Full Sail Real World Education recently installed and commissioned its third Amek 9098i. Serving as the heart of the school’s new Studio C, the fully loaded 72-channel desk is being used to teach signal flow, automation and recall in the "Recording and Mixing Consoles" course.

After employing a pair of 9098is for more than two years now—including an identical 72-channel model in Studio A and a 40-channel in Suite 1—Full Sail Recording Arts program director Bill Smith commented, “Aside from the fact that we love the sound of the desk, having several identical consoles provides us with maximum flexibility in scheduling; we can easily move projects between studios in order to use our facility most efficiently. It also allows us to fine-tune the usage of each console for specific types of lab. For example, we don’t need to tie up a large tracking facility to teach automation; we can use one studio to track while another is teaching signal flow/automation and a third is doing overdubs. This allows our students to have the most effective learning experience.”

Studio C, completed in July, is laid out for instruction and features a large plasma display for console computer functions, Pro Tools display and video playback, as well as a large isolation booth for teaching, tracking and overdubs. In addition to the new 9098i, the room is equipped with a Pro Tools|HD system, Tascam MX-2424 hard disk recorder, a myriad outboard signal processors and Dynaudio BM15A monitors.

“To sum things up, we’ve been very happy with our 9098is,” Smith added. “Not only do they sound fantastic, but they’ve proven themselves to be extremely reliable, and I doubt that you could find more brutal conditions for a console! Our students are working on these desks 24/7 and really putting them through their paces.”
