Cleveland Institute of Music
Patric Audio Recording Center
Control Room A Wiring Project

Engineered by:
Bruce Ecre, CIM faculity

Installation Assistance by:
Bob Wood, Wizard SounDesign

Project Completed January 2007

Not every project is totally engineered and installed by Wizard Sound. Many times our professional clients contact us for assistance with some of the more technical aspects of an installation they are doing themselves. In the case of the new Patric Audio Recording Center at CIM, cabling end connectors needed to be installed to mate to the new control room console and wired to the studio connector panels. Some of the grunt work of new equipment placement and cabling pulls was done by students and faculity after the primary room construction was completed. We were called in to assist on the technical stuff; like installing the multi-pin connectors, bundling and pulling in a few of the audio lines, and designing and sourcing the studio panels.
