Studer-Soundcraft Demo Truck to visit College of Media and Entertainment in November

Studer-Soundcraft Demo Truck to visit College of Media and Entertainment in November

 Save the date: Thursday, November 15, 2018.

A unique opportunity is in store when Harman International's audio console demonstration truck will dock at MTSU this November.  Multiple Harman brands, including Studer and Soundcraft production consoles along with Crown, BSS and JBL equipment, will be on display and operational for visitors to explore.  

Studer and Soundcraft consoles are widely used in studio and remote/mobile broadcast production, sound reinforcement and music mixing.  

Assuming that the weather does not impact the truck's schedule, we expect the open house to run from approximately 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The truck will be parked near the loading dock on the south side of the College of Media and Entertainment (Bragg Building).
