SOLID STATE LOGIC DUALITY FULFILLS DREAM FOR HELIPORT STUDIOS

Spectacular Studio Opens with Plans for Reality TV Show

SUNSHINE COAST, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA – When Allan Pease, the noted author and lecturer with more than 25 million sales worldwide, looked to fulfill his lifelong dream of a return to composing music and performing, he chose a 48-channel Solid State Logic Duality console to be the audio centerpiece of his Heliport Studios on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia. Nestled within 57 acres of rainforest overlooking the western Pacific Ocean, the studio features a wealth of outboard gear, vintage and modern microphones and acoustically engineered spaces, all of which are brought together by Duality. Well beyond a simple private studio, Heliport is bustling with a growing client list and will play host to a new pilot reality TV production that focuses on studio life.

“I built Heliport Studios to provide a technologically advanced, high-quality recording facility where artists not only record, but are also offered a creative haven that nurtures and develops their talent to its full potential, including my own,? says Pease, noting that while this is a new career direction, building the studio is actually taking up from where he left off in his early 20s. “Duality has a streamlined workflow that’s neat and intuitive and is a great mix of all of SSL’s previous desks. The digital integration with Logic and Pro Tools® is what takes it above and beyond the competition. As far as we are concerned, Duality is the ultimate console.?

Heliport Studios is a six-room facility featuring the Duality control room, a large Live Room, an Acoustics/Instruments Room (a smaller live-room recording space), a Medium Room for up to three performers, a Vocal Booth room and the Tube Room, designed as a small space to place guitar or bass amps.

“We went to great lengths to offer a wide range of vintage microphones and outboard gear, so a high-end professional act would be comfortable recording,? Pease comments. “I even scored a brand new 1958 RCA DX-77 in the original package. I set out to make this studio a wonderful creative space, which requires offering tools that will bring out the best sound. Our clients at all levels love the sound they get from Duality.?

While Pease first envisioned building a personal studio, this quickly grew into a dual-role personal/commercial studio. But the evolution of Pease’s mission didn’t stop there. Because of the extremely positive response Duality and the entire facility have received from artists, engineers and producers, Pease is planning a venture into TV.

“We’re looking to produce an unplugged-type program, where we’ll put a key musician in the studio, mix him or her in with talented local musicians, and film the whole thing,? states Pease. “The program will offer humor, in-depth interviews, intelligence and, of course, music performed by well-known musicians. You can’t generate the interest in this type of thing without a console like Duality. The acts are already lining up.?
