HHB Communications Ltd recently supplied and installed a music production recording system at the Alness campus of North Highland College, part of University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) in Scotland.
Based around an Audient ASP4816 mixer and an Avid Pro Tools HD Native DAW, the hybrid analogue and digital system provides students with an extensive range of technology that can be used for traditional multi-microphone recording and computer-based composition. In addition, HHB has supplied an Avid S3 control surface, a range of outboard processors, cabling and technical furniture from StudioRacks.
To ensure the most efficient installation/commissioning process, HHB carried out a pre-delivery configuration and set up, reducing time on site. Two of the HHB installation team flew to Inverness to carry out the on-site installation and training.
“This has been an interesting project as we needed to balance the college’s teaching requirements with the available budget and some restraints on the physical space,” states Andrew Hingley, Sales Manager at HHB. “The combination of the Audient analogue mixer with Avid Pro Tools and S3 controller provides an exciting hybrid system, that can be used for almost any type of music production.”
“After receiving a number of quotes for our studio installation we went with HHB due to their attention to detail,” says Peter Noble, lecturer at North Highland College. “Throughout the process HHB listened to our needs and focused on the specification and flexibility of our studio solution. They provided a variety of options at a variety of prices and came back with tweaks throughout the procurement. The installation was thorough and HHB have been available and quick to respond to any queries.”
