S3 Suite
Manchester : Intermediate
Designed primarily with electronic music production in mind, our S3 Suite is an incredibly versatile and creative facility.  Centred around an Avid S3 Control Surface and Pro Tools | Dock with iPad, our students have intelligent mixing control over Pro Tools HD and other DAWs, including Cubase Pro and Logic Pro.

The studio, built by Studio People, incorporates stereo and 5.1 surround sound monitoring, allowing our electronic music and audio post production students to learn and experiment with multi-channel production and mixing.  a 40" LCD TV aids any film/TV projects and lessons.

Packed with a mix of new and old equipment: from Pro Tools HD Native, Ableton Push 2 and Native Instruments Maschine, to the classic Akai S5000 sampler and four renowned Roland synthesizers, the S3 Suite can suit everyone's needs and workflow.  We've also installed a Technics 1210 turntable to record samples from vinyl and a Yamaha electric drum kit to input complicated MIDI drum patterns with ease.

All that hardware is complemented with a multitude of DAWs, plug-ins and instruments, including Ableton Live Suite, Arturia V Collection, Native Instruments Komplete, Sonnox Elite Bundle, McDSP Everything Pack, Celemony Melodyne, Xfer Serum and many more.
