Located in downtown Seoul, South Korea, Record Factory Music Academy is a state-of-the-art music production education facility where more than 1,000 students have studied the craft of creating music.
At the centre of the facility's newly built studios is a Solid State Logic AWS 924 Hybrid Console/Controller.
“We considered a number of other consoles to equip Record Factory’s studios,” says Mr. Jong Hee Park, Record Factory CEO.
“But the AWS was the only one that could meet our expectations. Our mission is to give students real-world experience in a rapidly changing music scene, so we needed to build a very modern and innovative studio.
"The AWS is perfect for our studio because of its hybrid design that excels in both analogue and digital-based production. It’s like having both an analogue console and a very well made DAW controller together. It allows our students to concentrate on the sound, rather than struggling with a mouse and keyboard.
“The console’s small footprint allowed two additional isolation booths to be added in the control room,” continues Mr. Park. “Our instructors and students are amazed by its clever ergonomic design, flexibility and, of course, signature sound, which is absolutely amazing. We especially love the high-input headroom and pristine signal path.
"The AWS definitely has the warmth and musical harmonic character that we expect from a highly respected analogue console.”
