NYU's New Facility Goes Dangerous for 10.2 Surround Monitoring
NYU's Department of Music and Performing Arts at the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development
Dangerous Music announced the installation of a unique 10.2 surround monitoring system for NYU's Department of Music and Performing Arts at the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development. The 7500+ sq. ft. recording studio and teaching complex was recently completed on the entire sixth floor at 35 West 4th street in NY's Greenwich Village, and will be one of the U.S.'s largest and most technically advanced audio teaching facilities. The new complex was designed by Gensler and by the Walter Storyk Design Group and features a Dangerous Music Monitor ST/SR 10.2 surround monitor system, oversized control and live rooms, a large iso/drum booth, natural light from multiple windows, and line of sight through the entire studio.
"We are very proud to be part of this amazing new facility at NYU," says Bob Muller, Dangerous Music's founder and president. "NYU and their design team came to us because in addition to our equipment's reputation for sonic excellence, the Dangerous Monitor ST/SR system's flexibility accommodates even the most advanced surround monitoring setups, while still being simple and intuitive to use."
Dave Kotch, Project Engineer for the new NYU facility, who regularly works with the Walter Storyk Design Group and the systems integrator Masque Sound, stated, "We needed a 10.2 surround controller and our choices were very limited, it's a sophisticated system here at NYU. The Faculty at NYU suggested Dangerous Music, so we contacted them and had a meeting of all the technical staff on the project and laid out the parameters to design the exact monitor control we needed. The Monitor ST/SR really worked out well, everybody is really liking the way it works and integrates into the other audio systems. Since the SSL only has 5.1 surround we need this piece to make everything work with the Crestron control system and BSS Soundweb processors for 10.2. The Dangerous gear is well respected among the NYU Faculty, and they are very happy about the integration into the system."
