Hilversum, Netherlands (September 30, 2014)—When Wisseloord Studios was renovated, one of the upgrades included the addition of an Aviom A360 personal mixing system supplied by Aviom Benelux distributor, Amptec.
The story of Wisseloord Studios began in 1978, but in 2012, the studio reopened in a large media complex area outside of Amsterdam as a recording and mixing facility. Before the renovations at Wisseloord began, Studios 1 and 2 had a total of 10 Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers. Studios 2 and 4, which house analog consoles, are now home to the studio’s original A-16II Personal Mixers, and Studio 1, which features an Avid/Euphonix System 5 digital console, was upgraded to Aviom’s A360 Personal Mixers. The studio has additional A-16IIs that can be used when and where they are needed.
Rob Sannen, Operations Manager at Wisseloord Studios, says, “Wisseloord chose to stick with an Aviom system because everybody in the business knows what it is. Most session musicians are familiar with Aviom personal mixers, so if you label them correctly, everyone basically knows how they work. This familiarity makes for speed and efficiency and a better experience for everyone.”
