Alchemea upgrade control room with Whizzer Virtual Tape Machine

London-based audio college Alchemea has recently enhanced its SSL G series control room with a Whizzer Virtual Tape Machine.

“There were a few products on the market which could have potentially fulfilled our need for an interface between the SSL 4000 G Series and our Pro Tools HD rig. We chose the Whizzer due to its simplicity of use, ease of integration and, most importantly, its future proof design.” Says Head of Studio Sound, Jon Olliffe.

“From an academic point of view, by encouraging the user to concentrate on using the desk automation, it suits our needs perfectly. Additionally we’ve been pleasantly surprised by the outstanding level of customer service.”

Alchemea College specialises in full-time and short audio engineering, music production, live sound and video courses and offers full-time Diploma level audio engineering courses in Studio Sound and Live Sound as well as short courses in studio electronics, mixing, recording & mastering techniques.
