Focusrite Helps Fit Out UK Music Institute Resonance

Posted on: Thursday 3rd of February 2022

Resonance Music Institute studio pictureResonance is a brand-new music institute in the UK’s West Midlands, designed around a new approach to music and pro audio instruction, optimised to take its limited number of students farther, faster. The facility’s three recording studios and eight fully equipped rehearsal studios and Mac lab – for basic DAW-based study – have been Dante equipped to all the variety digital mixers and other equipment to circulate between any of these rooms.

Resonance CEO and Principal Rick Benton, tells us that is has “two completely separate Dante networks running side by side, so if one drops, we go to Dante B. There are Ethernet ports in every room… In effect, this is a 48,000 sq ft recording studio – the sky’s the limit.”

Focusrite gear in Studio One includes a Red 16Line interface, and two 8-channel Focusrite ISA 828 MkII preamps with Dante converters. In Studio Two, there is another Red 16Line connected to two RedNet A16R MkII’s. Studio Three uses a Focusrite Clarett 8Pre USB interface. The Mac Lab has 16 Macs, each with a Scarlett 2i2 and a Novation Launchkey Mk3 controller. Rehearsal rooms are configured to accommodate wheeled racks with four RedNet MP8R remote-controlled 8-channel preamps, which can go into any room individually or together, and six RedNet AM2 headphone/line out boxes that float as well.
