The Purcell School – Britain's oldest specialist music school for young musicians – has received a donation of a PreSonus StudioLive mixer from HHB Communications in celebration of its 50th year anniversary. The donated PreSonus 16.0.2 mixer is now part of a new portable recording system that will be used to capture multitrack recordings of the school’s music programme, which take place at music venues across the UK. “In the past our larger location recording sessions have been burdened by arranging special transport for our existing flight-cased system. The PreSonus mixer is compact enough to be hand carried to venues, and its features allow our students to experiment with multi-microphone recording techniques. And as a modern digital mixer the StudioLive gives us a valuable new teaching resource,” stated Aidan Goetzee, head of music technology at The Purcell School (pictured right, with HHB's Andrew Hingley). HHB has been involved in supporting The Purcell School’s development of music technology for the past 10 years, particularly with the recording studio facilities in its New Music Centre. “HHB is delighted to partake in The Purcell School’s 50th anniversary celebrations. They have been a great customer of ours for over 10 years through their commitment to music technology, and we are proud of our involvement with specifying and installing its professional quality recording studios,” commented HHB educational sales manager Andrew Hingley. www.hhb.co.uk
