TVU launches music technology facility

Thames Valley University’s London College of Music has opened a computer-based audio production technology laboratory


ThamesValleyUniversity’s (TVU) London College of Music has opened a computer-based audio production technology laboratory in partnership with software instrument market leader Native Instruments.



The music kit sponsored by Native Instruments will make TVU one of the UK’s largest music technology facilities and an official NI training facility.



The new laboratories have their digital audio workstations equipped with KORE 2 and KOMPLETE 5, enabling hundreds of TVU students to pursue their studies as sound engineers, among other disciplines.



A total of 166 seats have been similarly supplied by NI to equip all workstations and studios across both the Ealing and Reading Campuses, and NI software now features in modules across several degree programmes.



Christopher Batchelor, head of London College of Music said: ‘London College of Music and ThamesValleyUniversity are delighted to be working in partnership with NI. As Britain‘s largest Music Tech facility, we will be able to bring hundreds of students a year into contact with all the NI gear by putting it at the core of the curriculum.’
