ISF Studios, a large animation and production houses in the Turkish capital of Ankara that’s responsible for “Rafadan Tayfa,” the country’s most popular children’s animated series, recently implemented a 48-channel Audient ASP8024 console in a new studio at the facility.
Mustafa Tarkan Ergün, the producer/mixing and mastering engineer at ISF Studios, explains, “It was our first choice in terms of the warm, analogue sound, the numerous functional possibilities as well as its affordability, which doesn’t sacrifice quality.” The console, which includes patchbay and Dual Layer Control (DLC), was provided by Audient distributor Akalın Müzik, which also specified and built the complete studio.
Among many endeavors, ISF was also instrumental in the renewal of the national children’s television station TRT Çocuk’s ident. The upgrade came shortly before the Minister of Industry & Technology Mustafa Varank told the Turkish Anadolu Agency that Turkey was increasing its potential in the animation sector.
Ergün says of the console, “It has a sweet and warm saturation. At the same time, the ASP8024-HE graphic EQ gives the ear a feeling of freedom, not artificial, but realistic and soft. The bus compressor is very good.”
