Los Angeles, CA (October 13, 2016)—The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music has opened a new high-end recording studio featuring a new 72-channel SSL Duality Delta hybrid console.
The facility, which encompasses a 1,400-square-foot live room, is located in the school’s new Mo & Evelyn Ostin Music Center and is available to all of the school's faculty and students to produce creative and academic projects.
"The range of experience of those who come into the studio varies quite a bit, from those who are very studio-savvy to those who have never been in a recording facility before,” said Vanessa Parr, formerly of The Village recording studio, who recently joined the school as studio recording engineer. “I help out as necessary—just recording, or giving guidance on how to work in a studio, or production advice.”
Parr is a newcomer to the Duality console, but quickly got up to speed. "I found the Duality pretty easy to navigate once I leaned a few key functions; SSL has been great about offering me support whenever I have questions,” she said. "I really appreciate the dual functionality of it. It's an analogue desk but it's also a DAW controller. I love being able to flip over and see all my Pro Tools faders."
The new recording studio has been booked since it opened in April.
