Autograph Assist Leading Theatrical College With New Audio Facilities
Autograph Sales & Installations have recently supplied a package of professional audio equipment to the Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance.
Located in Sidcup on the southeastern edge of London, the college is a leading centre of learning for those seeking a career in the performance arts, whether in the spotlight or engaged in the many technical disciplines that support artistes. It offers a very comprehensive portfolio of both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, including a BA (Hons) Performance Sound (Live Design and Engineering) course which allows students to develop the skills to work as a sound designer, live mixing engineer, studio manager, sound editor or sound operator while learning to mix, record and edit live performance audio.
Central to the equipment package, and key to providing contemporary learning facilities to nascent theatre sound operators, is a new DiGiCo SD9-T digital mixing console complete with two DiGiCo D-racks providing system connectivity. The console also features the ’T’-series theatre software, developed in association with Autograph and in daily use in professional theatres - DiGiCo mixing systems are the global ‘gold standard’ in theatrical audio mixing, so the ability for students to learn on the same digital platforms as they will encounter later is a huge advantage.
Autograph also supplied four d&b audiotechnik Q10 compact near-field loudspeakers as well as D80 amplifier / controller from the same manufacturer to drive them, and a selection of K&M stands.
