Tribune Studios, a division of Tribune Broadcasting, has installed twin Max Air digital audio consoles in its Hollywood production facility. Both 96-channel, 5.1 surround-capable consoles will be used for live-to-tape production sound on shows such as The Sharon Osbourne Show, Family Feud and Style Court.

Director of engineering and technology, Jim Toten (pictured), said, "Max Air packs a lot of bang for the buck, and from an operator's point of view, it's easy to learn and use. The touchscreen and the full Superchannel in the center of the console make it easy to work with, which is very important, as our mixers are freelancers. We have also been using the Euphonix System 5 for some time so we know the company very well and like the reliability and the architecture of their systems.

"Although the shows we do now are in stereo, we wanted to be fully 5.1 capable," Toten continued. "We typically use between 40 to 60 sources so Max's 96 channels easily cover current needs and give us some spare capacity, which will be needed in the future when we do more surround work."
