Nashville, TN (August 26, 2014)—The Blackbird Academy, a Studio and Live Sound Engineering School in Nashville, recently integrated the Roland M-48 Personal Mixing System into its program, adding to its hands-on education approach.
"At The Blackbird Academy, our prime emphasis is teaching the students to provide the client with high-quality sound and service throughout the production process,” says co-director and instructor Kevin Becka. "The compact, M-48 mixers punch this ticket by being easy to use, having a full set of features like EQ, reverb, panning and level controls, plus they sound great. I have experience with this system in a live sound setting and am amazed at how well it fits into our tracking, and overdub sessions at The Blackbird Academy."
The M-48 mixers are used every day in Studio I at The Blackbird Academy, integrating in with the facility's existing Cat-5 runs. “We are very happy with how the M-48 works with our curriculum, studio workflows and how the students have taken to the system,” said Becka.
