Universal Audio partners with Abbey Road Institute

Universal Audio and Abbey Road Institute have formed a new partnership, allowing Abbey Road Institute facilities throughout Europe to educate their students in the art of recording with Apollo audio interfaces and UAD Powered Plug-Ins.

The alliance provides Abbey Road Institute students full access to these industry-standard recording tools, designed to help them develop their creativity and music production skills.

The institute now includes UA’s Apollo Twin desktop interface at every workstation, equipping students with its class-leading resolution and Realtime UAD Processing and allowing them to record with near-zero latency through the full range of UAD Powered Plug-Ins.

Abbey Road Institute is an educational initiative from Abbey Road Studios offering a unique audio engineering and music production programme. The course incorporates the vast technical and creative heritage of the studios, and the curriculum was developed by audio educational specialists in conjunction with Abbey Road Studios engineers.

“Music producers are all influenced by the music they admire, but then they make it their own. Our programmes are designed to perfect that process: we believe in learning legendary production techniques, and then finding your own voice,” said Rudi Grieme, CEO of Abbey Road Institute. “Universal Audio’s legacy of high-quality products is a perfect match for our programmes. Our students get full access to their classic plug-ins, used by professionals in the industry, which they can incorporate in their own productions.”

The course covers all aspects of music production and engineering, focusing on three main areas: sound engineering, production techniques, and the music business. The full time programme is taught by music industry experts while giving students access to state-of-the-art production and recording facilities.

"We are proud to collaborate with Abbey Road Institute to educate and promote the next generation of music performers, producers, and recording engineers. ARI and UA share the same vision and both names stand synonymously for excellence,” remarked Bill Putnam Jr., CEO and founder of Universal Audio. “We are excited to become even more involved in their young artist development programmes.”
