Sound Studio N in Cologne, Germany, will install the world’s first Fairlight DREAM Anthem, which will live in Control Room 1 and be seamlessly networked via Fairlight MediaLink with Fairlight QDC engines in Control Rooms 2 and 3. Fairlight’s new SX48 Signal Exchange, a compact remotely configurable I/O solution, will deliver audio between the live area and control room.
“The Fairlight Anthem is an innovative console that offers everything,” says chief engineer. “With 96-channel hard disk recording, eight powerful QDC audio engine and full networkability, the Anthem is the complete solution for recording, mixing and post-production. In addition, the sleek and slim design fits perfectly into our studio acoustic design. We are proud to be the first Fairlight Anthem owner and look forward to a long and successful future with the console.”
