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. Contents of the locker include one KSM313, two KSM32, two KSM44A, one KSM42, two KSM141, four SM57, two SM27, one Beta 52A, one Beta 57A, one Beta 91A, three Beta 98AMP, two Beta 181/S each with an additional Omni capsule, one SM7B, one VP88, and one A27M.

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. Previous judges have included esteemed musicians and recording engineers, including Ed Cherney, Keith Olsen, Mike Clink, Frank Filipetti, Sylvia Massey, and Elliot Scheiner, among many others.

“Every year the caliber of student talent improves, and we’re amazed by the quality of their compositions,” said Terri Hartman, Director of Marketing Communications, Shure Americas. “As we move into our eighth year of the competition, we’re proud to continue supporting students who are pursing careers in the recording and music industry, and we look forward to another round of impressive submissions this year.”

The contestants chosen in the random drawing will be posted on Shure’s website on or around October 31, and dedicated microphone lockers will be sent in the following days. The winner of the Fantastic Scholastic Recording Competition, as well as the runner-up and honorable mention distinctions, will be announced on April 30, 2012.

It’s packed with techniques and insights that will satisfy the most raging Dubstep thirst!

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.”

Propellerhead Software announces Reason Record Education

Propellerhead has launched Reason Record Education, new packages consolidating the Reason Record application suite at a special price for schools and institutions.

Propellerhead Software Reason Record Education

Available in license packs of 1, 5 and 10, Reason Record Education pairs the world-renowned, award-winning music production environment Reason with Record, the recording software for musicians.

In the classroom, the Reason and Record combination has many distinct advantages over other music software programs, allowing students to focus on music creation and production, not system maintenance and software incompatibilities. Students can freely experiment and find solutions to audio problems while maintaining creative flow during music production, invariably spending more time on their projects and assignments.

Reason and Record’s studio simulation metaphor allows students to configure (and reconfigure) a complete sound studio, selecting and wiring audio processors and generators, while the large format console model provides a rare chance for students to prepare for work in large, professional studios.

Propellerhead’s network multilicense system lets schools install the Reason and Record on as many computers as they like. With an Ignition Key connected to the USB port on a server or a computer on the network, the system will allow students launch the software on any computer on the network until the license limit is reached.

Reason Record Education is available for sale worldwide today from authorized Propellerhead resellers. Upgrades to Reason Record Education for Reason version 1–4 are also available at attractive prices for schools and institutions.

  • Reason Record Education Single Pack, MSRP of $299 USD / €249 EUR
  • Reason Record Education Five Pack, MSRP of $1199 USD / €999 EUR
  • Reason Record Education Ten Pack, MSRP of $1999 USD / €1679 EUR
  • Reason Record Education Single Pack Upgrade, MSRP of $129 USD / €99 EUR
  • Reason Record Education Five Pack Upgrade, MSRP of $399 USD / €345 EUR
  • Reason Record Education Ten Pack Upgrade, MSRP of $649 USD / €579 EUR

There is no better way to learn a craft than actually doing it for real. This is the ethos behind Point Blank Music College and seems especially true of their live Sound Engineering Certificate course which gives you the opportunity to mix 6 live gigs in 6 months at various top London venues.

But don’t worry, it’s not the ducking stool – you won’t be thrown in to see if you sink or swim! The Live Sound Engineering Certificate course is a 24 week journey taught by professionals from The Barfly, Islington’s 02 Academy 2 and The Garage. These are the venues that helped launch the careers of Coldplay, Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes, The Gossip and many more.

As well as supervised, hands on practice at sound engineering at 6 gigs (one for each month of the course) you will be taught in detail the ins and outs of getting the most out of any PA to make the bands you mix sound hot. The 250 capacity main room at O2 Academy 2 Islington is a key venue on the London gig scene and a great place for you to learn the art of live mixing in a proper working environment. Everyone knows that live is where the music business makes its money at the moment: one of the effects of decreased record sales on the music industry has been the re-emergence of live performance as a major source of revenue for artists.
