SYDNEY – JMC Academy, the first college in Australia to have accredited courses in audio engineering, digital animation and digital television, has installed a Solid State Logic Duality Console to provide an industry-leading analogue workflow/DAW control platform for its advanced degree programs. The new Sydney campus is a multi-studio, 4,000 square-meter space offering degree and diploma courses in audio engineering, sound production, music performance, animation, game design, film and television production and entertainment business management.

"The new JMC Academy campus was purpose-built to satisfy the needs of our students both present and future, therefore a lot of thought went into the design of the studios, teaching spaces and the student areas," says Martin Cass, Managing Director, JMC Academy, Sydney. "We also wanted to ensure that, as a leading educator in audio in Australia, this new campus was set up with the right equipment. SSL, being synonymous with the recording industry for so long, was the clear choice, not only based on reputation but also on performance and versatility."

The new facility, located in the heart of the creative precinct of Sydney, includes four recording studios, seven rehearsal rooms, a large film and television studio with green screen, two MIDI labs, three animation and games labs and a film and TV edit suite, as well as an auditorium that seats over 400 people. Duality is used in Studio 4 for the practical recording and mixing classes for the Bachelor of Creative Technology (Audio Engineering and Sound Production) students.

"In choosing the Duality, we wanted our students to have access to cutting-edge, 21st century technology that is truly industry relevant,” continues Cass. “Duality is able to meet both the educational and industry needs of our students. The coursework on Duality is really the culmination of a student’s degree program. By having students work their way through a variety of studios and consoles, both analogue and digital, they become better engineers, allowing them to maximise both their own potential and that of the Duality by the time they graduate."

According to Cass, by nurturing, supporting and mentoring students who share a true passion and dedication for these industries, JMC Academy hopes to guide them into rewarding careers.

"The fact that both students and staff have access to the latest technology when working on the Duality is beneficial to all concerned," concludes Cass. "Through having the opportunity to access such an advanced console in the final stages of study sets our students up to be able to quickly adapt to the real world and any situation that may be thrown at them."

JMC Academy also has campus locations in Melbourne and Brisbane.
