As part of a recent series of industry visitors, indie music bloggers Bowlegsmusic.com came in to show our students how they film live sessions. Kurb, a band featuring current Northbrook students, and who where already fans of the blog stepped up to be filmed. Bowlegs’ Gavin Williams said “ It’s really interesting to film in such an amazing studio space, Northbrook have something really special here”. Check out the results!
We invited special guest; J-Felix (Tru-Thoughts) to spend a day recording at Northbrook’s brand new studio facility. Focusrite also came down to watch as the new Rednet system was put through its paces, as one band played whilst being captured in various studios and software platforms around the department.
The Rednet system allows multiple studios to ‘dial-in’ to a live room and record the band; students recorded the band using a variety of DAWs such as Logic, Pro Tools and Ableton right across the department, all at the same time with no latency. The brand new network based audio system performed flawlessly with 20 computers all recording at the same time.
Mick Feltham, Music curriculum leader, chats to the designers and builders of the new studio complex at Northbrook College about the progress of the project.
