Peabody School of Music Goes Digital with Soundtracs
The Peabody Conservatory of Music at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD recently upgraded its recording facility with a full renovation that included the installation of a Soundtracs DPC-II digital console.

“We record over 700 events a year,” says Sean Finn, studio manager, Peabody Conservatory of Music. “We also record and produce projects for students and facility members. The studio itself is state-of-the-art and was designed by our own Acoustic Seminar students under the direction of Peter D’Antonio at RPG Diffusor Systems. It features a Sony PCM 3324 multitrack digital recorder, a SADiE hard disk editor, a Pro Tools 24 MIX System for editing and multitrack work, DA-98’s, and a wide selection of vintage and cutting-edge outboard processors. Comprehensive 5.1 monitoring is accomplished with Dynaudio Acoustic direct-field and Lyonsound dipolar diffuse-field loudspeakers.”

Alan P. Kefauver, director of recording arts and sciences for the facility, adds, “We auditioned several large-format, digitally-controlled consoles with mixed results. Since most of what we do ends up on digital media, the Soundtracs DPC-II was ideal and its combination of price and flexibility made it a logical decision.”
