WZIP-FM is on the Right Track
The iQs were installed in our main on-air studio and the backup on-air 2 studio. I actually configured on-air 2 first so I could train the announcers in a low-stress environment. I have the same profiles in both except the last one in on-air 2 is geared for use as a production studio.
The main production training room has an Audioarts R-60 console and enough space for six to eight students and their student teacher. In our program our best current students train the next wave. We also have a small production studio with an Allen & Heath XB-14 console. All the studios have an Enco workstation on a KVM, Adobe Audition, Audio-Technica mics, CD players and recorder, and a few lesser-used items like turntables and carts.
The installation went smoothly and much quicker than the last console installs. The StudioHub adapters, Krone blocks, and CAT-5 patch assemblies are the only way to go in today's market. I had limited student help but it was still all done in about a week. The training process went well too; even our mature Polka show volunteers liked the new setup.
I had a few holes to fill in the tabletop since the iQ footprint is quite a bit smaller than the old consoles. The only complaint I had was from the graduating class who didn't get a chance to use the new equipment.
