The University of Michigan School of Music recently installed three Grace Design model 801R 8-channel remote-control microphone preamplifiers and an 801RCU remote-control unit. The sale was handled by Grace Design dealer Vintage Loop in Shelby Twp., Mich.

The School of Music is in the process of constructing a new 5.1-capable Goff Smith Recording Studio within the 4,000-seat Hill Auditorium concert hall, which was originally built in 1913. Recording, mixing and editing will be accomplished via both PCM and DSD format multichannel recording systems for subsequent release in 5.1. The new facility will primarily be used for live concert recording and teaching audio engineering to undergraduate students. The 24-channel 801R system will function as the primary microphone preamplifiers and will be remotely controlled directly from engineers in the control room.

“Much of the music we’ll be recording in Hill Auditorium will be acoustic and recorded to-high definition PCM and DSD systems for 5.1 release,” noted assistant professor of audio engineering Dr. Jason Corey. “We chose the Grace model 801R mic preamps to ensure we’d capture the high level of detail, clarity and transparency that we need.”
