SSL has landed a prestige U.S. radio user for one of its console systems.
WBEZ, a public radio station in Chicago, has purchased a Solid State Logic AWS 900+ Analog Workstation System.
The AWS 900+ is a mid-sized analog console with a digital audio workstation attached to handle recording and editing duties.
Mary Gaffney, audio supervisor for WBEZ, told the supplier that because of budget constraints, the station needed a mid-priced console. “At the same time the AWS fit our need to work with our Pro Tools system.”
The studio that the AWS 900+ will be in is used occasionally for private production. Gaffney said: “For instance, jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis uses the studio for private production.”
