EX’PRESS DELIVERY FROM PAD: SSL 9000 J TO EX’PRESSION COLLEGE FOR DIGITAL ARTS
The Challenge: Provide this leading Bay Area digital arts school’s students with an additional SSL 9000 J console for a world-class experience. Delivering a great ROI for Ex’pression (www.expression.edu) was on the curriculum.
The Solution: “PAD has extensive experience working with colleges, universities and media programs,” says Dave Malekpour, President of PAD, “and we feel that for them a second-hand console is often a smart investment. This is a school that demands the latest and greatest technology -- their gear has to work and still be cost-effective, just like anything in the educational market. The studios run 24/7, and the students expect to be able to go in and start recording immediately. Ex’pression needed a console that would provide good continuity with an SSL E Series they had in another control room, so PAD located a very good condition, low-use 64-channel SSL 9000 J which was then upgraded to an 80-channel frame. We made it fit with their budget, refurbished and installed it with our one-year warranty, as well as providing some exciting new outboard gear. With the expert refurbishment that PAD provides, this board will definitely stand up to heavy use.”
