AMS Neve announced that Dolby Laboratories (San Francisco) has purchased a new 18-fader/88-input AMS Neve Logic MMC. The console will be installed by summer 2002, in Dolby's San Francisco-based Presentation Studio, which is used for developing, testing and presenting new products and technologies.
According to Tim Partridge, VP and general manager of the professional division at Dolby, the purchase culminates a close review of consoles. "The MMC has the automation, routing and monitoring features we were looking for, as well as a control surface that is both intuitive and logical. Our Presentation Studio is an important testing ground for Dolby's next generation of technology. The MMC will be put to the test in a variety of applications, so sound quality and flexibility were equally important to us."
"The pedigree of Dolby is world renowned," said John Hart, AMS Neve VP of the western region and South America. "I am delighted that, after evaluating the array of console products available in today's marketplace, Dolby chose the Logic MMC for its Presentation Studio."
