Leeds-based audio retailer Production Room has provided several pairs of Eve Audio SC207 monitors – supplied by Nova Distribution – to the Music Production department of Hull College. The facility comprises two recording studios, two rehearsal rooms, six post production rooms and an audio suite incorporating 22 iMacs. Hull's senior music technician, Mark Hitchin, explained: “When looking to replace our tired studio speakers I was in contact with Production Room to demo various mid to high range monitors. After several different pairs of monitors, they mentioned that they had just received some new Eve Audio SC207s which were just slightly more than our budget, but certainly caught my attention when compared against other manufactures. “They instantly give the music clarity, a well dynamically balanced sound, filling out the low frequency and a smooth crisp high without causing any harsh sounds. The SC207’s are well-rounded monitors with the size being suitable for our professional studios and complement our setup perfectly.” The facilities are equipped with industry standard software including Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Ableton, Reason and Sibelius. The recording studios are both equipped with Pro Tools HD, one being a specialised digital studio with 5.1 mixing, the other containing Pro Tools HD and a 24 track tape machine to ensure students have the opportunity to work with, and experience, analogue techniques that are still used within the industry. Hitchin continued: “The SC207’s offer a fantastic feature with the DSP setup being quick and easy and then disabling the controls to stop students from changing the required setup and giving the mix an inaccurate sound. After a couple of months of use, all our staff and students are very pleased with the purchase.” www.nova-distribution.co.uk
