New Zealand’s University of Otago Makes Connections with Solid State Logic’s Duality Delta SuperAnalogue
The University of Otago in Dunedin, on New Zealand’s South Island, opened a new School of Performing Arts building in 2020, a purpose-built, two-story complex that features a Solid State Logic Duality Delta SuperAnalogueTMmixing console, supplied by Amber Technology NZ, in the spacious main recording studio. The studio supports the school’s teaching program while also accommodating national and regional music industry projects and encouraging community engagement through workshops and other events.
“The reputation of the Duality precedes it, both in terms of the package — the workflow and how it sits in the room — as well as how it sounds,” says Stephen Stedman, studio manager and music technician at the university’s new Te Korokoro o te Tui studios. “We had a really good look at what other educators are doing around the world, where they want a real-world professional studio console. Dualitys are highly regarded and are in some of the best facilities in the world, so what we are teaching to students is relevant and aligned to what they might encounter in the outside world.”
