528 Inputs and Thousands of Bands of EQ

Universal Studios’ Dub Room 4, also known as the Alfred Hitchcock Theater, upgraded their console in 2005 to be functionally equivalent to the Harrison MPC4-D. The console is over 30 feet long and has more faders than any single console in the world. Here is a picture of the console.

Harrison recently hosted an AES event and showcased an MPC4-D ready for delivery to a soundstage in Russia. 3dAudio covered that event at a post here.

One interesting feature is the number of processors required to run the console. Here is a photo of the AMD Opteron-powered CPUs that power the board. The operating system is running Linux and everything is connected by Gigabit Ethernet.
