Valencia Community College is adding to its already-considerable audio firepower with the recent purchase of a 32-channel automated 1608. The console, which joins Valencia's current 16-channel desk, will ultimately be housed in a new facility at the East Campus in Orlando. Why another 1608? "It's a rock solid console, and the sound blows me away," said Joseph McBride, VCC Professor of Audio Production. We can't argue with the logic. Both 1608's were sold by Parsons Audio, Boston.
