Music technology facilities
Our music technology facilities are specified and maintained to a high standard. This includes three fully equipped ProTools HD recording studios and a number of mixing suites, all with professionally installed and calibrated industry specification monitoring.
We offer Commercial Music and Creative Music Technology students priority use across three Apple Mac labs with up to 50 workstations in our main presentation lab.
These offer a full range of industry standard hardware and software including:
- Logic Audio Pro
- Ableton Live
- Numerous plug-ins and processing software including Waves bundles, Native Instrument suites, GRM tools, Lexicon reverbs, MacDSP, and surround sound encoders.
We also support visual and media based work with current versions of applications such as Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Jitter and a full range of multimedia authoring packages.
We have five high quality studios running Pro Tools HD systems. These are used for our Commercial Music students for their album projects, and Creative Music Technology students for Audio Post and other high-end production projects.
We have five full-band rehearsal rooms, all equipped with PA, guitar/bass backline, high end drum kits, amplifiers (Mesa Boogie, Orange, Ampeg and Vox) and Nord Keyboards. The facilities are mainly used by Commercial Music students to support their tour and album modules. Two of the rooms have tie-lines into our Pro Tools HD studios.
