Music Production students get an education in recording arts engineering at Universal Audio.

Student field trip to UNIVERSAL AUDIO. Learned about designing for Thunderbolt audio interfaces, analog recording hardware, and UAD audio plug-ins. Also got to see the UA recording studio and meet UA Founder, Bill Putnam. Pretty cool! Felt like we had the golden ticket to the Willy Wonka Factory!


Universal Audio installs their Apollo into Classroom Studio

Scotts Valley High’s ROP Music Production and Recording Arts class got Universal Audio’s Apollo interface installed into their recording studio this week.

“The Apollo features all new A/D and D/A conversion for extremely detailed and open sound, giving you measurably the lowest noise and highest dynamic range in their class.” – Universal Audio

Students will now be able to record their original songs written in class on the most advanced technology used in the industry!
