SOLID STATE LOGIC DUALITY INSTALLED AT ISHTAR’S BLUE SPIRIT RECORDING STUDIOS

Console to Serve Artists on Edizioni Ishtar and Subsidiaries

MILAN – Edizioni Ishtar has installed a 48-channel Solid State Logic Duality Console in Studio A at its new Blue Spirit recording facility in Milan. The studio was built to support recording projects for release on Ishtar’s numerous record labels, which feature a wide range of music styles. Some of the artists represented by the label include Nicola Conte, Mario Biondi, Rosalia De Souza, The Dining Rooms and S-Tone Inc. Duality provides Ishtar with SSL’s signature SuperAnalogue™ sound quality, feature set and DAW control to streamline production while delivering superior-sounding tracks across all musical disciplines.

“First and foremost, Duality gives us the great SSL sound shared by so many major recording artists around the world,? says Davide Rosa, co-owner of Ishtar. “Our studio will be at the disposal of every producer and artist on our extensive roster. For example, one of our larger labels, Schema Records, produces Jazz in all of its expressions, including Nu Jazz. Our musical ideas for this label and others draw inspiration from the warmth and intensity of the 1960s and 1970s and we needed a console that would give us that sonic intimacy while delivering a fully competitive modern sound. Duality is that console.?

Blue Spirit’s Studio A features a large recording room with two adjacent isolation booths. Two pre-production rooms, Studios B and C, are connected to Studio A as well to gain facility-wide access to Duality. Blue Spirit uses a Pro Tools® system for capture, taking advantage of Duality’s fully integrated DAW control protocols.

“Controlling our Pro Tools system from the console surface really helps our recording and mixing sessions to run more quickly and be more focused, as I don’t need to interrupt my concentration to work a mouse,? states Tommaso

Colliva, recording engineer who conceived and planned the studio. “Excellent sound quality, fader automation, routing flexibility and Total Recall are just a few of the many features that made Duality the right choice for our new studio.?

Edizioni Ishtar owns and controls Schema Records, Rearward, Summer Dawn, Sensible Records and other labels. The intention for the new recording facility was to further the ambition of creating an entire industry around different sounds and styles encompassing all aspects of creating and disseminating content.

“Now that we have our recording studio complete, we can offer artists and producers the full package of recording, labeling and our expanding international market,? explains Rosa. “We are interested in crafting the sounds that bring out the best in our artists and audience. Duality gives us the tools that are necessary to accomplish our creative goals. At the same time, the fact that we have an SSL Duality in our studio is a big draw to our prospective and established artists. Having Duality is like having sonic money in the bank for the artist, so they want to record in the new studio.?
