As an ICMP student you have access to a comprehensive range of industry-standard recording and production facilities. This not only will provide you with plenty of opportunity to learn the skills and techniques essential to modern music production, but also to produce your own projects and collaborate with students from other faculties. These class-leading facilities are available to all ICMP students, with a particular emphasis on those who have chosen to study production-specific courses.
Specifically, ICMP offers you the following:
Completed in the summer of 2016 and built to exacting standards by Slowglass Creative, ICMP’s flagship studio is one of the first to utilise Audient’s latest ASP8024 Heritage large format console. Our desk has been configured with 2 producer panels to mount Avid’s S3 digital control surface and our bespoke side-car incudes classic outboard like UAD’s 6176 Vintage Channel Strip and Lexicon’s PCM-92 FX processor.
