Sydney, Australia (April 24, 2013)—JMC Academy's new Sydney campus includes a studio equipped with a Solid State Logic Duality console.
JMC Academy, the first college in Australia to have accredited courses in audio engineering, digital animation and digital television, has installed a Duality to provide an analogue workflow/DAW control platform for its advanced degree programs. The new Sydney campus (JMC Academy also has locations in Melbourne and Brisbane) is a multi-studio, 4,000 sq-m space offering degree and diploma courses in audio engineering, sound production, music performance, animation, game design, film and television production and entertainment business management.
"The new JMC Academy campus was purpose-built to satisfy the needs of our students both present and future, therefore a lot of thought went into the design of the studios, teaching spaces and the student areas," says Martin Cass, managing director, JMC Academy, Sydney. "We also wanted to ensure that, as a leading educator in audio in Australia, this new campus was set up with the right equipment. SSL, being synonymous with the recording industry for so long, was the clear choice, not only based on reputation but also on performance and versatility."
The new facility, located in the heart of the creative precinct of Sydney, includes four recording studios, seven rehearsal rooms, a large film and television studio with green screen, two MIDI labs, three animation and games labs, and a film and TV edit suite, as well as an auditorium that seats over 400 people. Duality is used in Studio 4 for the practical recording and mixing classes for the Bachelor of Creative Technology (Audio Engineering and Sound Production) students.
"The fact that both students and staff have access to the latest technology when working on the Duality is beneficial to all concerned," concludes Cass. "Having the opportunity to access such an advanced console in the final stages of study sets our students up to be able to quickly adapt to the real world and any situation that may be thrown at them."
