One of the major tasks for the Spring 2019 semester was to upgrade the recording studios. Thanks to the support of the Music Department, we were able to completely reconfigure and put our C24 digital console into a beautiful Argosy mix desk in the main studio. This allowed us to both streamline the recording process and also free up valuable space in the control room. We are putting the final touches on the new setup and are excited for students to get to work on projects using the updated workflow.
The main control room wasn’t the only space that we upgraded. We also made changes to our “B” studio by adding a new interface and PreSonus digital controller. The studio was made complete by adding an Arturia keyboard controller. This will be an excellent space for students to use as an excellent project mixing workstation or vocal booth. It only takes a flip of a couple of switches and you’re up and running!
Lastly, we rearranged the hall recording station to make for a simplified and comfortable recording area. This station is used by the recording crew to capture all of the ensemble concerts and recitals throughout the semester. The new arrangements are designed to represent the kinds of experiences that they will have in internships and careers at media production companies and recording studios. We are so glad to have had the opportunity to improve our recording spaces, and it will be a fantastic benefit to students for many years to come.
