PAWLING, NEW YORK A-Pawling Studio, owned by top engineer/mixer Peter Moshay (www.PeterMoshay.com), engineering confidant for Hall and Oates and producer of numerous top Asian acts, recently installed a Solid State Logic AWS 900+ SE to replace a digital console. The AWS 900+ SE offers full control of the resident Pro Tools HD® system, while delivering the signature SuperAnalogue sound and mixing capabilities for superstar Daryl Halls Live from Daryls House monthly Internet program.
I have always craved the sound of an SSL console and the AWS 900+ SE brings that world-class sound to my control room in a footprint that fits my space confines, says Moshay. The AWS is a real tool for the real world as I am no longer deciding on sample rates for tracks or worrying about bus headroom running out. The AWS always works, even for complex mixes. The sound is great, the headroom is always available and the console truly opens up more creative possibilities with the Pro Tools system. I love this console.
Heading into the 20th episode, Live From Daryls House involves capturing both audio and video performances of superstar Daryl Hall performing with guest artists in Daryls living room. Artists like Parachute, KT Tunstall, Travis McCoy of The Gym Class Heroes, Matt Nathanson and, of course, John Oates, and many others have shared the spotlight on this Internet available program.
This program was conceived by Daryl to get music out to a broader audience based on the premise of sitting down and making live music, explains Moshay. Every month we are essentially producing a new record where a wide variety of artists will perform a Hall & Oates or a Daryl song, and a few of the guest groups songs or just a song everyone likes. The relaxed atmosphere of the production is completely capturing a new audience on the web. The AWS provides the high quality sonic foundation necessary to keep this wide-ranging variety of music together. With the AWS, my mixes have more dimension and depth. When I run audio through the console, I know everything will sound good.
As the creative community continually searches for career changing methods of reaching modern audiences, the AWS 900+ SE provides a cost effective platform to deliver superstar-level audio, as witness the Live from Daryls House production. All shows are available on the net 24/7 free of charge at http://www.livefromdarylshouse.com. Negotiations are in place to bring this successful series to television and thanks to the AWS 900+ SE, the audio quality will be up to the challenge.
