Meeting Topic:Tales from the Transition — A Console on the Edge
Moderator Name:Kerry Haps
Speaker Name:Frank Wells - Currently: Editorial Director of *Pro Audio Review* magazine.
As an early adopter of sample accurate digital editing, digital processing chains in mastering, full-spectrum monitoring, digital multi-tracks, and in-house customization of gear, Masterfonics Studios in Nashville championed quality audio and helped lead the digital revolution. Using the facility as a case study, the discussion will cover lessons learned on analog audio paths, digital conversion, timing, latency and delay compensation. A lead character in the tale will be a particular SSL 4000E console that bore the brunt of the studio's pursuit of audio excellence, from replacement of many thousand components to being relegated to the role of controller through a marriage with the ATT DisQ digital mixer core.
