The recording and processing of military sound effects for audio-visual training places stringent demands on the performance of all equipment in the recording system. Complex waveforms, produced by combinations of non-harmonically related sounds, are frequently used for sound effects in military training in the area of electronic countermeasures, for example. In order to achieve realistic reproduction of these sound effects, the recording equipment utilized in processing field recordings into material suitable for training must not alter the quality of the sounds to any detectable degree. Relocation of the Naval Training Device Center to Orlando, Florida, from its site at Port Washington, New York, required the construction and installation of new recording studio facilities. The ultimate facility equipment goal was to obtain a highly flexible control console-one that would meet both present and future requirements-and yet approach the current state of the art in performance. Reliability and ease of maintenance were also prime considerations. All of these factors governed the selection of each console component.
