Audio Aesthetics and Technology
Please Note: Due to our continual effort to improve the program, the facilities may be changed or upgraded.
The focal point of the Control Room is our new Solid State Logic (SSL) Duality console. This state-of-the-art board offers complete integration with ProTools and a 24 track RADAR24™ hard drive system. The Duality continues SSL's tradition of audio excellence and flexibity. The monitor speakers are Adam 7s. There is a complete array of signal processing gear. Advanced audio courses, including Multitrack Recording (AUDI 3000), Audio Engineering (AUDI 4800), Music Recording (AUDI 4000) are taught here. Students enrolled in Audio Engineering are responsible for operating the studio during 4 hour shifts. A wide range of microphones is also available.
List of Equipment in Studio A:
Studio B is a general purpose production room for Audio I (AUDI 1000) and Audio II (AUDI 2000) students. This facility offers basic stereo production. The audio console is a Studer 963. Recordings are made on a TASCAM DSD Compact Disc recorder and analog ReVox™ tape recorders. A Macintosh™ computer is used to introduce the basics of audio production on computer. Basic audio skills and console operation are part of these early classes. Students working in Studio B learn through extensive hands-on experience.

All studios double as teaching facilities with class sizes limited to 15 students. Advanced audio classes often have half that number. The studios have both new and vintage equipment typical of many "real life" commercial facilities. Students learn to use and maintain the facilities while an in-house technical team provides maintenance and maintenance supervision.
In addition to the studios, the Audio Production progam has a wide variety of equipment for use away from the university. This includes a full P.A. system, complete remote recording kits and a RADAR-24 package for multitrack recording on remote.
The list of remote recording and PA equipment is too large to list here.
