New York, NY (July 26, 2016)—Engineer/producer Alex Sterling, owner of Precision Sound Studios on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, has upgraded his facility with a new console, wiring scheme, film screens and more.
The studio upgrade, specified by Sterling and implemented by the Malvicino Design Group, also included a new wiring scheme, a large video screen for film and TV post work, and overall layout adjustments and refurbishment. "I have always wanted to create a working space for music production that has the comfort of a person's home or living room but with the technical and professional capabilities of a larger commercial facility,” explains Sterling.
Also updated is the live room space, which sports a library of around 3,000 books. "Believe it or not," says Sterling, "They have an acoustic value as well as an aesthetic value." The live room can host around 15 musicians, which means that Sterling is as in demand for band recording, film, and television work as he is for electronic, pop, and hip-hop mixing and production.
"During my console search, I carefully researched and demoed several other modern consoles, many of which did have some substantial sonic attributes,” said Sterling, who ultimately opted for a 48-channel SSL Dualityδelta Pro Station SuperAnalogue console in Control Room A.
"The integration with the DAW was very important to me, as was the high channel count, and having a full complement of processing available on every channel. I could be spending twice as much to get full filters, dynamics and EQ on every channel with another console, and I still wouldn't be getting any of the DAW control functionality that Duality offers."
