New York, NY (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
The New York campus of SAE Institute, recently selected by Vibe Magazine as the best audio recording and engineering school in America, will be moving this summer to Chelsea’s burgeoning technology and cultural district on the west side of Midtown South.
SAE New York will occupy two floors at 218 West 18th St. Notable tenants in this recently renovated building include Company 3, a comprehensive post-production facility, and Microsoft's Yammer, an enterprise social network. Currently under construction on the ground floor is the event space for the new U.S. headquarters for the Red Bull Music Academy.
"After 15 years in the city and the last 10 years in Herald Square, we're very excited to be moving to this high energy location at the center of New York's bustling tech scene," says Michael Morrell, Campus Director for SAE Institute New York.
Along with new classrooms, studios, and expanded facilities, students at the SAE New York campus will also have access to new equipment and gear.
“In addition to continuing our tradition of training our audio engineering students on both a Neve 88R and an SSLG+ console, we’ll also be bringing in an Audient 8024 console to the new location,” says Morrell. “Focal monitors will be added to the already diverse list of sofited and near-field monitors in the control rooms. Our new campus will include all new Pro Tools 11 systems, new drum kits, and an impressive list of new analog and digital outboard gear. Blue Reactor microphones and Paso UHF lapel microphones - among others - will round out our outstanding microphone collection.”
A grand opening party will take place this Fall at SAE’s new Chelsea location featuring free tours, workshops, guest speakers, and opportunities for prospective students to demo the school’s new equipment, gear, and software.
