The main studio at the Cape Audio College has been designed and fitted as a world class recording facility, giving students the opportunity to gain valuable experience with cutting edge industry tools. Although audio theory is of great importance, an employable engineer is an engineer with practical experience. Our students gain this valuable experience by producing various course assignments within these studios. Our studios are constantly evolving providing a real world environment that brings the best out of both engineer and artist alike.
The heart of the main control room is supported by an Audient ASP large format recording / mixing console, the kind of mixer you would find in any world class studio. This is backed up by the superb Radar digital multi-track recorder boasting some of the best sounding converters in the biz. Your audio is then controlled and manipulated using the latest in Protools technology running on extremely powerful Macintosh Pro workstation. Pair this with our extensive range of outboard processors and you have an extremely versatile analogue / digital hybrid environment designed specifically for the production of high quality music and audio.
The main control room has access to a large live area with enough inputs to record up to 24 instruments simultaneously. Further isolation is provided with 2 additional iso booths for effective live recording.
