London, UK (February 25, 2016)—Point Blank Music School in London has purchased a new 48-channel SSL Duality δelta SuperAnalogue console while doubling its core production portfolio and increasing its longest available course length from one to two years.
The expansion into a new facility near its existing London base brings a new industry-focused element to the school for students looking to cultivate full time careers in commercial music, film, broadcast and games production. “We’re a cutting edge music school,” says Rob Cowan, the owner of Point Blank. ” If students are going to go on and work in commercial studios, we need to train them on the best there is.”
The School is based in London and Los Angeles, and offers everything from music production and sound engineering though live sound, songwriting, singing, DJing, radio production, and music business. The new Point Blank facility incorporates seven studios and training rooms, including a live recording area, all connected to a central space that the school is calling The Hub, which encourages student collaboration, while providing a venue for master classes.
“Students can hang out, but we can also do workshops in there,” says Cowan. “We can easily rearrange the furniture and comfortably accommodate up to around 70 people. It’s fantastic for when we host guest producers and artists, and so on. We can now deliver all the new modules that we’ve been so desperate to start, and at the same time provide a better student experience.”
Cowan refers to the Duality room as both a studio and a classroom in one: “That is our number one space – a showpiece studio where we’re going to teach more advanced sound engineering, more advanced mixing.
