SSR Jakarta brings Allen & Heath into the classroom
INDONESIA: An Allen & Heath GS-R24 firewire recording mixer and Pro Tools 10 have been installed in SSR’s Indonesian teaching studio in Jakarta. The equipment will be used to help students on the establishment’s flagship Audio Engineering Techniques and Technology course learn knowledge and techniques such as analogue signal flow and patching.
SSR was originally founded in 1984 in Manchester, England, and was the first audio engineering school in the UK. SSR Jakarta launched in 2011 and has built a reputation as one of Indonesia's best audio training facilities, running courses including the Audio Engineering Techniques and Technology (AETT) course.
‘Our GS-R24 studio provides a good and comfortable environment with a great acoustic design. Students have an ideal environment to learn the fundamentals of analogue signal flow, patching and digital recording,’ said Jason O Bryan, head of the AETT programme. ‘GS-R24 integrates with Pro Tools and it’s like having a dedicated HUI controller embedded in the analogue heart of desk. You press a channel select button, and you get instant access to all key functions in the master section.’
In addition to the studio, SSR Jakarta also has an 80-capacity live venue used exclusively by SSR’s Live Sound Engineering, Live Sound for Worship, and Digital Film and Music Video Production courses. The live venue is equipped with an Allen & Heath ML4000 VCA console, GL2400 dual function mixer and iLive-T80 with iDR-32 digital mixing system for students to experience both analogue and digital systems.
