LIBERTY STUDIOS INSTALLS AVIOM PERSONAL MIXING SYSTEM DURING HD AND 7.1 SURROUND SOUND UPGRADE
LIBERTY VILLAGE, TORONTO, JANUARY 5, 2012--An Aviom Pro16® personal mixing system has become an integral part of Toronto's Liberty Studios' transition to HD and 7.1 surround sound production. The studio recently upgraded its 6,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility, which supports everyone from musicians to filmmakers by providing the technical expertise needed to complete their professional projects.
Liberty Studios makes great use of the six new Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers, which are located in the live room for artists to create their own personal mixes. Liberty's unique presets include a separate instrument on each of the channels, which allows the musicians to pick and choose what they would like to hear most. From there, the studio also uses the system to run audio back to the control room, where they mix on one of five Digidesign consoles.
"We know that Aviom is the go-to company for this type of application," says John Payne, president of Liberty Studios. "We use the personal mixing system with absolutely every one of our recordings; there's no way to get through a session without it. It's one of the most essential pieces of gear on our floor."
In order to ensure that Liberty Studios was a huge contender in the industry, the staff wanted to install only top of the line gear. Payne says this is also why the company chose an Aviom personal mixing system. The studio installed an Aviom 6416dio Digital I/O Module to route their digital signal to the mixers via an ASI A-Net® Systems Interface. The 6416dio is also used to send clock to the studio's Apogee Big Ben and A-to-D converter. Also in use is Aviom's A-16D Pro A-Net Distributor, which distributes the A-Net signal and DC power to each of the mixers.
"With our studio, we were aiming for the type where any producer, engineer, band or artist can absolutely do any task necessary," says Payne. "The Aviom personal mixing system is connect, click, done--it's on your required channel right away. That's why we chose Aviom."
With the Aviom personal mixing system, Liberty Studios has secured the simplicity and ease of use it sought in all of the studio’s gear. Since the A-16II Personal Mixers are the industry standard, the studio's musicians already have working knowledge of the gear.
"The artists like being able to control what they are listening to and they enjoy the opportunity to have a hands-on feel," concludes Payne. "The A-16IIs really allow them to get into the groove because they can adjust the mix to their own liking. If they want their instrument louder, they can do that; if they want something lowered, it is a lot easier for them."
Aviom pioneered personal mixing with its Pro16® Monitor Mixing System and continues to break new ground with the revolutionary Pro64® Series of audio networking products. With tens of thousands of products in the field today, Aviom has set the standard for high performance, scalable digital solutions.
