Technology in the classroom

        Hi all, there is such a wide variety of technology in our audio classrooms/labs/studios. I’ve seen everything from in the box to control surfaces to full blown large format consoles. For teachers, what is your favorite to teach on? For students, what technology has been most helpful to you?

        I’ll start. My favorite console to teach on was an SSL Duality. I loved how graphic the signal flow was on the TFT screen, and I also appreciated how it could accommodate both digital and analog signals simultaneously.

          I’m not sure what’s the best console to teach, but I can tell you what’s a really esoteric and hard to learn, and hard to teach control surface, at least for me: The Avid S1. I still haven’t mastered its use. So I’m still mousing on Pro Tools, and feeling pretty comfortable with it. That plus the new custom Keyboard Shortcuts, a long time coming, Avid!!!

            I’m really liking the SSL Duality as well for teaching. I find that you can teach basic signal flow to complex mixing and routing on this console.

              My favourite would have to be Reason software. Virtual rack with virtual patchable leads for both CV and audio which follow real-world principles of signal flow. Anything from simple FX chains to massive complex modular synthesis. Every student gets their own console. Easy to assess work.
