New Berklee music studio complex

Berklee College of Music has deployed Avid audio production solutions to enable collaborative workflows between its newly unveiled 16-story tower in Boston and its campus in Valencia, Spain.

“One of our founding philosophies is that students need practical, professional skills for successful, sustainable music careers,” said David Mash, senior vice president for innovation, strategy and technology at Berklee College of Music, and chairman of the executive board of directors for the Avid Customer Association. “With Avid audio solutions, we can provide access to industry-standard tools that will enable them to excel in the professional world. The Avid Everywhere vision complements our commitment to giving students real-world experience with collaborative workflows on a global scale.”

For both campuses, Berklee has chosen audio solutions that are integrated with the new Avid MediaCentral Platform. These include Pro Tools | Software, Pro Tools|HD systems with Avid analogue and digital HD interfaces, Sibelius music notation software, and two System 5 digital audio mixing consoles. Berklee has also selected Pro Tools as the official DAW on all laptops distributed to every incoming student as part of its Berklee Bundle Licensing Program (BBLP).

“As the world’s premier music learning lab, Berklee plays a critical role in the industry by developing the music professionals of tomorrow,” said Jennifer Smith, senior vice president and CMO, Avid. “By embracing change, anticipating trends, advancing its curriculum, and adopting cutting-edge technology, Berklee sets a new standard for music education, and gives students hands-on experience with the same tools that audio professionals use to create award-winning music.”
