Mexico’s Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education recently contracted the Malvicino Design Group to plan and build six new recording studios, utilizing Sommer Cable’s new MC-Mistral analog/digital combo cable throughout.

The Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education is a private multi-campus university based in Monterrey, Mexico. Founded in 1943, the school has since grown to include 31 campuses in 25 cities throughout the country, becoming one of the most renowned in Latin America.

Dr. Francisco Javier Ortiz Cerecedo, director of the recording program and the studio complex, commented, “We recently finished the project for the new recording facilities at Tecnológico de Monterrey and already have had the opportunity to record and produce a variety of musical genres, from classical performances to indigenous music. Thanks to Horacio Malvicino, our studios are World Class and are the best and biggest in the university system in Mexico. Many artists, producers and recording engineers have come by and all of them agree that our educational facilities are more advanced than many commercial studios.”

The Malvicino Design Group specializes in recording studio architecture, custom acoustics, and manufacturing of audio products. They have wired, integrated and commissioned over 500 studios over the years. Horacio Malvicino, who holds a degree in Electrical Engineering, decided to use the unique Sommer MC-Mistral analog/digital combo cable for the Monterrey project.

Because of the cable’s accurate capacitance, high transmission quality is assured over long distances. The wire pairs of Sommer’s Mistral cable have a pre-twisted drain wire and another shielding made from AL/PT compound foil. For added protection against corrosion and oxidation, both the conductors and the drain wire are tinned. The returns on the cable splices are easily recognizable by the color-coding on the conductor pairs.

“Horacio’s work is outstanding, with great attention to detail,” added Professor Cerecedo. “We were very impressed by the level of care and precision he took and it’s clear that Sommer cable was a great choice for our studios, resulting in optimum reliability and sound quality.”

Malvicino emphasizes the service aspect of Sommer Cable. “Their dedication to the client is thorough and everything’s easy to order online. We’re sourcing everything from them, including connectors. We also started using Sommer to produce all our microphone, tie-line, and interface panels. The quality craftsmanship is brilliant.”
