WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, July 30, 2009 — The Art Institutes is a system of over 40 educational institutions throughout North America, providing an important source of design, media arts, fashion and culinary arts professionals. As part of an ongoing effort to provide students with exceptional technical support, The Art Institutes are expanding and upgrading the facilities of their professional Audio Production Program. Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, is supplying a variety of gear for the systems, which are being designed by the Walters-Storyk Design Group (WSDG). The first system was recently completed at The Art Institute of Washington (D.C.). GC Pro Senior Account Manager P.K. Pandey was the GC Pro contact for the project.

The 1200-square-foot Audio Production complex at The Art Institute of Washington consists of a 500-square-foot live studio, a 350-square-foot control room, a 135-square-foot multi-purpose sound lock, a 100-square-foot isolation booth and a 140-square-foot machine/storage room. The new setup features a ProTools HD system, an SSL AWS 900+ console, Genelec 1038B Tri-Amplified Active Monitors for stereo and Dynaudio AIR 15 2-Way Active Nearfield Speakers for the surround sound. Additional components include a TC System 6000 and other equipment from Neve, GML, Vintech, Manley, Summit, Eventide, Lexicon, SSL and Millennia, along with studio mics from Neumann, Sennheiser, AKG, Royer and Shure.

Ayinde Olubayo, Audio Engineer for The Art Institute of Washington, was the main on-site contact for the project. He stated, “P.K. and the GC Pro team have really been outstanding. Their huge knowledge base, as well as the work ethic and know-how to get the job done, has made this a wonderful experience. GC Pro’s customer service is second to none, and it is great to know that our relationship with them doesn’t end after the installation is finished.”

Aside from the Washington school, WSDG and GC Pro recently completed a similar upgrade for The Art Institute’s Nashville campus and are setting their sights on Miami.
