A lottery grant has enabled Radio Northwick Park to equip its second studio with a new mixing desk.
The mixer is one of HARMAN’s Studer OnAir 1500 consoles and will enable the station to continue providing a 24 hours service and train volunteers with modern facilities.
Technical Officer Ben Hart told RadioToday: “This will directly benefit volunteers in enabling them to be trained and to use standardised equipment and to provide an even better service to our listeners.
“Though some presenters like to stick to the basics, we also have the option for advanced tweaking and complex configurations, should they request them. The expansive capabilities of these consoles allow us to future-proof.”
Ben added: “The console gives our volunteer presenters a good feel of how the larger consoles operate and allows them to become familiar with the industry standard.”
