Integrates Sonic Studio’s World-standard Mastering Systems Into Its Intensive Production Curriculum
Sonic Studio, LLC and the School of Media Arts & Studies within the Scripps College of Communication at Ohio University announced today that the prominent public research university located in Athens, Ohio has joined with Berklee College of Music, New York University and the SET-School in Germany in adopting Sonic Studio soundBlade Mastering, a preconfigured bundle of world-class audio mastering tools, including Sonic Studio’s legendary NoNOISE™ II restoration software, as a core component for the Ohio University School of Media Arts & Studies Music Production and Recording Industry Program. As a result, students seeking an undergraduate degree from the School of Media Arts & Studies will be using fully enabled soundBlade Mastering systems as a core component of their production, delivery and industry studies.
“The music production and recording industry emphasis is hugely popular within the School of Media Arts & Studies; as a matter of fact, our entrance requirements are set at a higher standard than the typical undergrad admissions policy for other majors at Ohio University. That’s because our program is intensive, hands-on and world-class; and soundBlade fits perfectly with this core tenant of our curriculum,” said Scott Titsworth, Dean of the Scripps College of Communication at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. “soundBlade provides our students with the opportunity to access real-world technology and gain hands-on knowledge using Sonic Studio’s digital audio technology; which is exactly what our students need as they venture into their chosen career.”
As key part of the partnership, Sonic Studio will provide music production students with a soundBlade Mastering software bundle which includes a soundBlade SE workstation, the Sonic Studio Mastering EQ plug-in with 14 filter topologies and NoNOISE II Manual DeClicking audio restoration for use during their course of study. Also included in the soundBlade Mastering package is Wholegrain Digital Systems Quartet DYNPeq a revolutionary EQ and dynamics plugin that has set the standard for EQ and level controls, as well as Sonic Studio’s Process, a new application featuring two of Sonic’s ultra-resolution sample rate conversion algorithms.
“Sonic is dedicated to continuing a legacy of audio excellence in professional mastering, and we are excited to empower the music engineering and mastering study programs for a new generation of audio engineers,” said Jonathan Reichbach, president and chief engineer of Sonic Studio located in Marin County, California. “Ohio University’s School of Media Arts & Studies represents a key edition to our expanding group of leading educational institutions dedicated to providing the best technologies and teaching materials to their students.”
Students with courses beginning in the Fall semester of 2013 will have access to soundBlade Mastering systems for the term of their program. Upon completion of their study, Sonic Studio has agreed to provide very special educational pricing consideration to students to enable them to enter their career with their own complete soundBlade system.
