Palo Alto, CA (January 12, 2009)–Euphonix, Inc. has announced that the SAE Institute is incorporating Euphonix MC Control and MC Mix media controllers into 25 SAE Institutes across four continents.
Euphonix’ Artist Series media controllers offer control over Pro Tools, Logic Studio and other software applications, providing SAE with flexibility in integrating MC Control and MC Mix into its curriculum.
“SAE is the world leader in audio and creative media training, and we are very excited to have our MC Control and MC Mix chosen for their state-of-the-art institutes,” stated Martin Kloiber, Euphonix CEO. “The power and flexibility of the Artist Series is the perfect match for SAE’s innovative teaching approach, and provides students with cutting-edge media controllers that can be used with virtually any audio or video application.”
The Artist Series uses EuCon, the Euphonix-developed high-speed control protocol that enables simultaneous control of multiple applications and workstations over an Ethernet cable. This allows SAE students to remotely access and control any workstation located on the network. EuCon also enables instantaneous switching between multiple Mac workstations for projects that require using dedicated audio and video workstations. The small footprint of the MC Control and MC Mix allows these media controllers to integrate into any studio or lab, fitting between a computer keyboard and screen.
Euphonix has worked with software developers like Apple, Steinberg, MOTU and others to integrate native EuCon support into their DAWs to provide high-resolution, high-speed control over almost all DAW functions. The MC Control and MC Mix also support the HUI and Mackie Control protocols.
“We are delighted to be installing Euphonix MC Control and MC Mix media controllers in so many of our campuses around the world,” says SAE’s owner Tom Misner. “Students who attend SAE Institutes learn how to use a huge variety of hardware and software, giving them the widest possible skill set to help them with their chosen careers. The EuCon protocol may only have been around a short while but has already become an industry standard, such is the caliber of these superb media controllers. Euphonix is a heavyweight in the world of recording and now our students get to see first-hand why the gear it produces has made such an impact in today’s studio environments.”
