Here at Northbrook College Sussex we are proud to own one of the most comprehensive studio complexes in the south of England. We have over 25 studios including control/ live room suites, air conditioned performance spaces, pre and post production rooms, along with dedicated computer clusters and a sound and synthesis lab.
In 2015 we moved into a brand new studio complex at our University Centre Campus, with acoustic and technical design by leading industry consultants.
We realise it is vital that you learn on the latest and most current equipment, ensuring your skills are the ones which match the requirements of employers and clients. Studios are equipped with the latest industry standard hardware and software; Focusrite, Neve and SSL Channels; Soundcraft Desks, Digidesign Icon and HD, TC Electronics, Drawmer and TLA Audio processors plus a comprehensive range of software including Pro Tools, Logic Studio, Ableton Live, MaxMSP, Sibelius, Native Instruments, Waves Audio and East West. To ensure they have the power to run smoothly, we have 70 new iMacs, 15 MacBook Pros and 11 Xeon Mac Pros along with a team of full time technicians to keep everything performing properly so you can get on with producing and creating.
Our performance spaces all include PA and Monitoring with Gretsch Kits, and a comprehensive range of amps including Peavey, Line6, Hartke and Vox plus a list of over 40 microphones from SM58 to Neumann U87 ensuring you can capture that perfect take or deliver that perfect performance.
We have a dedicated composition suite of iMacs with Logic Studio, Sibelius and East West Sample banks (Orchestra, Choir, World, Gypsy, Silk and Storm Drum) installed along with access to our superb recording rooms so that you can create works of the best possible commercial quality and build that vital professional portfolio.
We are an Apple Authorised Training Centre for Education. We are also an accredited training centre for Pro Tools and Logic Studio Pro and are in the process of adding Ableton Live to this list, giving you the opportunity to gain professional certification alongside your degree.
Music students can also make use of The Northbrook Theatre, an on-campus performance space, which can accommodate up to 300 people. The purpose built theatre is extensively resourced with up-to-the-minute technical equipment: sound system, moving lights and multimedia projection.
