Audio Production Program Receives New Equipment
Mesa Community College recently added new state-of-the-art equipment to the college's Audio Production Technology Program. The Yamaha Digital Live Sound Mixing Console M7CL is a digital mixing console for live sound applications that have previously been handled by analog gear.
"This is a big deal--a big shot in the arm for the Audio Production Technology Program," said Andy Seagle, Program Director. "This technology is very popular in concert venues and churches across the nation."
The equipment will be installed at Bethany Community Church in Tempe. MCC has a partnership with the church and holds live sound classes at the facility. Seagle said MCC's live sound classes are a hit with not only students who wish to make a career in the music industry, but also with church members from the local community who need to learn how to use the sound equipment in their churches.
Seagle is eager to share the new equipment with students as they begin classes on Jan. 20.
"This equipment makes MCC audio production technology students much more marketable," Seagle said. "That's the bottom line."
