FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

College of Southern Nevada’s Audio Recording Technology Program
Educates Students on Using Waves Plugins and DiGiGrid

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, December 11, 2014 — John Jacobson, Audio Recording Technology Professor at the College of Southern Nevada (CSN), has chosen Waves Audio plugins and DiGiGrid audio interfaces for the Audio Recording Technology Program’s facility.

Equipped with an arsenal of Waves equipment, CSN’s audio setup includes the following: a main Control Room with an SSL AWS900 console, Pro Tools 11 HDX, and the Waves Diamond bundle; a second Control Room featuring a vintage Trident Series 65, Pro Tools 11 HD3, the Waves Diamond bundle, a DiGiGrid DLS, and Waves SoundGrid Studio software; the “Nomad,” a portable, self-contained digital recording system with a Waves Native Power Pack and Pro Tools 11 Native; and the Lab (three iMac recording setups for student use), each with a Waves Native Power Pack and Pro Tools 11 Native.

Prof. Jacobson notes, “The main reason for the College of Southern Nevada getting the DiGiGrid DLS was to update our second Control Room, called the Trident Room due to its having a vintage Trident Series 65 console in it. We have a recent Mac (‘tower’-type), and we have just upgraded to Pro Tools 11. But the three interfaces in the Trident Room are ‘legacy’ ones: Digidesign 96 and 192, and an Apogee Rosetta 800. These will NOT work with Pro Tools 11, and the cost to replace them was more than we could afford. Adding the DiGiGrid DLS interface was a cost-effective way to upgrade our Pro Tools system. In addition, the DLS (and the SoundGrid Studio software) do indeed provide near-zero latency and function as advertised. I haven't used the DLS’s processing-sharing capability yet, but that may very well come into play as we continue to expand and rearrange our facility at CSN. As innocent as the DLS front panel appears, it does warrant us calling it the ‘Magic Box’!”
