When the audio-production students returned to class at The New England Institute of Art & Communications (Brookline, Mass.) last month, they found in the studio a new custom-designed and ready-to-go analog 48-channel console, designed and installed by John Oram.

"It's only the second of its kind in the United States," said Oram. "Half the modules are tried-and-true Tridents; the other half are new Oram modules, with automated, motorized faders and complete recall."

The Trident half of the board is the Series 80 5.1, based on the 1975 design. The Oram modules, making up the right-hand side of the console, are based on "21st-century requirements, but both the Trident and Orams produce the highest-quality analog sound," Oram commented. "Sound is a feeling, and analog is just better."

From an educational standpoint, "this is the perfect choice," adds staff audio systems engineer Andrew Lypps. "The console is infinitely flexible in all of the routes and it is logical. A student can look at it and find everything clearly labeled, and it's really easy to use. Our instructors can teach many methods with this piece. Also, because it can be put in so many different configurations, it can interface with equipment anywhere in our entire facility, from our live music studio to our television production studios to our Internet radio station."
