LASALLE COLLEGE OF THE ARTS CHOOSES SOLID STATE LOGIC DUALITY CONSOLE FOR TEACHING

Duality Used with Alpha Link and Delta Link Units

SINGAPORE – LASALLE College of the Arts has chosen a 48-channel Solid State Logic Duality console, with two Alpha Link units and one Delta Link unit, as the centerpiece of its School of Contemporary Music technical courses. Based in Singapore, LASALLE offers the most comprehensive range of diploma and degree programs in the region covering dance, design, fine arts, film, media arts, music and theatre arts. Housed in Studio C201, Duality provides the flexible signal flow, DAW control and high quality sound necessary for this excellent program.

“Duality gives us a versatile platform that can easily handle the different needs of each area of study, as students from all specialties take courses in music production and work with Duality,? says Justin Hegburg, lecturer, School of Contemporary Music, LASALLE College of the Arts. “We also offer a specialist music technology program that enables our students to move to a deeper technical level. These students become music technicians who go on to careers as professional recording engineers and live sound mixers. We also have composers learning on Duality who can design sound for installations, dance and theatre productions, and film, in collaboration with our school of film at LASALLE. SSL has long been an industry standard and a top choice for professional studios around the world and Duality gives our students the marketplace advantage of having trained on this premiere console.?

In order to provide students with the understanding of basic signal flow, LASALLE decided to go with a large format analog console with an extensive patch bay as opposed to a controller for the resident Pro Tools®|HD 3 and Pro Tools 8 systems. Duality uses the two Alpha Link and one Delta Link units to connect into the Pro Tools systems. According to Hegburg, Duality provides the program with a well-organized workflow platform alongside powerful features and a clean signal path. The resident DAW control allows instructors to teach both the fundamentals of analog signal flow as well as high-resolution DAW control.

“The direct benefits of Duality as a teaching tool are vast,? states Hegburg. “Duality gives us a platform that can handle any of the multitudes of different projects we run through the console. The DAW HUI and Mackie control protocols allow us to combine the best of analogue signal flow and DAW control in one console. This makes the learning experience easier for both instructors and students as we do not need to teach several different console surfaces to accomplish what Duality gives us. The flexible bus architecture is accessible for teaching basic signal flow, yet powerful enough to explore more complex work flows. Duality also offers 5.1 surround capabilities that allow us to expand in that direction in the future.?

Hegburg explains that he has had personal experience with the 4000 E, 4000 G and 9000 K series consoles in the past, so Duality is a continuation of this experience. Says Hegburg, “Our students are using equipment that the top studios in the world use, so their experience with Duality gives them the best preparation they can have as graduates.?
