A random drawing on or about October 24 will narrow down the registrants to ten competing schools. Each participant will receive a standardized microphone locker from Shure that must be used to complete a recording project as part of the competition.

Competing teams from each school are required to track and mix an original piece of music, which will then be judged by a panel of industry professionals who will evaluate the recordings based on their overall fidelity, clarity, sonic balance, and creativity in selection and placement of the microphones. The winning school will be awarded the entire Shure microphone locker, valued at more than $10,000. In addition, students on one of the winning teams will receive prizes ranging from a KSM42 microphone, valued at $999 each to SRH840 headphones, valued at $250 each.

Point Blank has announced its Dubstep Course in Logic launches next week.

Award-winning music school Point Blank Online has seen so many students come through its virtual doors wanting to learn how to make Dubstep using Ableton Live that they’ve converted their ground breaking learning program to Apple Logic Pro due to popular demand.

Point Blank Online

As Dubstep develops as a genre, so the Point Blank team takes this opportunity to update the course material as well as convert to Logic from Ableton. Now they are covering a broader base of styles designed to help you create ribcage rattlers, chilled grooves, experimental dubs or something edgier. It’s packed with techniques and insights that will satisfy the most raging Dubstep thirst! With 1-2-1 video feedback from a pro producer each week – DVR™ – your tracks will improve quicker than you can say ‘wobble bass’! If you’ve got the groove in you, this class will bring it out.

Co developers for the Dubstep Course are Jonny Miller and Danny Lewis. Jonny is an acclaimed producer, DJ and label manager who has racked up releases on labels including Aquatic Lab, Sidestepper Recordings, K7 and Twisted Funk. Jonny examines a broad range of production techniques from bass heavy dubs through to more techno influenced flavours. Point Blank’s own Danny J keeps the Brosteppers happy with scientific analyses of a range of heavy artillery: out there mental noise techniques and flavours broken down for you logically, step-by-step.

In addition to one-to-one video feedback, tutors also host a weekly live Masterclass where students can discuss that week’s content, raise technical questions and share information. Course materials including video tutorials, project files, audio resources, DVR™ and detailed course notes are available to students for a full year from enrolment.

Courses start monthly from 1st Aug 2011. Class sizes are strictly limited and enrolment is now underway. Course Fee: £355 GBP.

Shure Associates pitch in for ‘Chicago Cares’

Related: , , Posted in news on Jul 14, 2011 - comment 0 comments

Shure has announced its Associates participation in the 18th Annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon, an event that brings more than 6,000 volunteers together to improve Chicago’s public schools.

With images of relief organizations responding to crises in remote regions of the globe appearing on television almost daily, it is all too easy to forget the everyday needs of people in our own neighborhoods. And while massive events require massive responses, the actions of one person can make an important difference on a local level.

Shure Chicago Cares

Recently, dozens of Shure Associates participated in the 18th Annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon. The event is the city’s largest day of community service, when more than 6,000 volunteers come together to transform public schools and improve learning environments for more than 18,000 Chicago students.

“This was the third year that Shure sponsored the Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon, and many of our Associates were repeat participants,” said Vicky Kraft, HRIS Manager at Shure, who volunteered for the third time. “You work hard all day long, but at the end of the day you know that you’ve really accomplished something. The principal, parents, and students at the Academy were very enthusiastic at our arrival and very appreciative of our day’s work.”

More than 40 Shure Associates, family members and friends participated in this year’s event. They were assigned to the Brentano Math & Science Academy, which serves Pre-K through 8th grade students on Chicago’s north side. The volunteers painted eight classrooms, three stairwells, three hallways, and a mural. They also built and painted eight benches and some storage shelves, and painted hopscotch and four-squares on the school’s playground. All of the work was done using donated materials.

“Mr. Shure strongly believed that individual volunteerism is one of the best ways to build stronger communities,” said Sandy LaMantia, President and Chief Executive Officer at Shure Incorporated. “We are inspired by the Associates who gave their time and energy to help create a better place to learn for everyone.”

Shure and Guitar Center Studios Give Musicians Room(s) to Rock

Funding for school music programs is disappearing nationwide, but there’s no shortage of people with a burning desire to sing or play an instrument. Recognizing a need for education, rehearsal, and recording facilities, microphone manufacturer Shure Incorporated is providing microphones and headphones to the growing list of Guitar Center Studios, as the music retailer expands its music education facilities in the U.S.

Guitar Center Studios

“Music education programs are disappearing from public schools, and individual lesson providers are challenged to deliver a broad offering of learning opportunities and tools,” says Tom Hemphill, Director of Guitar Center Studios. To counter this trend, Guitar Center Studios has taken the fundamental elements of music education—learning to play, connecting with peers, rehearsing together, and recording—and made them the cornerstones of a progressive learning pedagogy.

“Guitar Center Studios not only provides best-in-class music education, but a wide range of opportunities to apply that education,” Hemphill continues. “We serve as a community where musicians can learn, meet, rehearse, and record using professional equipment.” The facilities use a subscription model under which students can take advantage of any or all of these resources for one price.

In addition to providing music lessons and training in Pro Tools and Logic software, the program encourages musicians to get together, rehearse, and record themselves. Having access to professional-caliber equipment is a key component of this part of the program, and Shure has outfitted every Guitar Center Studios facility with SM58® handheld microphones, MX395 low-profile microphones and SRH240 professional headphones. “Shure has been a tireless supporter of what we’re doing, and we’re grateful,” says Hemphill. The microphones and headphones enable performances to be recorded easily, allowing musicians to review their performances and identify areas for improvement. “You can walk in, rehearse, and walk out with a CD that you can learn from,” says Hemphill.

“The Guitar Center brand is known and respected by musicians at every level, from beginners to working professionals,” says Abby Kaplan, Sales Director, Western U.S., at Shure Incorporated. “We’re proud to partner with Guitar Center Studios to help develop the next generation of performers.”
