Los Angeles–based producer/engineer Aris Archontis (pictured) has taken delivery of North America’s first Solid State Logic Duality console. The large-format Duality is housed at Archontis’ new private recording studio, Archon, which was designed by Chris Pelonis.
Archontis, a graduate of Berklee College of Music, has been working with recording artists and independent bands. “Everything has moved very fast,” Archontis says of his young career. “I decided to create a private facility to concentrate full-time on writing and production.”
To equip the new studio, he recalls, “I had done a lot of research and was looking for a long time. I didn’t want to compromise, so when Duality came along, it was like someone had finally answered my prayers. Groups, plenty of buses and sends, automation, unparalleled routing, DAW control and a great master section—all under one hood with incredible sound quality, and no giant power supply in sight. Coming primarily from a digital background, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to satisfy my DAW needs while bringing the fun part back into recording and mixing music. Duality surpassed my expectations.”
Duality is designed to closely integrate with the operator’s workstation of choice, and offers creative and sonic options.
