Cape Town ASE campus opens with Audient

Published: MEA

SOUTH AFRICA: Founded in 1997, the Academy of Sound Engineering (ASE) is a Johannesburg-based educational institute that offers a diploma in audio technology in addition to the only sound engineering technology Bachelor of Science degree in South Africa. Almost two decades since opening its doors, the academy has established a second campus in Cape Town with South African Music Award (SAMA) winning engineer Keith Farquharson overseeing the technical specifications for the new facility. A long-time user of Audient solutions, Mr Farquharson drew upon his studio and live production experience, specifying the manufacturer’s ASP8024 console.

‘I’ve had an Audient console in every studio I’ve owned since I bought my first ASP8024 in 2001,’ Mr Farquharson explained. ‘It was the ideal choice for the school in terms of value-for-money, reliability and most of all, the intuitive way the console is laid out makes it perfect for teaching.’

In addition to the ASP8024, which has been installed with a patchbay in the campus’ main studio, iD14 interfaces have been equipped at each of the workstations in the building’s computer lab. Meanwhile, Audient’s Zen small format automated recording system has been installed in the smaller mixing and mastering room.

‘Significant time and investment have been spent on creating recording spaces that not only sound good, but give students the feel of being in a genuine recording studio environment rather than a classroom,’ noted Mr Farquharson. ‘To that end, having the consistency of Audient hardware in each room, has made a tremendous contribution to that. The next purchase will definitely be the ASP8024 Heritage Edition.’
