Los Angeles, CA (July 31, 2013)—The Recording Arts & Technology program at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, CA recently purchased five Focusrite RedNet interfaces.
Founded in May 2008, under the direction of Professor Jay Henry, a two-time Grammy award nominee for his engineering and production skills, the Recording Arts & Technology program prepares students for careers in the entertainment industries of music, television and film, utilizing music studios and labs for a hands-on learning experience that emphasizes fundamental recording technique and knowledge.
In recent weeks, Prof. Henry directed the purchase of two RedNet 5 HD interfaces for his Pro Tools|HD systems, coupled with three RedNet 2 16-channel analog I/O interfaces for his main recording and satellite mixing rooms. Once these units are installed, the two studios at the core of the Recording Arts and Technology program will be able to be completely networked, allowing access of audio between rooms.
"We've kept this program at the cutting edge since it began, and we've been waiting for a networked solution like RedNet to come along for a while," explains Henry, whose affinity for Focusrite products goes way back through his relationship with long-time colleague and current Focusrite Novation Inc. president Phil Wagner. "Phil and I go way back, and we understand how you need to both address the cutting edge of technology and also make sure that the sound is always the first consideration."
