Symterix delivers studio sound at Korean recording complex

AUTHOR: Inavate

The South Korean government has been keen on promoting the country’s music industry and has recently co-sponsored a new recording and rehearsal facility, called Musistance, in Seoul. A Symetrix SymNet Radius 12x8 open architecture Dante-scalable DSP has been employed at the venue for audio processing.

Located in a remodelled underground walkway beneath a six-lane boulevard in the Mapo District of Seoul, Musistance incorporates five private music studios, general recording spaces, two band practice rooms and more. In addition to music recording and rehearsal, Musistance is also regularly hired out for small-scale live performances and musical instrument lessons.

AV distributor and installer Sound Solution was enlisted to work on the project. In addition to working on elements including the safety and communication systems, Sound Solution furnished Musistance with core audio components and a Dante-based network infrastructure.

Lisa Lee, marketing manager at Sound Solution, said: “Utilising Symetrix’ superior support for the Dante media networking technology was a key solution for this project, as there was a need to transport audio across multiple spaces and process it centrally.” She continued: “A single SymNet Radius 12x8 DSP supports a Dante network that covers five individual private studios and a main general recording room. The result is that signals can be shared quickly and easily between the different spaces – affording maximum flexibility for the musicians, producers and engineers working there.”

SymNet Radius 12x8’s ability to adjust to future requirements through the use of SymNet xIn and SymNet xOut expanders helped inform the selection of DSP. Klark Teknik network bridges allow conversion between Dante and MADI realms, while Sound Solution also supplied Beyerdynamic microphones, Denon pre-amplifiers and CD players, Midas consoles, RCF loudspeakers and Sommer cables.
