The ability of Jordan and Sean to encourage, support, and get the best out of our audio engineering students is a huge asset for SAE New York, and Anna’s comfort in the studio was a direct result of their talents.

Anna Gilligan, a reporter for WNYW-TV’s “Good Day New York”, received a singing makeover from Head Lab Instructor Jordan Gutshall and Lab Instructor Sean Kalaras at SAE Institute’s New York campus. Gutshall and Kalaras used SAE’s professional studios, recording equipment, and audio processing software to improve Gilligan’s studio performance of Maroon 5’s hit “Sugar”.

“Working with Anna was a lot of fun,” says Kalaras, who along with Gutshall is graduate of SAE New York. “She had a great attitude and took directions very well. Her song choice was not an easy one but she made substantial progress during the session, and in the end, she sounded great.”

Gutshall and Kalaras recorded the vocals with a Neumann U87 microphone into a Cartec Audio PreQ-5 preamplifier and a Focusrite Red3 Compressor. The track was mixed on an SSL 4000G+ Console. Avid Pro Tools HD 11 was used to capture the performance.

Steven Kashkin, Campus Director of SAE Institute New York, wasn’t surprised by the quality of Gilligan’s “made over” singing.

“The ability of Jordan and Sean to encourage, support, and get the best out of our audio engineering students is a huge asset for SAE New York, and Anna’s comfort in the studio was a direct result of their talents,” says Steven Kashkin, Campus Director of SAE New York. “There’s no better example of their amazing skills than the big reveal of Anna’s new and improved singing. The three of them made a great team, and I’m thrilled that Anna seemed to enjoy the experience so much.”
