General Information about the EA Studios

There are three electroacoustic music composition studios. The main studio (Bennachie) is centred on a Mac Pro 6 core computer, running Digital Audio Workstations such as Reaper, Logic and Digital Perfomer with access to a wide range of sound transformation software, including GRMTools, Pluggo, Waves, Soundhack, Audiosculpt and Michael Norris. Studio control is via Icon Qcon Pro (extended to 16 channels) with stereo monitoring via Genelec 1038A speakers (+ 2 x 7070A subwoofers) and 8 channel and surround sound monitoring via Genelec 8250APM speakers. The studio can accommodate compositional projects up to 32 channels.

Two further studios (Mither Tap and Tillimuick) are also Mac-based with Reaper and a range of plug-ins.
