AudioVision Upgrades To Fairlight's Constellation XCS Console

Audio post production facility AudioVision has placed an order for a three-bay Fairlight Constellation XCS console.
This will be installed into a custom-built frame that is currently being constructed by AudioVision's owner Bill Trousdale.
Based in Orange County, AudioVision was established in 1989 by Trousdale who has more than 35 years experience in the pro audio industry. The facility is equipped to a very high specification, particularly in regards to acoustic isolation and overall sonic purity. All of its audio recording systems are Fairlight, which Trousdale chose because they offer the speed, stability and audio quality that his clients demand.
He said: "At AudioVision we pride ourselves on the fact that we are technically far ahead of our competitors. Clients want to realise their goals and contain costs through smooth work flow and technical reliability. Our aim is to help them achieve this in an environment that is both creative and relaxed."
By upgrading to Fairlight's Constellation XCS console, Audio Vision will be able to harness the unique tactile power of Fairlight's Xynergi controller. This provides a truly intuitive tool for recording, editing and mixing and allows engineers to access all the features of Fairlight's new Crystal Core (CC-1) engine, as well as commonly used Windows applications.
Bill Trousdale's XCS console will be the first in the USA to use the Minetonka Dolby E and TC power core plug-ins. It will also be housed in a special frame with room for a secondary computer and with the top panels placed at an angle, reflecting the way in which Trousdale likes to work.
He said: "I've always liked the 'English' style of console - flat fladers and the other panels angled upwards as they get further away - very ergonomic. Besides, with the amount of hours I spend in front of the console, I want to be as comfortable as possible."
AudioVision's console components are being supplied by Fairlight dealer Hollywood Sound, which has had a long association with the facility. This is Hollywood Sound's first console sale. Fairlight USA and its representative Audio Agent will oversee delivery and be on hand to help with installation and after sales support.
Trousdale added: "I'm expecting immediate delivery and I'm hoping to have the custom frame finished within the next few weeks. If everything goes to plan, I should have the new console operational soon after."
