SOS1 SOS2

MELVILLE, NY — Korg introduces the SOUND on SOUND (SOS) Unlimited Track Recorder, which enables musicians to capture and develop musical ideas as they happen, wherever they are. Battery-powered and completely self-contained, the SOS contains a high-quality stereo microphone and a built-in speaker for all-in-one recording and monitoring.

Unlike other portable recorders (even multi-track), the SOS allows for an infinite number of overdubs or alternate takes to be recorded. Each track, take or overdub is recorded as an individual CD-quality 16-bit / 44.1 kHz WAV file, and saved directly to a microSD or microSDHC card. Accurate BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) timing information is embedded in each track, meaning all tracks will automatically line up when imported into a computer-based DAW system for further editing, mixdown and final playback. The SOS can record up to 200 songs in the traditional linear manner, or be set to loop a specific section. Memory consumption is roughly 100 recorded minutes per GB (gigabyte). more

GC Pro Puts Together the Perfect Package for Students at the Pennsylvania Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences

— An Apple MacBook Pro laptop computer, Avid Digidesign Pro Tools LE recording software and an M-Audio MIDI controller get students off to a flying start —

PARAS

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, January 11, 2010 — The Pennsylvania Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, the only privately licensed professional audio education facility in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, now supplies its students with a personal recording suite of advanced recording tools assembled and supplied by Guitar Center Professional, (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users. The toolset consists of an Apple MacBook Pro® laptop computer already loaded with Avid Digidesign Pro Tools LE recording software and an M-Audio MIDI controller/interface. The Academy is able to include this suite of recording tools in its current tuition, thanks to discounts provided by GC Pro as part of its efforts to encourage education in the recording arts. The laptop, software and controller package became available to all incoming students as of October 2009, and has also been made available to recent graduates of the Academy’s degree programs.

“This has been a fantastic program for our students,” exclaims Paul Chiacchierini, Vice President of Music operations at the Pennsylvania Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, which is based at both the 4,000-square-foot Racetrack Sound Studios in Gettysburg and at a new 6,500-square-foot facility in Philadelphia. Chiacchierini, who works with colleagues Sal Chandon, the school’s Director, and Chief Engineer Shane Moore, says that over a dozen of the student recording packages have been given out so far, reflecting the Academy’s intensive student-to-teacher ratio of 8:1. “We like to keep the class sizes small, so that every student receives as much attention as they need,” he explains. “But even with two studios in each location, not everyone can get lab time exactly when they want it. So this package literally lets them do their lab work whenever it suits them best.” more
