The DMI Sandbox is a small studio space designed for ‘in the box’ recording and mixing. The Sandbox also houses a small editing suite to transfer content from analog media (cassettes, reels, LPs) to digital media (CDs, DVDs, hard drives). The editing suite is equipped with an Apple Mac Mini computer, ProTools 11, Mackie and JBL monitors, a Sony cassette deck, Technics turntable, ReVox PR-99, an Otari MX-5050 1/4″ 4-track and an on-disc printer, providing students hands on application in transferring, editing, and labeling audio for campus and community clients.
Students also have opportunities for entertainment industry research, content reinforcement, and hands on application with various software packages, plug-ins, and auxilliary audio gear. This learning environment is designed to enhance the entertainment industry curriculum presented by the DMI.
