert Lang Studios recently played a role in The Foo Fighters’ new album Sonic Highways, set for release on November 10, and the accompanying HBO documentary miniseries, which began airing October 17. The group recorded a song for the album, which was recorded in eight different cities, using the studio’s fully-restored SSL 4000 E Series console.
