Montevideo, Uruguay (June 11 2012)—The Vivace Music recording facility in Montevideo, Uruguay recently opened with an SSL AWS 948 hybrid console/controller in the main control room.
"Until we opened, most of the recording studios in Uruguay have been mid-budget-type facilities," says Cesar Lamschtein, co-owner of Vivace Music. "My partner, Luis Cesio, and I strongly felt the time was right for a high-end facility that could serve national and international artists. The AWS 948 gave us the level of control for our Pro Tools system we needed, while giving us the signature SSL SuperAnalogue sound. Now we can work in both worlds while generating a great sound right from the console."
Vivace Music, designed by Walters-Storyk Design Group (WSDG), has one studio room, capable of holding up to eight musicians, shared by Control Room A and B, along with isolation booths.
"The audio quality of the AWS is second to none, and we find ourselves using outboard pre-amps only for a particular sonic color," Lamschtein explains. "We have also purchased an SSL X-Rack filled with dynamics modules to complete the SSL sonic experience across more channels."
