Buena Park, CA (August 29, 2016)—Ohio University's Scripps College of Communication, School of Media Arts & Studies (MDIA) now houses a 32-fader Yamaha Nuage DAW audio post production system and 30-plus seats of Nuendo 7.1.
Preparing audio engineers and content creators is key to the curriculum at the school, which is located in Athens, OH. Vintage King L.A. and Yamaha Professional Audio Steinberg staff supplied and installed the equipment at the Steven L. Schoonover Post-Production and Critical Listening Lab.
The facility also houses a Dynaudio BM15A 5.1 surround-monitoring array, featuring nine Foley pits, an ADR stage, projection capabilities for post-production mixing, and more. The MDIA Sound Studios offer a Rupert Neve Designs 5088 analog-centric music recording and mixing studio with tracking rooms alongside two other control rooms, including the brand-new post/listening lab and a mixing/mastering facility.
Kyle P. Snyder, Lecturer and Outreach Coordinator within the School of Media Arts & Studies comments, “We made the decision that adopting Nuendo as an editing platform—which isn’t necessarily normative but is absolutely the superior tool—was the way to go. This allows us to focus more on technique, backed up by the trademark Yamaha stability that Nuage brings to the table.”
He adds, “The system is a game changer for post sessions, making them very easy. I was very impressed with how Yamaha and Steinberg developed the system. Working with everyone at Yamaha has made it so much easier and helped us through the transition process. This is the kind of corporate support you just don’t see often.”
The college also boasts a second 16-fader Nuage system in its Immersive Media Initiative facilities within Ohio University’s Game Research and Immersive Design Lab. “There is absolutely no better software for creating audio for virtual and augmented reality than Nuendo,” according to Snyder.
