Pop Academie Chooses Studer Vista 5 For Recording Studio Training Center

The Pop Academie National College for Popular Music located in Mannheim serves a very active music scene with artists such as Xavier Naidoo, die Söhne Mannheims, Laith Al-Deen, Groove Guerrilla, Mardi Gras.BB and Joy Fleming. Founded in 2003 by the Baden-Württemberg county as a public-private partnership, the Pop Academie is funded through national and private contributions.

When upgrading the recording studio earlier this year, studio manager Marcus Thiel chose a 32-fader Vista 5, not only for Studer’s renowned audio quality and reputation, but primarily for the intuitive operation of the console, a highly important feature when teaching students the art of recording. Studer’s patented Vistonics™ GUI is widely regarded as the best user interfaces to be found on digital consoles.

The Vista 5 is configured with 24 Mic/Line inputs, and 2 MADI outputs linked to a ProTools audio workstation and an RME Madi link to a Logic/Cubase workstation, and is used as part of the studies to record Pop and Rock bands.
