WESTMINSTER, Colorado — On Friday, November 9, HARMAN’s Studer is hosting a Studer Broadcast Academy and open house recording session at Colorado Sound Recording Studios in Westminster, Colorado. From 9 am to 12 pm, Studer will host its Studer Broadcast Academy Vista Foundation course, while the recording session will take place from 1 pm to 4 pm, with 4 pm to 8 pm set aside for listening to the tracks.
The sessions will take place in the newly refurbished Soundcraft Studer truck, which features a range of Soundcraft Studer digital mixing consoles, JBL Professional LSR Series studio monitors and AKG microphones and headphones. With the redesign and refurbishment, the Soundcraft Studer truck can now demonstrate up to six mixing consoles at any one time.
The truck also includes a “mouse hole” that enables wires to be fed through the belly of the truck and patched into the I/O of any of the consoles on board and take feeds from those external sources. Using this mouse hole feature, a live band will be recorded in Colorado Studios and mixed in the truck.
The Vista Foundation introductory module provides a unique opportunity to work with Studer factory experts to learn the basic operating philosophy and signal flow of the Vista mixing system and provide an overview of the surface. It includes plenty of hands-on time with the consoles to enable students to get comfortable with the renowned Vistonics™ user-interface, the layout and operation. Attendees will also learn the role of each segment of the Vista system, from the point of entry at a mic pre, following the signal flow through to bringing that mic to a channel on the surface. This is a perfect module for those completely new to the Vista consoles and even audio, and also for those needing a basic refresher course.
“We are looking forward to hosting the Studer Broadcast Academy and recording session here at Colorado Sound,” said Kevin Clock, Owner of Colorado Sound. “We pride ourselves on providing artists with top-quality recording services using world-class technology, and working with the newly refurbished Soundcraft Studer truck will be a unique way to showcase our facilities and HARMAN equipment.”
