Real Sound Lab's South Korean distributor, Fone`Sound, recently installed three APEQ-2pro Acoustic Power Equalizers in the master control room of the new KBS building hall, where musical events are recorded, mixed and broadcasted nationally.
MunAn Go, the main sound engineer of KBS hall, claimed, "CONEQ™ is an ideal solution to have for the monitoring system”, upon listening to CONEQ™ demo done by Fone`Sound team in the KBS new building’s hall master control room. MunAn Go added, “The imbalance between the left and the right monitor have been one of the major problems in the master control room, but with CONEQ™ the balance was greatly improved. Also, due to the confinement of a small space, many mixing studios experience the "booming effect" and you have to ignore this to predict the final mix. This can introduce less efficiency and accuracy of the mix. However, with CONEQ™, the booming problem is now far less of an issue. I've decided to confer CONEQ™ graph analysis and adjust my ears accordingly. To get used to the new environment, I've constantly monitored my mixed products from normal TVs for two months. Once you are acclimated to the flat sound environment, mixing becomes easier than ever, as you need to mix solely according to what you're hearing."
"Korean Broadcasting System is a highly valued RSL customer, and collaboration with them definitely strengthens the CONEQ™ presence in the broadcast market. We are delighted that our technology significantly improved monitoring accuracy at KBS, providing them a more precise acoustic environment in which to create improved mixes," states Viesturs Balodis - Real Sound Lab’s international sales manager.
