It doesn’t get any better than this for a Live Sound or Audio Engineering student: an empty big top, three vans of PA system, lights and power, and three days to hone their craft with various artists.
I recently caught up with Adam, who is about to finish his year placement at Focusrite; here are his thoughts and reflections.
“I’m currently studying Bsc (Hons) Audio Engineering and I’ll be starting my final year in September. I applied to the course because, unlike many people, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. My degree title is actually in the name of the company I’ve been working for – Focusrite Audio Engineering Ltd. I picked this course and University specifically because it stood out head and shoulders above the rest. I visited a few other Universities with much stricter entry requirements before visiting Solent but the team, facilities and course in general stood out by a mile.”
It’s always nice to hear what our graduates are up to and we were especially pleased so see Stephen recently become the face of his profession after Anderson Acoustics produced an infographic showing a day in the life of a sound tester.
Two students from Media Technology drove to Chepstow earlier in the month to provide noise monitoring services with Vanguardia Consulting at Balter Festival. The festival ran between 2nd and 4th June and describes itself as a “travelling convoy of misfits and weirdos, wacked-out racers and disco divas”.
A hat-trick of staff from Media Technology went up to G.R.A.S. Sound in Vibration in Bedford yesterday (15/05/17) for a series of seminars on headphone and headset measurements.
Southampton Solent University was pleased to host the Audio Engineering Society’s Up Your Output! event this past weekend 18th & 19th of March, co-organised by the University of Southampton’s Institute of Sound and Vibration (ISVR).
On Friday 17th March 2017 a group of Media technology students descended on Naim Audio’s headquarters in Salisbury for a tour of their manufacturing facilities and a demonstration of their flagship ‘Statement’ product range.
