Cincinnati - Sep 26, 2006 - The Corbett Studio recently facilitated the sound recordings of the 2006 Cincinnati Opera Summer Festival, and used the Digiphy 8 Mic system from VTG, the parent company of Horizon Music and Rapco International. To preserve the sound integrity for future radio broadcasts on Cincinnati Classical Public Radio WGUC-FM and WVXU-FM, the Corbett Studio reviewed a number of options before deciding on Digiphy as the ideal system for recording this year''s series, comprised of operas Tosca, L'Etoile, A Masked Ball and The Tales of Hoffmann.
The Ethersound-based professional audio networking device under the Digiphy model features an eight-channel design in a metal 1RU enclosure. Each input features 48V phantom power, programmable input gain ranges from 0dB to 66dB in 0.5dB steps, with a maximum input levels of +10dBu/2k, and 80Hz low cut and 12kHz high-cut filters.
Alex Kosiorek, audio recording and mastering engineer for the Corbett Studio, used two of the Digiphy input modules and were able to connect 16 channels of 24-bit audio directly to the Yamaha DM1000 console via an AVY16-ES Ethersound card through one CAT-5 cable.
