SSR, who are a training facility based in Manchester and London providing music, film and media training, have just taken delivery of an Avid S6 mixing console, the first to go into an education facility in the UK.
The arrival of the expanded 24-channel desk with its three TFT displays and M40 engine will be the focal point of their flagship audio post production suite in Manchester. It is housed in a customised AKA Design furniture, with a Pro Tools HDX system for use on SSR’s industry and degree programmes, as well as official Pro Tools certification courses. The new console heralds a significant expansion alongside an existing array of Avid equipment at SSR, including: ICON, D-Show, ISIS, C|24 and Artist Series. Tom Aston, SSR’s Technical Director told us…
Taking delivery of the Avid S6 is a clear example of our commitment to providing the latest and most industry relevant technology to our students. Having been established for over 30 years, SSR has always been a pioneer in education; from being the first audio engineering school in the UK and the first to deliver official Pro Tools certification in Europe, we are extremely proud to continue this ethos by being the first in the UK with an S6.
I am looking forward to seeing the S6 in place when I go into SSR, Manchester to present a guest lecture there on Wednesday.
