Emmanuel College gets best of both with ASP4816


Emmanuel College in Victoria has installed an Audient ASP4816 console in its new performing arts centre that will be central to its music production course. The desk has also already been used to record voiceovers for the college’s film and video publications.

‘I wanted to bring the best of both analogue and digital to our wonderful new space,’ said tutor and studio technician, Peter Sassmanshausen, who specified the desk after six months of in-depth research. ‘The Audient ASP4816 is a beautiful console with a small footprint and a massive sound. It was by far the standout console even among more expensive models, nothing seemed close to providing the heart and soul this desk has. The preamps were raved about – these I can vouch for 100%. They contain a warmth and are yet transparent.’

The new performing arts centre, The STAGE (Student Theatre for Arts and Growth at Emmanuel) opened in November 2018 and comprises a 250-seat auditorium with tiered seating, band rehearsal areas, studios for individual tuition, a dance studio, a large multi-purpose classroom as well as the professional standard recording studio. 

‘The complexity of routing, the in-line architecture and the EQs are laid out so well and in such a user-friendly manner, I knew the students would immediately adapt to its intuitive and creative nature,’ added Sassmanshausen. ‘They were amazed to find this wonderful addition to what is already a great facility. It’s still all very new for them, but I do feel they are grasping the concepts of routing, gain staging and EQ much quicker on the inline console rather than in the box.'

‘It has always been my goal to get an analogue console in front of the students and somehow bridge the gap between the practicality of analogue and the sheer capabilities of the digital realm,' he said, adding that he has achieved this by integrating the Audient desk with the Slate Raven MTI2.
