Ready for the new academic year, HHB Communications Ltd have supplied and installed an Avid 32 fader, M40 S6 control surface to Futureworks based in the centre of Manchester’s Media Hub.
Futureworks School of Media provides world-class education and training in Sound, Music Production, Film & TV, Games, Animation and Visual Effects. Their purpose built premises are equipped with state of the art studios and high-spec production facilities built to the best industry standards. Futureworks is an Avid Learning Partner and offers ProTools accredited music and post-production courses.
Working closely with the Head of the school and Avid Pro Tools Master Instructor Rob Magoolagan, HHB installed and commissioned the S6 over two days. Futureworks’ continual review of industry trends lead them to decide the time was right to replace the Avid D-Control Icon in their main film mixing studio with a large format Avid S6. The system is a 32 fader M40 configuration in a seven-foot frame, also supplied was an Avid MTRX audio interface frame, set up to provide surround sound monitoring.
‘Futureworks students have the edge when it comes to working with industry current technology. Our new Avid S6 Cinema Studio keeps them in sync with global mixing for picture trends and workflow’ states Rob Magoolagan (Head of School of Sound and Music Production).
Steve Angel, Group Sales Director at HHB added; ‘Futureworks’ audio facilities are very impressive, offering students the most up to date technology in a world class studio environment. With dedicated Pro Tools courses the Avid S6 is a perfect addition to the schools already comprehensive list of studio equipment’.
