Recently completed, the new 12,000-square-foot Joan and Andy Horner Hall (at Dallas Baptist University) includes a 2,400-square-foot recording studio designed by Russ Berger Design Group, and features an Avid D-Command 24 console and Pro Tools. Recessed sliding glass doors in the adjoining soundstage can be opened up to enlarge the studio space. Two smaller control rooms let students mix projects independently from the main studio. Storage and a central equipment room complete the facility.
“We are looking at creating a campus record label to help launch the careers of our singer/songwriters, student bands and student recording engineers,” says Terry Fansler, director of studies in Music Business and associate professor of Music at DBU. “We hope to also offer the use of the facility to the Dallas/Fort Worth music industry and church community, which will create even more hands-on opportunities for our student engineers.”
Dallas Baptist University offers degree programs in Communications, Fine Arts, Music and Music Business.
