Westlake Village, CA (May 24, 2013)—Mexico's Monterrey Institute of Technology sourced key equipment for audio production programs at the school's headquarters and new Mexico City campus from GC Pro.
The Mexico City Campus (CCM) has Ocean Way HR-3 Studio Monitors and an SSL AWS 948 console. The main campus in Monterrey has a Neve Genesys 32-input console, as well as Ocean Way HR-2 studio monitors. The equipment lists for each campus aim to provide students with a real-world environment for learning.
Founded 70 years ago, Monterrey Tech has over 90,000 students across 31 campuses in 25 cities in Mexico. In the last three years, the school instituted and expanded an audio production education curriculum that is now in place at three of its campuses.
Key equipment at all of the facilities supporting these audio production programs was sourced by Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users. Also involved was New York City-based Malvicino Design Group, a design and consulting firm specializing in architectural, acoustical and technical systems design and also a member of GC Pro's Affiliate Program.
Explains Horacio Malvicino, president of the Malvicino Design Group, "You want all the studios to have the latest equipment, but I also wanted each room to have some outboard gear and other items that were unique to each room, so that students would encounter something new in each studio."
