Vienna, Austria (February 4, 2016)—Vienna Symphonic Library’s new Synchron Stage Vienna complex, featuring acoustic and architectural design by WSDG, is built on an analog and digital infrastructure from Solid State Logic.
Synchron Stage Vienna is the new large-scale, high-end scoring stage and studio complex built by sample library and virtual instrument developer Vienna Symphonic Library in the Austrian capital. A pair of SSL Duality δelta analog consoles, an L500 Live console, and a high-capacity Dante network via SSL Alpha-Link MX converters and SSL Network I/O products, form the technical backbone of the studio.
The centerpiece of Control Room A is the 96-channel SSL Duality δelta Pro Station console, while Control Room B will house a 48-channel Duality δelta. Monitoring for the musicians in Stage A is managed by an SSL L500 Live console.
According to Bernd Mazagg, technical director and chief audio engineer, the Duality δelta console was chosen for both the A and B control rooms so that clients can easily move between the two spaces, depending on need. This also allows both consoles to be used simultaneously, effectively creating a single 144-channel recording console.
In addition to analog wiring between the control rooms and recording spaces, audio is converted and distributed via a high-capacity, redundant Dante network to all spaces and rooms in the facility for recording and monitoring. SSL Alpha-Link MX 16-4 and 4-16 interfaces do the A/D and D/A conversion, while MADI-Dante bridging and sample rate conversion is handled by SSL Network I/O MADI-Bridges. Pro Tools HD I/O is taken care of by SSL Delta-Link interfaces.
