Burlington, MA (May 29, 2014)—Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music in Hollywood, CA, an Avid Learning Partner, has expanded its partnership with Avid with the addition of the System 5 digital audio mixing console.
This implementation builds upon Musicians Institute’s existing Avid workflow, which includes the Pro Tools|HDX system. With Pro Tools|HDX integration, System 5 is now fully networked with the recently announced Avid MediaCentral Platform, giving the Musicians Institute access to tools for collaboration, music production, and, eventually, monetization of their own content.
Mehdi Hassine, music and post-production instructor at Musicians Institute, noted, “As our students transition into the real world, it’s critical that they have solid practical experience on the leading audio systems to prepare them for the pressures of our highly demanding media production world.”
Avid systems are used in every lab, studio and main live performance room at Musicians Institute’s facilities. It offers hands-on experience in a variety of consoles and control surfaces as part of its audio engineering program, including Avid ICON D-Control, D-Show and SC48. All of its studios are currently transitioning to Pro Tools|HDX.
Continued Hassine, “As an Avid Learning Partner, our students are able to distinguish themselves as they enter the profession by proving their dedication and excellence through the certification process. It also means we stay current and relevant with the latest hardware, software and curriculum. From training our instructors to providing technical support, Avid has been a key partner in our facility and curriculum.”
