Minneapolis, MN (December 14, 2015)—Hennepin Technical College (HTC) recently installed Audient ASP4816 console, supplied by Vintage King L.A., for its Audio Production department. Replacing a 24-channel digital desk, HTC’s Audient console provides an upgrade to Studio B in the Audio Production department.
“Students have already noted that the simplicity in design and operation is easier to wrap their heads around than virtual controllers and ‘layers’ that may be found on some of the digital equipment in other rooms,” says Matt Holmes of the Audio Production Faculty. “The dedicated functions on the channel strips are useful in teaching students signal flow in their productions. So far, it has been useful in demonstration how an in-line mixer operates and is integrated into a modern DAW workflow,” he explains.
Hennepin Technical College is the largest standalone technical college in the Minnesota State College System, offering more than 45 fields of study on two campuses (Brooklyn Park and Eden Prairie, MN). It is also reported to be one of the most affordable colleges in the state of Minnesota, and boasts between 5,000 and 6,000 students annually, up to 70 of which pass through the Audio Production studios.
