ACM’s latest investment in state-of-the-art recording technology is the cutting edge SSL Duality Studio, based around Solid State Logic’s flagship console the Duality, with the latest Mac Pro running Pro Tools, Logic, Ableton Live and a host of other production software.
“ACM has an enviable reputation for excellence that has grown out of providing first rate teaching facilities and great teaching and support staff.”

The Duality gets its name from the dual mic pre’s, compressors and EQ’s featured on every channel, and is Solid State Logic‘s top-end console. This is truly the finest mixing desk money can buy, and gives our students the chance to learn on the very latest professional equipment. Read more about the Duality.
This facility is complemented by JDK Audio (API) R20 2 channel mic pres, R24 2 channel 4 band parametric EQ and Universal Audio 1176 Twin Vintage Limiting Amplifier. Monitoring in this room is through our DynAudio AIR25 main monitors, which are ‘soffit’ mounted in the walls, and alternatively through the DynAudio BM5a 5.1 system for surround sound mixes.
This room has a large live room, equipped with guitar / bass backline and Yamaha drum kit, and also a separate, smaller vocal booth, connected by an acoustic window and with a two way video system back to the desk. With a dedicated selection of Shure, AKG, Neumann and Rode mics and accessories available to book out for recording in the studio, a room design carefully considered with acoustic specialists and some great additional treatment and consultation from Vicoustic in Portugal, this latest addition to ACM’s Audio Production facilities really does set us aside from other education establishments.
The SSL Duality Studio is used for degree Audio Production and CSD lectures and is also available to be booked for student’s projects outside of scheduled lecture hours.
