Media training college Alchemea has invested in a new Solid State Logic Duality SE music console.

The college’s technical team needed a replacement for its Euphonix CS3000 desk.

Alchemea director Neil Pickles said: “We needed a fully featured large format analogue console with 24 channels, and we had a fairly long list of other feature requirements including full processing on all channels, surround and advanced automation with full DAW control.

“In addition we wanted a console from a company we could trust to provide support for the next 15 years going forward, and a brand that was relevant to today’s market so that we are training students on equipment they will encounter in the real world.”

Alchemea specialises in full-time and short audio engineering, music production, live sound and video courses.

The finance for the investment was provided by Fineline Media Finance.
