Critical Listening Environment for Audio Research (CLEAR) Laboratory

Critical Listening Environment for Audio Research (CLEAR) Laboratory

The CLEAR Lab commissioning event is set for Friday 7/29 at 1pm in ITC 384 ( The CLEAR Laboratory) in the department of Music and Arts Technology. Carl Tatz, the studio designer, will be there to commission the Lab and the state-of-the-art Technology.

The Critical Listening Environment for Audio Research (CLEAR) Laboratory is a state-of-the art facility for the recording, production, and mixing of musical projects. The CLEAR Lab is a hub for creativity and learning within the Department of Music and Arts Technology. The Lab is currently outfitted with an analog SSL mixing console, Kef monitors, and the latest versions of Pro Tools, Live, and Max.

In the summer of 2016, through funding from a Learning Environment Grant, the CLEAR Lab will be updated with a Carl Tatz Mixroom™ and Phantom Focus Speaker System™. This system pairs a specialized-speaker system with an acoustically isolated listening environment. Also this summer, students in both the Engineering Technology and Music and Arts Technology departments will participate in the Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Institute (MURI) to build and design 8 Fet Hardware Compressors that work with the modular analog SSL mixing console.

In addition, the CLEAR Lab serves as a critical listening environment for the process-based recording practice of the Janus Recording Project. The Janus Recording project aims to develop new and innovative recording techniques for New Music.
