  1. Full Sail University Levels Up Student Studios With Universal Audio Interfaces

    Full Sail University Levels Up Student Studios With Universal Audio Interfaces
    While Full Sail has always been known as one of the best institutes for a traditional recording education, the school's various course offerings have evolved since relocating to Winter Park, Florida. One of the biggest areas of growth for the school has been video game design. Full Sail's Game Design program has become one of the best in the country, and recently appeared on a list of top schools selected by the Princeton Review. In order to stay on top, Full Sail works with Vintage King Audio to ensure students have access to industry-standard gear that will prepare them for the next step in their careers. When the school's recently wanted to upgrade interfaces in the Game Audio Lab and Mac Audio Lab, Vintage King Audio Sales Director Chris Bolitho pointed them in the direction of the Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII and Apollo X6 interfaces.

  2. Vintage King Helps Middle Tennessee State University Makeover Student Mix Rooms

    Vintage King Helps Middle Tennessee State University Makeover Student Mix Rooms
    It's a chill day on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University. Not in terms of the weather (it's August and it's a hot one), but MTSU's campus and student body are still sleepy as they lumber towards the start of the Fall 2019 semester. Upon entering the MTSU Center for Popular Music, we meet with the Director of the Master of Fine Arts program, Bill Crabtree. He begins to explain some of the concepts behind the gear selection in the Department of Recording Industry. "Our philosophy is more about teaching framing, rather than teaching hammer," Bill says. "This is the mantra we stick to when selecting our equipment. It's most important to teach the concepts behind the equipment and not the knob turning or the specific equipment itself."

    Vintage King Brings Audient Console To Sacramento City College
    Since 1992, the Commercial Music program at Sacramento City College has grown to offer students in-depth training on analog and digital gear. While the program advanced over the years, the studio had not. When Kirt Shearer came on-board as the program's Director in 2016, he saw that there was a need for an immediate renovation. "I'm not going to lie, necessity," Shearer says of the reason for a studio upgrade. "We had an Otari 54 from 1992 that was just at the end of its life. Plus, the overall facility just had not quite kept pace with trends and technology, so it was very much time for an upgrade." Continue reading →

Adding to the excitement of the program is the recent addition of an API 1608 console as the centerpiece of the school's recording studio.   "A few students may start our series of audio engineering classes with some knowledge of Pro Tools, Logic, or some other DAWs, but for the most part, they are blank slates," says ETSU Recording Lab Manager Benjamin Bateson.
