A sound investment for Telford College music students
Music production students at Telford College now have access to some of the industry’s latest surround-sound technology.
The college has bought a new Genelec 5.1 – the system which is used by professional recording studios, post-production facilities, broadcast engineers, and sound designers.
It has been installed at the King Street campus for use by students on the college’s HND music production course, but will be transferred to the Haybridge site when all music courses move there from September.
Andy Turner, lecturer in music production and events management, said: “This technology allows students to edit and mix dialogue, sound effects and music.
“It enables them to work with industry-standard equipment to produce their projects, such as audio post production and composing for film and television.
“We’re hoping that these facilities will also enable us to work more collaboratively with other departments around the college, such as media and theatre studies when creating mixes of their videos and performances.”
The equipment will support new virtual and augmented reality technology which Telford College will be installing over the summer. Prospective students are welcome to register for a course taster to see this equipment for themselves.
