Ocean Trax Records Installs Solid State Logic Duality Console in Its House of Glass Studio

Studio to Service Recording Artists on Ocean Trax and Sublabels

VIAREGGIO, TUSCANY, ITALY – Ocean Trax Records, the parent company of Ocean Trax, Ocean Dark, Checkmate and Paul’s Boutique record labels, has recently installed a 48-channel, Solid State Logic Duality console in its newly rebuilt recording facility, House of Glass Studio. Housed in Regia A, the main studio control room, Duality provides the flexible power and sound of a signature high-end studio, with integral control of the resident Logic and Pro Tools® DAW systems.

“We chose Duality because it allows us to create the sound the artists want very quickly,? says Gianni Bini, owner of Ocean Trax Records and House of Glass Studio. “We often work on many different styles of music for our record labels and Duality really helps to speed up our workflow. The on-console DAW control allows us to better concentrate on crafting the sound, rather than constantly returning to a mouse. Also, the TotalRecall feature is quite fast and lets us re-open projects to make changes without wasting a lot of time. For today’s business, working in the quickest way represents a ‘must have’ for every recording studio and for us that meant Duality.?

The entire studio complex building encompasses 230 Sq Meters (2475 Sq Feet) and contains the main control room where Duality is located, a smaller control room and three recording areas that additionally include an isolation booth and a drum booth. Both control rooms address the recording spaces for studio booking flexibility. The intention was to offer the best live recording and tracking experience for the Tuscany region and Italy at large. Duality helps fulfill this design mandate.

“We have various kinds of clients from DJ’s, who want to make their own productions to be released on one of our dance record labels, to pop/rock artists who are making their album here,? continues Bini. “They come here, in large part, because of Duality. We always wanted an SSL console and we are very pleased with Duality because it is the new concept console from SSL. It was never a consideration to buy a controller because we didn’t want to pay so much money for an Empty Box!?

As the music industry continues to change, the major labels do not, as a rule, any longer offer big budgets to groups to record projects. For Ocean Trax, the investment in Duality was necessary to give the studio a creative edge above other studios by providing artists the means to capture the creative intent of each type of project.

“With Duality as the centerpiece of the new studio, artists want to come and record projects and that is good for both the House of Glass Studios and for bringing new artists onto our record labels,? states Bini. “When clients first see the console, they feel that their work will be done at a no-compromise quality level. However, they are really surprised when then discover how fast we can reach the sound they want. Right from the first note of any style of music, Duality simply makes everything sound better.?
