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…

jdk_r22.JPG

JESSUP, MARYLAND – DECEMBER 2009: JDK Audio, the new brand developed and engineered by legendary analog innovator API, announces the fourth product in its line of robust signal processing equipment. The R22 is a two-channel, rack-mount compressor with linkable stereo operation that uses true RMS power summing, a patented Thrust circuit for chest-hitting low-end, and easy to use, refreshingly musical control of all parameters. JDK Audio will formally introduce the R22 compressor at the 2010 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California at API Booth #6411. Visitors will have the opportunity to listen to multitrack material through the new R22 and other JDK gear at the JDK listening station.

The R22 interconnects with both balanced XLR and quarter-inch inputs and outputs. Because the R22 has LED indicators and switchable analog metering of the output level and gain reduction, it’s easy to optimize gain structure. Switchable hard- or soft-knee compression, combined with variable threshold, ratio, and make-up gain controls deliver a wide range of compression textures for an equally wide range of source material. Equally at home in a project studio or commercial recording facility, the R22 shines with a ruler-flat frequency response out to 50 kHz. more…
