The Digital Music program at Hostos Community College is proud to announce the opening of the new recording studio facility. This million-dollar facility will train students in music production techniques teaching them to be sound engineers, foley recordists, and record producers for all forms of media from radio and television to film and game design. It will also help expand media production capabilities of the Digital Design & Animation programs by providing videographers and animators with more production space.
The facility is equipped with Apple computers running the Industry Standard Pro Tools Audio application for State-of-the-art professional production experience, and is capable of sound and video production with seven separate recording studios wired to a central sound room. This allows for signal from the sound room to be split between the seven rooms and for students to individually have real time recording and mixing opportunities. Each room is also a module in the recording chain capable of being a control room as well as a sound room for an amplifier, vocalist, or instrumentalist.
The Hostos Digital programs involves students in a great deal of collaborative work, and this facility will promote this by involving sound designers with videographers, animators, and game designers. Each computer in the facility will be outfitted with applications in all these media development formats allowing for a host of production techniques to be undertaken.
